Nigeria: "Rohr Has To Stay In Nigeria To Get Contract Renewal"...Pinnick

The president of Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick, has stated that the head coach of the Super Eagles has to stay in Nigeria to get his contract renewed, Diamond Hub 101 reports.

Mr. Pinnick stated that the board wants to make sure that Gernot Rohr is totally committed to the Super Eagles...



We will start negotiating the new contract with Rohr in January. That would give us time to plan for the qualifiers, which begin in March. We are not going to compromise our national integrity again. He must live in Nigeria and can go to Europe two or three times a year. He can stay either in Lagos or Abuja, where we are ready to provide a befitting accommodation for him. Other national teams’ coaches live in the countries where they work and ours cannot be different. I must admit that the last contract was loose in so many areas, but we want to correct that now.

The president made mention of the German being subject to the tax of the country like other Nigerians.


Gernot Rohr helped the Eagles dominate Group L in the AFCON 2021 qualifiers.
