Embattled Super Eagles Coach, Gernot Rohr may not lead Nigeria to the African Cup Nations next year amid reports of his sack circulating the media in recent weeks.
Rohr has come under severe criticism following the Eagles’ lacklustre performance during the concluding phase of their World Cup qualifiers.
While the German’s sack appears imminent, Rohr has demanded that the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) pay him his outstanding salaries of two months and an additional four months before he quits the team, according to PUNCH.
The 68-year-old who has 12 months left on his deal with the NFF has reportedly asked to be paid bonuses for qualifying the Eagles for the forthcoming AFCON in Cameroon and World Cup playoffs.
The NFF and the Sports Ministry are currently finalising details concerning Rohr’s disengagement, as well as the new Coach to lead the national team, but are yet to agree with the Franco-German over his pay-off.
Several reports claim that the federation is considering hiring Serbian Mladen Krstajic to replace Rohr if he is relieved of his job.
Rohr was appointed in 2016 and has recorded 28 wins, 13 draws and 13 defeats in the 54 games he has been in charge of the team.
