The Nigeria Football Federation NFF, dismissed rumours going round that the country had parted ways with Super Eagles’ head coach, Gernot Rohr, following what has been generally perceived as ‘unimpressive’ performance by the team in the race to Qatar 2022 World Cup.
The football governing body said there is no truth in the reports, adding that Rohr has a contract with the NFF, and there is a procedure for disengagement.
The NFF said, the Board of NFF is studying the report of the Technical Committee, which it submitted after the match against Cape Verde in Lagos on Tuesday.
According to online reports in the early hours of yesterday, Rohr was sacked after a company associated with the team agreed to pay the termination clause in his contract.
The reports stated that the NFF communicated the decision to Rohr, and had started the search for a new coach who will pilot the affairs of the team for the 2022 World Cup play-off, and also the Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroun in January.
