If Genort Rohr Agrees To Our Terms, He Will Keep His Job – NFF
The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) president, Amaju Pinnick has cleared the air on whether Super Eagles coach Genort Rohr will have a contract renewal or not.
CitySports report that Rohr’s contract will expire in June 2020.
Speaking on the Nigeria’s male national team gaffer contract renewal, NFF president, Mr Amaju Pinnick said that, agreeing to a contract term is not his sole responsibility. So, his team will sit with Rohr, talk about the new work framework, should he agrees, then it is done. Pinnick confirms this in an interview with Punch.
Quoting Mr Pinnick verbally, when asked about Rohr’r future with the Eagles:
“I am the president of the NFF and it is not run by one man. While I have the loyalty of the NFF Executive Committees is that they take decisions that are strategic and they bring to me.
This is a very sensitive question. But beyond that, we must respect what’s in a contract. We have a contract with him till June and you will recall that we did not even wait until the 2018 World Cup before we signed an extension with him.”
“I have a very cordial relationship with him, very cordial. And I’m proud of that. The good news is that he is under contract till June. Contract is not done by one person; it must have two parties or more. We will sit down and say. ‘Look at our situation as it is, can you work with this framework?’ If he says ‘yes’, then it’s done.
But if not, we cannot kill ourselves. This is the truth. Then we can say, ‘you are not ready.’ One thing we don’t want to do is to put our team in jeopardy. So, in the next few weeks, the first vice president, who is in the legal team, will lead a committee, with chairmen of Technical, Establishment and Marketing, Secretary-General and Head of Legal (unit) to sit down with Rohr and tell him, ‘Look at our situation. Can you do this and that?’ If he agrees, why not?”
Genort Rohr has qualified Nigeria for two major tournaments with one game to spare, a feat Nigerians the German tactician will exceed in the coming years.
