Rohr: ‘I Was Never In Nigeria Because Of Money’

Rohr: ‘I Was Never In Nigeria Because Of Money’

Former Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr has denied reports that his decision to managed the Nigerian team was because of the money involved in it.


Rohr, whose contract was recently terminated by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), made this known in an interview with ESPN.

The German tactician, who was replaced by Austine Eguavoen as Super Eagles interim coach, stated that he has his reputation to protect and can never be corrupt.


“No, never,” Rohr responded when asked if anyone ever offered him money to invite a player.

“They know me in Africa and in Europe for a long time that I’m part of these people who can never be corrupted. My reputation is there. To take one player to help him in some clubs is something we did, but only in the interest of Nigerian football, only to help the players, and never for money.


“If I was in Nigeria for money, I could have left a long time ago. Instead, I proposed a 20 per cent cut in my salary because of the pandemic. But even then, the salary is not always coming — and still not coming.


“I’m surprised to see how Nigeria treats their coach. It’s not only for me; it’s also for other coaches. We’re not paid and we’re sacked.”

    This man really loves Nigeria. Imagine working without being paid and qualifying for tournaments with games to spare. Heaven bless Gernot Rohr and all deserving Super Eagles former and present coaches.

     
    • Are you guys seeing all the revelations now. Yet some people will be abusing this man. I mentioned it here earlier how he was helping players get into better clubs as one of his impact areas, they said I was lying. Now you have heard from his mouth THAT NFF is still owing him self and yet He was sacked for performing.
      The things people like Segun Odegbami, Omo9ja, Jimmylie and Larry,Ugo”blabbermouth” Iwunze cause in Nigeria is why where we are today.
      All noise mostly from a selfish And wicked perspective. No coach either Nigerian or foreign needs to be sacked when he has performed according to his contract.
      If you support his sack, especially when he has met his target. Just pray something similar doesnt happen to you. Then you will understand agony.

      God bless you Gernot Rohr.

        Thank You. They are all silent now, yeye people, NFF dealt with late Keshi Late Amish, yet people can’t see. Open their mouth saying this. Was he not getting it right? He was, now they happy Cerezo is here, Cerezo don’t know nothing. Let’s keep watching the movie NFF has created.

          Who will come to Nigeria to coach without salary? Even the Pope cannot work with a corrupt and primitive organizations like the NFF and Sports Ministry

           
  • Dennis 5 months ago

    Shame on you NFF. So this man willingly accepted a cut due to the pandemic yet he salaries didn’t always get paid and he’s still being owed. Shame on you
    Some people think Rohr is the problem. No,he wasn’t the problem. He complained about Lagos pitch but that fell on deaf ears. Wasn’t that stadium later banned by CAF? No wahala. Make we dey look dey go

     
    • Is that news? All soccer players plus coaches worldwide accept % cut during the pandemic now, what’s the big deal? Plus nobody is saying he didn’t try, but we need move on, he should stop lamenting because that’s not gonna reverse the situation, hire and fire goes 5/6 with coaches , Rorh is old enough to know that, to even think he hold the record for the country longest serving coach, abi him want die there nii?

      • Thats a lie, not all soccer coaches accepted a pay cut. Chelseafc and Real Madrid players and coaching staff didn’t.

        Know what you are saying. Stop your arrogance and ignorance. Period.

         
        • You are the arrogant and ignorant here, abi Rorh Na ur papa nii, why do pain though? Real Madrid was even among the first clubs that accept pay cut abi what’s this one saying? Something all divert players did willingly for there clubs and you here lousy untop what you don’t know, move on or get ur grandpa another country to coach. Period.

           
          • So at least I have beaten the truth out of you. But you were here saying all players lije you kniw everything. Real Madrid was a bite for you intentionally. At least you won’t say Chelseafc accepted a pay cut.
            Instead of speaking like you have all the information you know ow just to discredit someone who served from his heart.

            Trying to justify yourself from your arrogance. Rohr is not my dad and never will he be. What I hate is people like you spreading false information just to prove your point. Why you know talk say Chelseafc accept pay cut. Mumuism, arrogance and ignorance is worrying you.

            Just like JimmyBall.

             
          • Also how is Ozil case different. After all your statement started with “all players” accepted a pay cut. Now Ozil case is different.
            Craze man

             
  • MONKEY POST 5 months ago

    imagine somebody going to war on the pitch with a 20 percent cut and still the salaries were not forth coming.. And yet someone came here to tell me I shouldn’t call him GENERAL ROHR… SMH…

     
    • Them force am? Please, the man was the former coach of Niger for Christ sake , he bribed his way in here and started messing up our football, wetin, If he is a coach that has it, he would have walked away but he did not because he was using our name to build his CV, while collecting money from the players he knew were not the best but made sure they kept their permanent shirt in the team.

       
      • benakay 5 months ago

        @ Frank Smith:
        The idiocy of your comments are mindboggling!
        Did he force himself on Pinnick before he was hired. Who did he bribe to get the job? Pinnick? I mean, are you really this dense?
        Gernot Rohr had a body of work that was attractive to the NFF at the time and they hired him. He played for Germany and he coached F.C. Bordeaux to the Europa Cup final. He came highly recommended by the German DFB. Westerhoff was not even recommended by the Dutch FA, for your information. The fact that he had also worked in Africa, coaching Niger and Gabon was a big plus.
        Using your name to build his CV? What stupid name are you referring to? Nigeria? What the fcuk have you achieved? What’s there to build with a useless Nigerian team?
        The way some of you people think and reason is just incredible. This man is very well respected in Europe and will continue to be respected, with or without Nigeria.

         
  • Dennis 5 months ago

    I remember when that old twat, segun odegbami said the renewed contract handed to Rohr was drawn in a way that rorh would reject it. I was shocked. When you initially hired Rohr, he was tasked with getting us to at least the AFCON asemis and the world cup. He did so and lost to eventual winners, Algeria. Now time to renew his contract you put up terms that would make the man refuse and reject the contract after meeting your initial terms. You subject his team to play on fields he has complained about, you owe him months and months and then you come out to say that you supported the coach all throughout his tenure. Wow.
    Which coach with a better pedigree would take up the eagles job when he becomes aware of stuffs like this? We might end up going for Maurice cooreman

     
    • Truth Is, we have set a bad precedence for Nigeria in global football especially with respect to hiring foreign coaches. A time will come that no foreign coach will want to work with Nigeria and our local ones will continue to fail us.

      What am I saying sef, after all if our goal is to “fail with our own”, then I can say we have no ambition of winning anything in African or World football. Leaving us once again in chaos. That is the mantra of Segun Odegbami,Omo9na, JimmyBall, Larry and Ugo Iwunze.

       
      • Benakay 5 months ago

        You know, you hit the nail on the head here. Nigeria is just one F’ed up country, through and through.
        We have so much talent and brainpower globally, yet we act like a bunch of illiterates and unintelligent people. We allow ourselves to be constantly ruled by imbeciles and that is why the country will never progress.

    The moment Austin Eguavoen was made technical director of SE I knew Rohr’s days as SE coach was numbered. Eguavoen knows the goings in NFF…they’re all together in the Glass house awon stomach infrastructure people. Amaju is the problem of Nigerian football, from the youth national teams to the NPFL then to both the Super Eagles and Super Falcons. Until Amaju leaves there will be no improvement in Nigerian football both administratively and on pitch. Amaju is a green eyed thief. Period!

  • Oakfield 5 months ago

    He took a pandemic pay cut, had his payment pattern changed from dollars to the useless naira, was still responsible for the payment of 4 of his staff! And, his salaries were not coming and still not coming but he still delivered the goods. Meeting targets given to him cheerfuly and not rediculing his employers in the media like they do. What sort of man is he (rohr). All my life, I’ve never seen such a humble and honest man. Did picnic and other demonic nff scribes take a pay cut during the pandemic? Would he (picnic) accept to pay his own back room staff from his own salary and still tolerate being owed wages and allowances for years and counting? These and many more are the inhumane treatments that rohr was deliberately subjected to by demonic people and yet got sacked unfairly. Odegbami and co would not deny they didn’t knew about all these I’ll treatments. In fact, he and his group of satanic agents were responsible for them but rohr had to endure and stay on bcs of his love for his boys. Who will ever chose to work in such a very toxic environment? Oliseh saw a bit and ran away. Let’s no forget, What goes around comes around. Karma is a bitch and would visit us very soon bcs of the actions of just a few wicked satanic idiots. It shall happen before our very eyes.

     
  • By the way, I saw the consortium of local coaches meeting yesterday to chat on Instagram- Kanu, Okocha, Eguavoen, Yobo, Ikpeba, Uche Okechukwu, Tijani Babangida, Sia One and Amokachi all sitting down and chatting. Kanu was even asking for Taribo West’s whereabouts.

    They are discussing, yet we never see team list. Only heard rumours of a 40 man list submitted by Rohr. Yet is not made public. We are watching.

     
  • Dr. Drey 5 months ago

    Hehehehe….but Pinnick went on national TV to tell plenty of lies.

    Please, some of our journalists in diaspora should please get a full, real EXCLUSIVE, a “No hold bared” interview from Rohr, because the ones at home have already be shut up with brown envelopes. They should get out as much truths as possible from Rohr. The man has a lot to reveal but he’s just applying wisdom of old age.

    Lies may run for years, the truth takes just 1 day to catch up….LMAOOooo.

    At least now we have a consortium of coaches…..NINE (9) in all…..LMAOOoo…..we wont tolerate excuses after all said and done. Some of us are not in the class of people who tolerate “failure simply because of skin color of nationality”.

    1. There’s already a team on ground…..a team that can qualify for 2 straight tournaments despite being owed bonuses for over 2 years……a team that can win 77% of its competitive fixtures based only on their “individual brilliance” (imagine what they will do with 9 coaches giving them instructions….LMAOOOo).
    2. Eguavoen has been following the team around as the TD of the federation.
    3. Aigbogun has been the defacto Asst Coach (since Yobo is useless) doing opposition scouting, coaching the homebased team, etc
    4. Salisu has been there as an assistant for ages.
    5. Yobo has been there (with no job description) as planted by NFF egg heads for reasons best known to them.
    Kanu, Okocha, Garba Lawal as Technical assistants and ambassadors (whatever that means in international football….LMAOOOo) have been in and around either the NFF’s technical department, technical committee or technical study group.

    So NFF even knew the importance of a strong technical bench, yet stripped the national team of all its technical staff and put a stooge who knows ZERO about coaching as Rohr’s assistant……LMAOOoo. They knew Uyo was our best facility in the country yet they took the team to grazing grounds and now that AFCON preparation is here, they’ve woken up to realize Uyo still exists…..LMAOOOo. Ok. “We gave him all the support he needed” indeed.

    Its the AFCON and world cup ticket or nothing….!!! Not all of us are failures who are ready to fail with anybody.

    We shall learn….LMAOOoooo

     
  • Patrator 5 months ago

    NFF shame on you! I knew all along that this man was treated badly. Sorry for the inconveniences Rohr, I wish you all the best .

    But you applied for Enyimba work, didn’t you?

    Is it all the inconveniences that made u invite your Ronaldo (Ighalo)ahead of more deserving players??

    Is it the inconveniences that made u lack proper match readings??

    The truth is, you’re not good enough but you tried your best and we appreciate it. It’s the bad dealings of NFF that’s making your sack look a bit sympathetic. Sacking you was right but maybe bad timing, they actually have no moral right to sack you because they owe you but my point is; you’re kinda below average and if not, you ought to have been hired by a team heading to Afcon ( nobody should give me excuse of old age o cuz it’s the old age he’s going to take Super Eagles to the Afcon if allowed)

    God will judge those involved in depriving you your right .

    Eguavon, do well o… The likes of Ben, Oakfield , Monkey Post are waiting for your failure o

    Cuz if u no do well, cry go plenty o

     
    • Dr. Drey 5 months ago

      Which Enyimba work did he apply for….LMAOooo. The one that that (ex-)convict lied about or which one…?? LMAOOooo.

      A man who was coaching OGC Nice in French Ligue 1 and European competitions at that time applied for Enyimba work…??? LMAOOoo. Please they should look for another lie to tells us in order to add to all the tons of lies they’ve all told so far……LMAOOOooo.

      Lies may run for years, the truth takes just 1 day (and sometimes, a click of an internet search button) to catch up….LMAOOooo.

        Well, it maybe true or false but those are his words. And like your words, sooner or later, we’ll get to know the truth.

         
  • No a you go cry infact you have been crying already because you already know what the outcome will but just because of your hatred for him you ganged up and supported evil. To you he is a below average because of the colour of his skin but your consortium coach is above average because they can be easily improverish we know you.

     
    • Patrator 5 months ago

      You assuming all these crap speaks volume of your personality. So I’m racist because I said Rohr is average? Like I won’t call out any of our own with poor performance.

      “you ganged up and supported evil”

      Ganged up? Are you alright sir? On top say people say their mind here don mean say dem gang up sack Rohr abi …cuz na we be decision makers

      I used to like Rohr until he started doing nonsense with that team for your info

      “but your consortium coach is above average because they can be easily improverish we know you.”

      When last have seen your doctor boss? Or could it be that you have comprehension issues? Whichever it is, sort yourself.

      Have I said Eguavon is above average?? His works will tell if he’s above average or Rohr-like ..that’s up to him but I support him because I’ve got to support him, Super Eagles is our own.

      And for you and your likes who always think everyone supporting Rohr’s dismissal got agendas, you lot better wake up and have sense

    @Patrator can you give what you don’t have??? I mean it’s so funny how y’all are depending on somebody who is depending on luck to succeed. SMH….

     
    • Patrator 5 months ago

      Brother, I’m keeping my fingers crossed to see how things unfolds. My point is that I can see you guys are just waiting for Eguavon to fail, I’m pretty sure it has gotten to the point where if this Super Eagles under Eguavon wins a match convincingly, una go feel bad cuz it’s not what you’re expecting…it’s just the truth. Do you really need that?? Wetin una wan gain there??

       
      • So now it is about Wetin we wan gain there. So you prefer that our football looses just because of selfish reasons Abi???
        Then our players can’t get into better clubs because of a small circle of selfish people. Then our ranking drops and your local Guardiolas will not be able to qualify with lowly ranked teams Abi???
        Or that even after this AFCON, when Eguavoen doesn’t get to where Rohr left at his last attempt, FIFA downgrades our ranking and we meet a harder opponent than usual, then we don’t qualify for World Cup because of ” Wetin una gain there”. Our football is now about personal gain???

         
        • Patrator 5 months ago

          Rohr wasn’t going to take that team anywhere above where he has taken them I’m very sure of that. And it seems you don’t even understand what exactly I was saying.

          Yes they’ve hired local coach and we all know most of these local coaches have corruption record or other obnoxious characters, It’s never even like I prefer Eguavon for that position but wetin I go do now wey dem don hire am? Na to just support and hope he succeed but the question is what are lot going to gain from anticipating Eguavon failure?

          And Of course we all want a sound coach who will take Super Eagles to the next level.

          Eguavon may not be your fav neither is he mine but we’ve got to support him for the sake of Super Eagles..

           
          • @Narrator, let’s not forget that it takes 2 to tango. We are just saying our own point of view here. The remaining part of the equation are the players.

            It’s left for them to decide if they will even be in camp for AFCON sef.

            Let’s see.

             
  • Garre 5 months ago

    There’s no gainsaying that NFF may have treated Rhor badly because of their corrupt practices but it doesn’t take away Rhor’s technical ineptitude and maladroitness. And truth be told there’s always two sides of a coin and i bet you he also had his share in corrupt dealings regarding players selection and it was so glaring for all to see.Would he admit before that he was ever involve in corruption?He is only trying to exonerate himself from any form of corruption but who in his right senses would leave out his best players and be inviting players that are under performing or past their prime?Y’all sounding like he is a saint whereas he also had his share in the corrupt dealings in the glass house. They’re all corrupt and it might shock u all that he was probably making more money off the deals between our players and their clubs as he was behind the movements of some of our players to new clubs. Or y’all want to tell me that he was doing it free of charge as a charity project since he is a Father Christmas. I guess Rhor is more Nigerian than us and he is more passionate than us,perhaps that’s the reason he stayed behind and even accepted a 20% pay cut to continue on the job as super eagles coach lol. I would not allow myself to be deceived by Rhor. It is so glaring something fishy was going on. Hence, NFF had to find a way to do away with him because it’s business as usual for both parties. If both NFF and Rhor isn’t corrupt on what criteria did the NFF agreed to pay Rhor to $2m as pay off ? Lol i guess he is the best coach in the world. They should all be deceiving themselves even the Egu himself isn’t the best indigenous coach NFF could contact but they’re all playing politics with our football. I wish them all the best and i can only wish for the best for our darling super eagles.

     
    • @Garre, while I understand your many points. Let me also say this, at the end it is Nigeria that suffers. If Rohr had an influence in player transfers and he made some cash there. It is his own by law, that is never seen as illegal under FIFA laws or player transfers. After all it was his connections one way or the other. If Eguavoen had those same connections, you think he wouldn’t do the same???
      Or was it not that late Keshi was rumoured to be a player agent. Let me ask you this, why did Eguavoen want 60% control of who gets invited if he does not want to do the same???
      Or is there any justification to call up Salisu from Royal Antwerp or Nwakali when Rohr’s list has added the players people were clamouring for???

      Even the Coach of Belgium Red Devils advises his players and helps them to move to bigger teams. He did it for Thibaut Coutois from Chelseafc to Real Madrid and the Hazard brothers.

      So what are we saying sef. If Eguavoen has the same connection, he should do the same. We think that this is a bad thing not knowing that most national team coaches who have made their path especially coaching youth teams in club football do when they get promoted to Senior teams.

      It is only our set of past Super Eagles players that can’t achieve this because most of them didn’t even go to school sef.

      Thats why they can gang up, it is always people of less talents and skills that do such things because they can’t stand on their own. The players who are well educated from our past include Oliseh, Olofinjana, Emenalo, Osaze, Akpoborire and Mikel Obi. That is why they are so quiet, you don’t see them making noise anyhow.

       
      • Garre 5 months ago

        @Ben i am not disputing your points but all I’m saying is that Rhor isn’t a saint anyway. Let’s call a spade a spade.Anyway I’m more concern about the growth of our football in general not just super eagles. NFF need to do better because our grassroots football is dead reason why they keep chasing after our foreign born Nigerian players. I think if NFF is truly doing what they’re supposed to do both our foreign born players and sponsors would be chasing after NFF to be part of our football culture but reverse is the case. So i still insist that they’re the enemies of our football development.

         
        • It is not the job of NFF to take football to the grassroot/schools. That job is for the Ministry of sports, infact, there is a department in the Federal ministry of sports responsible for youth development. The Federal ministry of sports, the sports ministry in all the states of the federation and both the federal and state ministries of education would have to sit down and map out a program for grassroot/school sports development. Until that is done our sports will not grow, even our local football league will continue to suffer from lack of real talents. If you like invest billions in our local league it will not produce the kind of talents we use to churn out in the past, what will then happen is players will flood our league from other African Countries because of the money.

           
  • MONKEY POST 5 months ago

    The point is some of us have decided to wash our hands of your evil gang up, I’ll treatment, injustice and unfairness against an innocent GENERAL ROHR. What is hard there for you guys to understand?? And I hear you talk about God judge the NFF on their ill-treatment of GENERAL ROHR. I began to ponder. If God will judge the NFF, what will happen to fans like your type that came up here tarnishing his image and hating on an innocent man?? Cos you guys contributed to his sack too..

     
  • MONKEY POST 5 months ago

    @Patrator honestly I didn’t see that guys comments before making mine. But however the guy is right.. cos gang up comes in two ways… Direct and indirect.. you guys might not have been directly involved in his sack but indirectly you guys contributed to his sack by using this CSN platform to rubbish him before NFF… Or Dem tell you say NFF no dey read una hateful comments here.

     
    • Patrator 5 months ago

      NFF go do wetin dem wan do regardless.

      I didn’t rubbish Rohr na, I only said the obvious, the problem just be una no like truth. You worship anything white skinned..if person white or black, if e good e good and if e no good e no good..I go talk am as e be regardless…

      Dem don sack Rohr and e pain una… Dt one no concern me

       
      • Again @Narrator, how was Rohr a bad person apart from not winning some matches. His target was to qualify Nigeria for tournaments. That is the final result, not all matches can be won in football, even Barcelona, Bayern, Madrid, Chelseafc, Man City etc doesn’t win all their matches. Talk less of national team coaches.

        Our problem is that we love sentiments in this country rather than facts. It is because of the sentiments of a few we have sacked a great coach.

        There is no other reward for us than failure. That is my bet. I also bet that Eguavoen will loose the dressing room at AFCON because those players Rohr assembled, especially the ones that are not born Here, have never known what it is to shut up.

        Just wait. We never see anything yet. Shebi no one could tell Osaze Odemwingie to shut up in the past. Thats why he was left out most times.

        Now we have Aribo, Leon Balogun, Troost Ekong, Pls Aina, Maduka Okoye, Dessers and Emmanuel Dennis and you want to shut them up Abi???

        Wait disaster dey come.

         
        • Sorry @Patrator.

           
          • Patrator 5 months ago

          @Ben, you said “There is no other reward for us than failure.”???????…you be bastard as you dey point to your papa house with bad finger. Shame on you and your irks. He should move on. Coach Egbu was sacked by oyibo people after winning the league for them, the world did not end and will not end now that we have sacked one of them. If you no like how God make you, better go turn oyibo. Oloshi!

           
          • Whoever you are, so one injustice serves another injustice to be done Abi???

            You are talking of our house like it’s something we Nigerians want it to progress in the first place. Do you even know what progress looks like yourself.

            Even in your local community, do you know what progress looks like or sound like??
            If biting one person because he bit you is progress then you know nothing.

            Thats called crab in a bucket mentality, no crab gets out because the others will pull him down.

            So because of playing pattern no sweet, we will now loose a coach that won everything.

            You said coach Egbu won the league for his club Abi??
            But you forget that they renewed his contract and made Champions League a mandate in his clauses. He lead them won his first match and was beaten in the return leg fair and square.

            Thats performance base, if you cant see that one, then you are not seeing properly.

             
          • Let me correct myself, Coach Ndubuisi Egbo drew his first match at FK Tirana and eventually lost out in the 2nd leg. After winning titles for them, he was dismissed on poor results in the league as well as Champions league. He lost 5 matches in a row before his dismissal.

    @Femi not all players and coaches sir. Last year mesut Ozil was among three players who refused to take a pay cut…one of the reason he had problem with the board until he was let to go. Baba say him na family man and them no brief am well..lol.. so what will you guys now say in the case of GENERAL ROHR that you guys call grand pa Rohr if him refuse to take a pay cut..If Ozil dey form family man.. Abeg if person try make we respect am..

     
    • Ozil s case is quite different now, he has been on loggerhead with arsenal board prior to COVID outbreak and he only decided to frustrate the entire team board members, other clubs accept a pay cut easily.

    We worship everything under white skin… Was Stephen Keshi white? Or was he bleaching?? That even after his death we are still worshipping him and singing his praises.. Oga you can’t fool Nigerians. If you have done well or you are doing well we will know…

     
    • Patrator 5 months ago

      But why are you and your likes not admitting to the fact that Rohr lacks tactical prowess? Keshi won us gold and he played beautiful football…Thanks

        Oh @Patrator…..so Keshi is now known to have played beautiful football and not “Gather and play” as was described while he was coach? The same mouth you are using to say Rohr was below average now will be the same mouth you will use to praise him as a pragmatic and tactical coach after all your consortium o failed coaches would’ve dealt with you guys.

        We are never wishing SE bad but we simply know the antecedents of all these consortium of failed coaches. Tell me one of them who has not failed serially before now? Eguavoen failed with Mikel Obi’s U-17 in 2003 but the same players went on to win Silver in 2005 U-20 and 2008 U-23 at the Olympics. He failed in 2006 AFCON with the most talented set of SE so far in history where he couldn’t win a single Knockout match, then failed to qualify from the group stage at 2011 CAF U-23 Tourney thereby missing out of 2012 Olympics.

        Why do we like to recycle failures in Nigeria beats my imaginations? We abhor success at every spheres of life in Nigeria and that’s why the country is in the state it is right now with no hope for the future.

        And your likes will keep on wallowing in the misfortune of such a failed state

        We dey sudden dey look

    @Ben don’t mind that nigga. He said all players and coaches accepted a pay cut….when we started mentioning those that didn’t, he started changing tone… LMAO!!!

    You’ll keep on wallowing in misfortune Dr Banks

    Only an ungrateful super eagles fan will see nothing in what Rohr has done. Everyone knew where we are when he came and we can all see where he left us, so we as fans (resealable ones) mustn’t wait for future to come before we recognize and appreciate what he has done.. I personally, I appreciate him as much as I felt his time was up as he seems to be unable to beat his previous performances and that’s so glaring.

    Like you acclaimed, You’ll keep on wallowing in misfortune

     
    • Where were you before he came and where did he left you? Can you pls be sincere to yourself? Or you have forgotten where your Africa Guardiol left the team when qualifications for world cup seems impossible even several world class coaches notably Paul Leguen rejected to coach us then, the whole thing was in shamble it was just in 2018 if you have forgotten. This same man you now labelled tacticalless accepted to coach us against all odd and since then we’ve been qualifying with ease. He still left us as qualifying for both Nations cup and WCQ playoff. So tell us where he leftbus,oh cos he lost to Madagascar,CAR, etc tell me which coach who doesn’t lose match? Even Guardiola,Mourinho,Klop etc do lose to a team which one can never imagine. Be constructive in your criticism nobody is pain about Rohr sack after all he will leave one day.

    He said Ozil wanted to use the Covid 19 pay cut to frustrate Arsenal.. Is covid 19 an Arsenal pandemic or a world pandemic?? I mean you are doing it for humanity.. Omo him refuse, him refuse joor which one be trying to frustrate Arsenal. And that was because he is a family man like he said. He gat mouth to feed. so Rohr to would have equally refuse cos he is a grand pa according to you people…Lol.. But the GENERAL was kind enough and you guys are failing to give him some props

  • @Garre thank you my brother. You said it all. Yea we all know Pinnick and most of the NFF are shameless corrupt idiots. The proof is right there. This idiots don’t know how ridiculous they look owing coaches and players their pay while they pay themselves on time. Only a fool and retard of a leader would not feel anything is amiss when they don’t pay their employees. They look like straight bums to the rest of the developed world and no amount of houses, cars and luxury items can wash away the disdain they secretly have for leaders like them. Fools like Pinnick doesn’t know they are just tolerated why when it comes to very important international decisions very few African leaders ideas are taken into consideration

    However Rohr could have navigated all that and still came out heads held high if he hadn’t decided to compromise standards. When you begin to invite Ighalo, Musa, Shehu and co and snub players or bench ones playing in top leagues and champions league then you have definitely lost the plot. No top footballing nation will make a stupid decision like that unless they spot some unreal talent that hasn’t been exposed yet and they see as a very viable wild card or unknown they can use as a joker. That is not the case for the aforementioned players.
    If Rohr had maintained the same standard and integrity he first started with I guarantee you Pinnick won’t even have the gall to fire him now because none of his many homes can hide him from the wrath He would face from Nigerian fans. Fact is if he chose solely based on merit. Played and entertaining, free flowing football with convincing results and let’s say Won the AFCON and reached the semis in the World Cup. Not only will they make history and make a lot of money from the endorsements and gifts they will receive. Their backlog of salaries will definitely have been paid ASAP. Imagine it being in the news that the African AFCON champions are being owed wages? Even international media will pick that story up and their will be nowhere for the NFF and Pinnick to hide. He could have quit then, walked away with head held high and I guarantee you a plethora of suitors throwing money at him to come manage their teams. Rohr failed himself and Nigerians and it is very sad because I actually loved and respected the guy initially Pinnick too.

    I think I truly believe Rohr was never in Nigeria because of the money Hence they are still owing him a backlog of salary.

    He should be given credit for not making the Press his friends on issues surrounding his payment of salary. For once let’s appreciate him. Even after HIS Sack, he still not making noise nor abusive with the NFF.

     
  • Garre 5 months ago

    @Rez ,True said bro.The NFF is nothing but some corrupt bigots. And Pinnick with his cohosts has to vacate the glass house and be proofread for corruption.

    Now have come to realize a lot of forum members are hypocrites. Now rorh is going about, making himself a saint. Saying he was being owed salaries, he took a pay cut, etc etc. Oga you had the option of calling it quits when your payments were not forthcoming, so stop crying victim here. More so, the interview Pinnick made some few weeks ago, about the issues they had on non-payment of salaries. Hope many can go back and watch the interview on why his salary could not be paid. But you were the only coach allowed to working from Europe, and you only come down when there were games to be played. Not until that decision was reversed. So don’t come here and start making us look like fools.
