The President of Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, Amaju Melvin Pinnick has confirmed that the Federation has concluded contractual agreement with Super Eagles gaffer, Gernot Rohr which will make him remain in charge of the national team ahead of next African Cup of Nations and FIFA World Cup.
This was confirmed by the NFF President on his official Twitter handle @PinnickAmaju moments ago.
“I am happy to announce that NFF and coach Gernot Rohr have concluded all contractual discussions and he will stay on as coach of the Super Eagles. We have always had confidence in his abilities and we are confident that the national team can only go higher from here.” He tweeted.
“We can now focus on qualifying for the World Cup and winning the Nations Cup. In truth, these are sacrosanct and Coach Rohr is aware of these conditions. Like the Honourable Minister of Youth and Sports Development has rightly noted; we are uncompromising in these goals. The board of the Federation and I are totally in agreement with the minister on the goals for the team and it is unwavering.”
Amaju Pinnick also seized the opportunity of the announcement to thank the Federation sponsors most especially Aiteo Group for their immense support during these trying times.
“In the same vein, I would like to thank our sponsors especially AITEO. Aiteo’s support for our football is unquantifiable, even in these difficult times and I can not stress enough, how much of a rock they have been. Thank you, AITEO”
“With this distraction of the contract talks out of the way now, we can now face our football on the pitch, totally. Again, I never lost confidence in Gernot Rohr’s ability to take our football forward and I’m convinced our football will only get better from here on.” He concluded.
