The head of the Super Eagles crew, Gernot Rohr has declared his readiness of him getting fired from his current position by the Nigeria Football Federation.
Rohr said if his team fails to perform to their satisfaction at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon, then he is ready to face the axe.
According to Elegbete TV via The Punch, Rohr says he is confident the country will do well at the 2021 AFCON with the quality of players in the squad.
The Franco-German also stated that he is not scared of getting sacked if they fail to achieve the federation’s desired target in Cameroon
“When I was coming to Nigeria, I signed that the job is done if I don’t qualify for the World Cup, the second time I also signed that the job will be done if I don’t qualify for the AFCON and the third time I agreed that the job is done if we don’t do well at the AFCON,” Rohr told Elegbete TV.
“You can only stay in a country if the results are good, you have to go if it isn’t. Some coaches won’t but I agreed.”
Nigeria’s Super Eagles have been drawn in Group D alongside seven-time AFCON champions, Egypt as well as Guinea-Bissau and Sudan.
