The President of the Nigerian Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick stated via an interview that Gernot Rohr’s sack was a collective preemptive measure by the Executive committee to avoid an impending disaster.

According to Pinnick, the federation doesn’t want to wait for a disaster to happen before sacking the German Tactician who now holds the record for the longest-serving Super Eagles Manager.

“We gave him all the support and company, we build and rekindled and rebuild hope. We didn’t want to wait for a disaster to happen before parting ways”.

“The last two games were very tough for us and we did our intelligence based on what we knew or what was going on”. He said

Pinnick also confirmed that the NFF was owing Rohr for some months, saying the lack of discipline among the players was one of the major setbacks in the team.

Gernot Rohr took over the Super Eagles job in 2016 and qualified Nigeria to the 2018 World Cup, 2019 and 2021 AFCON and also the 2022 World Cup playoffs before he was sacked by the Nigeria Football Federation.
