NFF Set to Offer Rohr New Contract

The president of the Nigeria Football Federation, Mr. Amaju Pinnick, has made it clear to the Super Eagle’s head coach that no one is indispensable when it comes to that top job.Rohr has been in charge of the Super Eagles since August 2016 and is now in the final three months of his contract with the NFF.The NFF are set to offer the German a new contract next week. This was what Pinnick stated on Arise TV on Monday, when he also made known the terms of the new contract.“Going forward, we want to be very thorough with Rohr’s contract. Let’s say within the next one week he should get his contract and he should study the contract and possibly come back to us because his contract ends in June,” Pinnick told Arise TV.“What I know and I have insisted, he must live in Nigeria. Anywhere of his choice, if he wants to live in Warri, if he wants to live in Lagos, no problem. He can travel three times in a week and he can bring in his wife.”“The reason why he needs to live in Nigeria is to go around the league and see how we can nurture some of these players and make them part of the national team. Two of us occasionally will go see some games and he can take notes.“Also, his salary will be in naira and that one is certain because we have to do everything humanly and materially possible in encouraging our currency. He will be paid in naira whatever his equivalent in dollars. If he is able to accept them, then we have a deal. But if he is not, there is nobody that is indispensable. There are lots of coaches out there that want to coach Nigeria.”He also added that the Super Eagles top job is an envy for alot of other coaches, who he claims have been making inquiries about the job.“I get calls every day from coaches that want to come. But we believed we can maintain this momentum and this relationship and we believe with the crop of players that we have, who are young, dynamic and very discipline, I believe we can do great things at the Nations Cup and even qualify for the World Cup and do well at the tournament proper.”“We want to maintain this harmony but the only thing that can impede it is if he refuses some of our new clauses in the contract.”
