No Plan To Sack Gernot Rohr – Pinnick

NFF President Amaju Pinnick has revealed that the federation does not have any plan to sack Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr.

The German tactician has come under scrutiny after the Super Eagles failed to win their Afcon doubleheader clash against Sierra Leone.

Nigeria surrendered a 4-0 lead in the first leg at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium to play out an embarrassing 4-4 draw.

The second leg ended 0-0 in Freetown, result that further angered football followers in Nigeria.

However, Amaju Pinnick said the German is not close to losing his job.

“”Nobody is happy about what happened against Sierra Leone in both matches,” Pinnick told BBC Sport Africa

“But it is not enough to sack the coach because his team is still top of the Nations Cup group after four matches”.

“His statistics speak volume for him, so on what indexes do we want to sack him considering the contract recently signed by both parties”.

“No matter how emotional and disappointed the fans are, there’s no basis to sack him now and he deserves to keep his job.”

Super Eagles failed to win any of their four matches in 2020 drawing three and losing one.
