We’re not aware of Gernot Rohr’s sack – NFF

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Assistant Director, Media, Ademola Olajire, has denied report that it has sacked Super Eagles head coach, Gernot Rohr.

Olajire said it’s only after a board meeting of the NFF and a signed statement released that Rohr’s sack could be authenticated.

“I’m not aware of Rohr’s sack because there are procedures for doing things at the federation.

“Before such a decision could be taken, there will be a meeting of the NFF board and a release issued to the public.

“As for now, I’m not aware of the sack. The online platform you claimed reported the story cannot announce his sack without confirmation from the NFF,” Olajire told Sportingsun.

Reports had emerged online on Thursday morning that the NFF sacked Rohr who appointed head coach of the Super Eagles in August 2016 following Nigeria’s World Cup qualifier 1-1 draw with Cape Verde.
