NFF begins to Gernot Rohr contract negotiations
The Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) is set to commence negotiations for the contract of Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr next week, according to NFF source.
Rohr is currently into the last six months of his current contract and the NFF will only give the German a new deal if he is ready to accept all the conditions that will be stipulated in it.
“The NFF is ready to renew the contract of the Super Eagles coach but it certainly won’t be a loose deal like the previous one,” the NFF top source said.
“There are certain conditions coach Rohr must agree to if Nigeria must retain his services. The NFF wants to ensure a better deal that will help the national team as well as the football development in Nigeria.
“We are definitely set for negotiations next week but the NFF is not going to compromise on certain conditions.”
Some of the conditions in the new contract are that Rohr must reside in Nigeria to coach the Super Eagles.
Also, he will be allowed to travel on vacation only three times a year while all his selections for the national team must be approved by the NFF Technical Committee.
Rohr who was appointed on a three-year contract in August 2016 has managed 39 games in charge of the Super Eagles with 22 wins, seven draws and 10 losses.
The 66-year old also led Nigeria to a group stage outing at the 2018 World Cup in Russia and a bronze medal finish at the 2019 AFCON in Egypt.
