The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), has said there are possiblities that Super Eagles’ Head Coach, Gernot Rohr could be sacked, but he has not been sacked anyway.
The name of the Franco-German tactician had prominently featured in both local and international media early on Thursday, with most platforms stating authoritatively that the 68-year old had been given the boot by the NFF, his employer.
However, a statement by NFF’s Director of Communications, Ademola Olajire, and made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), in Abuja, denied the reports of Rohr’s sack.
The statement quoted the President of the NFF, Amaju Pinnick, as saying that no such decision had been taken.
“The Board of the NFF is studying the report of the Technical Committee, submitted after the match against Cape Verde in Lagos, on Tuesday.
“There are a number of possibilities, but we have not taken a decision to sack Gernot Rohr.
“I want to assure that whatever decision that is eventually taken will be one that will please the generality of Nigerians,” he said.
