πŸ‡³πŸ‡¬ Super Eagles coach Rohr on contract renewal

Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr has revealed he is 100 percent committed to his job and has never thought of quitting the national team. 

In his current deal with the Super Eagles, Rohr has only three months remaining. Reports suggest that the 67-year-old has received an offer for his contract renewal from the Nigerian Football Federation but he has revealed money won't be the topmost priority for him. 

In an exclusive interview with Sports Extra, he said, "I will not be a candidate for any other country because simply, I still have a contract with Nigeria and it is not my kind of work to do that."

"If somebody is thinking of me, I am grateful, which means perhaps I am doing a good job and it is still better if somebody wants to take you than when people don’t want you. They (NFF) are trying their best to honour my contract, but it is very difficult and it is still very difficult for them to honour it."

"It’s not the money problem, my father told me and I always tell it to my children, ‘if you promise, you must do it.’ The real problem I think the NFF has, this is the first country I see here in Africa where the sports ministry and the federation are not working together, in the other countries, I was paid by the sports ministry, they paid me."

"I had the contract with the NFF and the sports ministry, here the NFF has to find alone the money to pay all the things."

Before the appointment of Hossam El Badry, Rohr was linked with the Pharaos of Egypt last year.
