The Nigeria Football Federation will reportedly be presenting a fresh contract to Super Eagles’ Manager, Gernot Rohr next month, which is a clear five months before his current deal expires.
According to the NFF, the deal will spell out certain conditions, which the German must adhere to, to avoid the issues that have dogged the national team and the coach’s relationship with the federation.
NFF President, Amaju Pinnick told journalists in Benin during the federation’s 75th Annual General Assembly that should Rohr decline the new offer, the federation would swiftly get a new manager.
Pinnick said, “We are going to present the contract proposal to Rohr next month and we have already mandated the first Vice-President to constitute the legal team to draft the new proposal, which will be made available to the coach next month.”
Pinnick expressed the NFF’s desire to retain Rohr as Super Eagles’ manager, adding, however, that in the negotiations, Nigeria’s interest would be paramount.
He added: “If we don’t want him to continue as Eagles manager, we would not even contemplate drafting a new proposal for him, but we are okay with him.’’
