Rohr Deserved His New Super Eagles Contract  –Pinnick

President of the Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick, believes Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr has done well and deserves to remain in charge of the team, Completesports.com reports.

Rohr last week signed a new two-year contract extension that will see the German finish as the longest-serving coach in Super Eagles history by the end of his tenure.

Rohr, who has been in charge of the Super Eagles since August 2016, has been given a brief of leading Nigeria to qualification for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, and chasing a fourth Africa Cup of Nations title win in 2021.

The former Gabon and Niger coach and the NFF had been engaged in a protracted negotiation since last November.

“We are of the view and conviction that Mr. Gernot Rohr deserves to continue the job he is doing with the Super Eagles,” Pinnick said during his interaction with the media on Monday.

” I believe he has earned it. He had a right of first refusal so it was not a problem. We included a few other things in his contract but at the end of the day, we were able to come to an agreement.

“Presently, I am proud of the squad that we have. Without gainsaying, we have good players competing for every department on the field in the Super Eagles squad.

“It is exciting and we believe the team is on to a good thing. It is important that we work with him to nurture together a team that we can all be proud of.”

    The concession of a defeated man. You could not succeed with your corrupt schemes and now you have to put up an “If you cant beat them, join them disposition”. For me you have been one of the best ever FA chairmen Nigeria has witnessed in a lifetime but the shameful way you treated a man of dignity like Rohr in the past few weeks leaves a sour taste in the mouth. You know hes doing the right thing but ur love for money beclouded your judgement. Its a shame indeed. Going forward I encourage you to support this man of dignity and stop all these dirty games of money so you can leave an indellible legacy on the sands of the history of Nigerian football. You have a great opportuunity for greatness because God has put all these amazing football talents at your disposal at no cost, please make good use of this opportunity. But i bet you that if you dont, you may live to regret it because posterity will judge you harshly. Drop the love of money and Keep up the good work. We are all praying for your success. God bless you Amaju Pinnick.

    “Rohr Deserves New Super Eagles Contract- Pinnick”

    Hmm. Indeed, Mr. Rohr deserves a new contract because his achievements so far are undeniable.

    Does that ends there? I don’t think so.

    You as a leader Mr. Pinnick, do you think you are doing great as a good leader?

    You started well sir but you showed your true colour along the lines. We are human and we make mistakes and if you can redeem your image and rebuild the trust we have in you, then i will listen to you again.

    However, concerning the new contract of Oga Rohr, yes he definitely deserves a new contract as i said in the beginning.

    The team the manager is trying to build will be extremely good.

    What Mr. Amaju doesn’t understand is, Oga Rohr need an expert beside him. To help him when it’s matter most, he deserves an expert.

    I will give you one or two examples. Against Brazil in a friendly match Eagles played recently, that match would have bn won at least 3-0 in favored of Nigeria if the gaffer had an expert with in that match. Imama wasn’t sound enough to assist the coach likewise Yobo. We need somebody like Emenalo, Finidi and Amunike but Amunike is not available for now.

    Against Algeria in Egypt, Against Madagascar in Egypt, Against Croatia in Russia, Against Argentina at the world cup in Russia shows that the strength and capacity of the coach can not withstands strong and discipline teams. This is why NFF have to get someone to join the gaffer and Yobo.

    When head is not functioning well, it’s going to affect the whole body.

    Hmm. I still can’t believe that the same Super Eagles team that produced Peter Rufai, Ike Shorunmu, Enyeama and Ikeme can not even get a sound goalkeeper trainer to scout for a world class goalkeeper?

    It’s seems like coach Agu have a godfather in the NFF. If not, his department is struggling to produce good goalies for Nigeria. Although, we have Uzoho, Okoye, Alanpasun and Osage. We can get the best out of these four goalies if we have at least, two young modern goalkeeping trainers with them.

    Can you see now that you are not doing your job Mr. Pinnick? Sports minister can not do it all. This the reason why we are here to support you all.

    It’s a collective work, we have to do it together so that Nigeria can have a solid and fantastic team from now on.

    Having a good team is not enough.
    Having a good team is like a foundation of a building and the foundation is the structure of how the whole building is going to look like.

    Hmm. It is well. So therefore, if the gaffer doesn’t set targets and solid plans on how to win something big in any tournament, no matter how solid his team may be, without winning trophies is zero.

    Keshi’s team was not the best but the team managed to win Afcon trophy. This is why we can not forget about late Keshi.

    Here in Nigeria, we don’t celebrate Silver and Bronze medals. We recognized the second and third positions though but we prefer number one position to the two. We all understand that every day is not a new year but that number one position is always our target. Mr. Rohr should please understand that now.

    This is the reason why big teams in the world are the best because they dream big.
    They always go for the top positions.

    It is high time Super Eagles should join the best teams in the world. That is the purpose of having a foriegn coach. Ire o. God bless Nigeria!!!

      What are u really saying, this man bikonu? Chai. All you’ve written is not just making any sense. Are u sure you’re okay?????

       
    • @Omo9ja.How many coach have you heard them say that they are going to win a particular competition? What you will hear them say is that they hope to do well in the competition,but the fact is that they prepare well in order to win the competition.
      Will GR enter the field to play the matches? The players also have their duty to perform.If they cannot score a goal when an opportunity presents itself,how is that the coach’s fault? In the match against Brazil,the SE held their own very well.The SE created goal scoring opportunities and missed,same goes for Brazil.
      Please give us more information on this expert you want the NFF to put beside GR.

    Alas, the truth has finally come out from the horse’s mouth. You’ve been humbled by the turn of events and circumstances in your fight against a man that has done nothing wrong. What a confession. You knew all this before and you were busy jumping all over that place like a monkey in heat. You have finally swallowed your humble pie, others (including the ex cricket international alias mr Foolish) will follow suit soon. Ndi ara!

  • Omo9ja 3 weeks ago

    @Oakfield, is it a crime to advise coach Rohr on what to do? Stop following the coach blindly now. I have been fighting for our country for years Young man.

    Read what I wrote again young man. Mr. Rohr is not my enemy. What else do you wanted me to do again? It’s not about Oga Rohr, it is all about our national team, Super Eagles.

    The coach couldn’t recognized talents and i helped him with two fantastic players “Aribo and Ejaria” why did the coach woke up after my comments? Think about it. Use whatever you have to fight for your country and not the bad words you people are using on this platform to bring down your nation.

    you can search for my comments based on what I just said today. My records are there. CSN can help you guys out if you guys wanna see the comments I’m talking about. So, Oga Oakfield, behave yourself. God bless Nigeria!!!

    @Omo9ja, you don’t need to get yourself worried, Rohr is not a Zombie, not to have deemed it fit to request for replacement of Agu which everyone knows goal tender is the weakest section in the super eagles. It does appear oga Rohr prefer the Agu of this world and Immama to those that can help him .
    In any case , the progressives team like you have done their work, Amaju too have been humbled to insert all the condition in the Rohr’s new contract that the progressives team we clamoured for , so , the ball is now in the court of Rohr . After all you have heard loud and clear from the new sheriff in town Honourable Sports minister Dare “ NO MORE BUSINESS AS USUAL” the era of celebrating mediocrity achievement of shameful bronze medal is gone !! 

    I am not going to applaud Amaju , if not for our insistence that the right thing must be done , Rohr’s and his business partners NFF would have since signed contract extension since last year November with a padded salary increment and clause that would enable oga Rohr continue to stay in his comfort home in Germany.

    Keep your finger cross Omo9ja, If oga Rohr like , let him put Agu as S/E N01 choice , our own is NO MORE BUSINESS AS USUAL . By the way , did you see any of the progressives response to this oga Rohr’s business partner Amaju ? So chill Omo9ja

      I wonder oo,they would have listened to uncle sege(mathematically) and employ local coach that will b:
      **collecting bribe from players b4 they play(e.g coach S.Y)
      **parading players like FLAVOUR(uche ochebo),G.Reuben in World Cup instead of I.k uchebo, ideye(e.g coach S.K)
      **using quota & sentiment in selecting players(e.g coach A.Sh & coach Ch.Ch)

  • @Omo9ja…

    Abeg how many “EJARIA” do we have in NIGERIA, just asking pls???

    Becos the only Ejaria i know is the one MANU GARBA invited for trials back in 2013 when the NIGERIA U17 were preparing for their world cup… He fail to make the squad… If at all, i think credit should be given to MANU GARBA…

    As for JOE ARIBO; when he was about signing for ARSENAL that most of his agent started sounding the trumpet (as far back as 2018 if i’m not mistaken)… Finally, it was when MIKEL retired in july after the afcon that he was considered and u are here claiming chief scout on CSN FORUM….

    I SUSPECT U WERE THE ONE THAT SCOUTED THE LIKES OF EKONG, BALOGUN, COLLINS, AINA, EBUEHI, EHIZIBUE, DESSERS, (EZE, OSAYI), IWOBI, V.MOSES, AJAYI, OKOYI…..
    LEST I FORGET; THIS U17 & U20 BOYS (JINADU(GK),,, JOSEPH(GK),,, OFOBHOR(MF),,, DELE BASHIRU)….

    Let me introduce this one to u so that tomorrow u would say u were the one that scouted ALHASSAN YUSSUF of IFK GOTHERBURG of Sweeden…. Go and check… Our CSN chief scout….

    Chief scout keep scouting; u hear bar?

    @Omo9ja S.E chief scout, you said S.E lack good goalie. Please help us get good goalie I of you.

    Secondly, you said the coach should look inward i.e 9ja league players, but the same you went outside the shore of 9ja, scout for Aribo and Ejare. Sorry to ask, are the duo 9ja league players?

    From this end bros oga chief scout I loyal.
