Ex-Super Eagles midfielder Daniel Amokachi has criticized the Nigeria Football Federation NFF, for how they’ve handled the new contract of Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr.
Rohr was hired by the NFF in 2016, as a replacement for Sunday Oliseh who resigned from the Super Eagles job following irreconcilable differences with the NFF.
In February 2020, Rohr put pen to paper for a contract extension which will keep in charge of the Eagles until after the 2022 FIFA World Cup, and should the German avoid sack before that period, he will become one of the longest-serving coaches in Nigeria.
However, Rohr came under increasing pressure from some sections of the media and ex-internationals, after his team failed to win any of the four matches they played in 2020, including the disappointing
4 – 4 home draw against minors Sierra Leone. Amokachi who earned 44 caps for Nigeria said the Amaju Pinnick led NFF board made a huge blunder hiring the Franco-German in the first place when Nigeria has capable hands that can thinker the team.
