By Abdulgafar Oladimeji

The future of Super Eagles gaffer, Gernot Rohr has come under uncertainty, as his employers may resort to show him the exit.

Nigeria’s football –governing body, NFF Thursday reacting to the vast rumored sack of the Franco German tactician said that “no such decision has been taken.

However, NFF media department quoted the president of the federation, Pinnick Amaju as saying “The Board of the NFF is studying the report of the Technical Committee, which it submitted after the match against Cape Verde in Lagos on Tuesday. There are a number of possibilities but we have not taken a decision to sack Gernot Rohr. I want to assure that whatever decision is eventually taken will be one that will please the generality of Nigerians.

“Mr Rohr has a contract with the NFF and there is a procedure for disengagement. If we get to that bridge, both parties will look at the contract and see what has to be done both ways. The Super Eagles’ squad is a national asset and we are just fortunate to be in that space to take decisions. Any decision we take must be what will be acceptable to Nigerians from far and near.”

In the aftermath of Nigeria’s 1-1 draw against Blue Sharks of Cape Verde, last Tuesday in Lagos, Nigerian have cried out against what they described as poor runs against teams considered to be minnows, therefore the mass outcry from the fans, for the sack of the German.
