Former Pharaohs of Egypt coach Hector Cuper is disappointed with the decision of the Nigeria Football Federation to hand Gernot Rohr a new contract.
Rohr is on the verge of penning a new two-year contract following weeks of negotiation with the NFF.
Cuper’s Egyptian-born assistant, Mahmoud Ahmed, told Premium Times that the Argentine was waiting to pounce on the Nigeria’s job should Rohr failed to agree a new deal with the NFF.
Mahmoud disclosed that Cuper was keen on managing Nigeria and Ghana and was willing to take a pay cut to manage the Super Eagles after failing to land the Black Stars job.

“Mr Cuper is ever ready to work in Africa with Nigeria and Ghana as countries of preference because of its abundant talents,” Mahmoud said.
“We had hoped to land Ghana job but GFA decided to close its door on foreign coaches and settled for Charles Akunor. Our attention was shifted to Nigeria and we felt salary problem between Rohr and Nigeria might be a problem.
“But its looks impossible now that Nigeria have decided to extend Rohr’s contract.”
Cuper is still without a job after he was sacked by the Uzbekistan FA in September 2019.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
