    But Why despite all the evidence against Guinea fielding overaged player against Nigeria, CAF still threw away our protests. Na waoooo.

      Because nobody respects Nigeria and often, we do not know how to lodge those kinds of appeals because quacks are in positions of admin and management at NFF. Imagine an NFF led by Amaju Pinnick reinstating fraudulent and bribe-taking Salisu Yusuf as Super Eagles and U-23 team coach.

      Unlike Nigeria,Cameroon won their own appeal and argument were reinstated back into the tournament. Nigeria deserved to play the tournament but Salisu Yusuf with his rotten teeth would have taken the team to the tournament and still embarrassed us.

      Nigeria’s current football woes are caused by just the person of Amaju Pinnick and his band of rogues.

    Gernot Rohr Reveals What He Will Earn As Benin Republic Coach

    Sampson Adedeji

    Newly appointed Cheetah of Benin Republic head coach Gernot Rohr has revealed the key part of his contract, BSNSports.com.ng reports.

    Rohr was relieved of his duty as the coach of the Super Eagles in late 2021 despite qualifying Nigeria for the 2022 African Cup of Nations and the playoff rounds of the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

    The Franco-German was appointed as the coach of the Benin Republic a few weeks and he was unveiled on Friday.

    During his first press conference on Friday, Rohr confirmed the term of his contract and salary.

    “The contract is for 3 years, I will earn half of what I earned in Nigeria because I don’t come for money.

    You have to be reasonable, and humble and I want to set an example so that we are more comfortable asking the same things of others”, he said.

    Benin Republic will face Amavubi of Rwanda in matchdays 3 and 4 of the 2023 African Cup of Nations qualifier in March.
