NFF’s austerity measure must start with Rohr’s exit –Ndubuoke



Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, has said he is focused on the 2022 World Cup qualifying games against the Central African Republic and does not want to think about his unpaid salaries.

Rohr has been dealing with delayed salary payments since he took charge in 2016.

After defender Leon Balogun opened the lid on unpaid salaries and bonuses in July, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) promised to pay all outstanding fees.

When asked if he has been paid his salaries ahead of Thursday’s match against the Wild Beast, Rohr said: “I will answer with a big silence because one day before the match, I don’t want to think about these things.

“I want to focus on my team, on the game, on our strategy and the dry training session and let’s speak about it soon after.”

Last year, Rohr said he agreed to a pay cut in his new two-year contract that was signed in May 2020.

The new deal includes a clause that he must receive his salary in local currency – Naira.

Former Nigerian defender, Christian Chukwu says Augustine Eguavoen is the best-suited coach to take charge of the Super Eagles.

Chukwu called on the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to keep Eguavoen in the position ahead of the Super Eagles World Cup qualifying playoffs.

Chukwu, who is a former national team captain told NAN that Eguavoen has instilled team spirit and discipline in the Super Eagles.

“Eguavoen did great in the competition. He is still outstanding among other African coaches in the ongoing competition.

“Eguavoen has already started working with the Eagles and understands the players to a certain extent and bringing in another coach now will destabilise the team.

“The new coach will come with his own ideas, which could take the players time to understand.”

The Super Eagles crashed out of the Africa Cup of Nations to Tunisia on Sunday, ending their fine run in the tournament.

AFCON 2021: Jay Jay Okocha blames two Super Eagles players for Nigeria’s elimination

Published

Former Super Eagles captain, Austin Jay Jay Okocha, has blamed two players for the elimination of Nigeria from the ongoing 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, in Cameroon by Tunisia.

Okocha said Super Eagles goalkeeper, Maduka Okoye and right-back, Ola Aina, should be held responsible for Tunisia’s match-winning goal against Augustine Eguavoen’s men.

Recall that Tunisia had last Sunday sent the Super Eagles packing from the AFCON in the Round of 16, thanks to Youssef Msakni’s second-half goal.

But Okocha believes Okoye should have saved Msakni’s long-range shot, while Aina would have fouled the Tunisia player before he took the shot.

“You expect when things go the wrong way that the goalkeeper might save the day but I thought he went a bit early to his right side and then it was difficult for him to adjust and make that save,” Okocha told SuperSport.

“It was a well taken shot there by the Tunisian and luckily for them that decided the game.”

On Aina, Okocha added: “You buy a foul, do something, stop the momentum of the game and let your players recover, but he made it easier for them.”
