Ex NFF Head of Technical Hit Out At Super Eagles Coach’ Failure To Land Trophy for Nigeria


The former Chairman, Technical Committee of the NFF, Barrister Chris Green has expressed his dissatisfaction over the coach of of Super Eagles Gernot Rohr’s failure to win trophies since Signing in 2016 when he took the mantled of the team.

The Rivers state born football administrator however said the German tactician doesn’t deserve a new contract and advice that he should leave when his contract Expires in the Summer.

“What is not clear to me is the worry to extend his contract, we are not talking of sack here but extension.

“If his contract ends he is free to go unless my guys in the NFF are satisfied with his score card or result, are you telling me that Nigerians are satisfied with Rohr for winning nothing with the Super Eagles for 4 years and earning a whooping $55.000.

“As an expatriate I would have expected that he would have performed better than our nationals, If you paid him that amount just to qualify the Super Eagles then we can as well pay same to any of our coaches around and get the same result.

“That one will be more beneficial to a Nigerian coach than for an expatriate to just qualify us to tournaments, failed to get to the second round of the WC and a modest 3rd place in AFCON.

“Meanwhile the NFF under Pinnick did a lot to support him. I don’t think this is what the NFF wants, Alhaji Maigari won almost everything with Super Eagles and other Nigerian coaches in the lower cadre, Pinnick is to passionate that he’s in fire need of a cup in AFCON or at the world level,let him look for a world class coach to make the present crop of the Super Eagles players invincible. He can achieve this, I tell you” Barrister Chris Green said.
