The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) have said it would renew Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr’s contract if he agrees to stay in the country.
Concise News reports that Rohr’s contract expires in June 2020 with the NFF and the German yet to finalise plans for a new contract.
While speaking about the coach’s contract impasse, Pinnick said during a media parley in Lagos State on Thursday that there would be new clauses to Rohr’s contract including making him stay in the West African nation.
“We are going to renew Rohr’s contract with Nigeria before it expires. Unlike the previous contract, we are going to insist now that he stays in Nigeria with accommodation for him in whichever city he prefers between Abuja and Lagos,” he said.
According to him, “He should be ready to work with the Technical Committee. We don’t want a repeat of some of the things that created problems to happen again as we aim to move the game forward in the New Year.”
On reports that the Sports Minister Sunday Dare is not happy about the state of football in Nigeria, he said: “Don’t forget the minister is the chief sports officer of the country.
“We don’t feel bad he spoke his mind on the state of football in Nigeria. We believe his intervention is bound to be a wake-up call for us and the players.
“Year 2020 is full of so much promise for Nigeria football. We have the qualifiers for both the AFCON 2021 and the World Cup 2022.
“We need to get our acts right from the first kick of the ball in the New Year because there are no longer minnows in African football.”
Also, Pinnick hinted “that the NFF secretariat will relocate to the Sunday Dankaro House before the end of January.”
