ROHR FED UP WITH DISRESPECT, BROKEN PROMISES

Nigeria national team coach Gernot Rohr has revealed he is undecided as to whether he should renew his contract with the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).

Rohr, 66, has been in charge of the Super Eagles since 2016, and has led Nigeria to two major international tournaments: this year’s Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt, placing third; and the 2018 World Cup in Russia, where his team failed to progress from the Group Stage.

The German has a contract through to 2020.

Speaking to German newspaper Mannheimer Morgen, Rohr declared himself conflicted over the prospect of staying on beyond the expiration of his current contract.

“On the one hand, we have built up a good team, the youngest on average in Africa.

“On the other hand, there are many things that make daily work difficult: lack of respect, organizational problems, promises are not kept.

“We’ll see how it goes. But I love this team,” Rohr said.

The former Gabon and Niger coach will next lead the Super Eagles in a friendly against Brazil on October 13, before the qualifying series for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations begins in November.
