Gernot Rohr has come under fire from the NFF for allegedly ‘snitching’ to the media about details of his contract among other offences that would amount to a breach, but the old warhorse isn’t perturbed and will fight on.
One thing that’s clear is Rohr wants to keep his job, but the German is also open to discuss with suitors as his role as Super Eagles head Coach is increasingly threatened and uncertain.
In an exclusive interview with www.brila.net, Rohr stated that plans for the AFCON and World Cup qualifiers are ongoing, but will not resist speaking with other ‘Federations who want to have me.’
“Yes, the situation is simple. My contract runs until June 2020, but we’ve already started playing the qualifiers, we’re doing well at the moment and am also ready to discuss the terms of a fresh contract.
‘It is true that there are other Federations that want to have me, but I told them my priority is to discuss with the NFF, that is the situation.
“But, after the 1st of January I’m free to sign where I want and after the 1st of July I will be free.
“That’s why I think, the next step will be to wait for the NFF. We have our team, our plan and our project and our program, to go to the Afcon first and then start with the world cup qualifiers.
“This team has a good chance to be at the world Cup again because every one wants to be there.” Rohr told brila.net.
