Gernot Rohr is said to be truly considering his position as head coach of the Nigerian national team and may tender his resignation as right on time next week when he meets with the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) in Morocco amid the CAF outing.
The Franco-German tactician is said to be very bitter at the recriminations he has received from particular sections of the Nigerian football fraternity after the loss of the team at home to South Africa last month.
Ben Television understands Sources close to him disclose that he is very frustrated at what he sees as ‘meddling’ in his work by the powerful Technical Committee of the Nigeria Football Federation which seems to be making moves to curtail his power and hold on the team and impose measures that he deems unnecessary.
‘There was a showdown meeting between Rohr and the Technical Committee after the South Africa loss, after which the Committee recommended certain things including vetting the list of players invited, and injecting new Technical staff into the team, which the coach frowned upon,’ our source stated.
‘The Committee refuted this and claimed that there was no truth in the said moves, including ex-international Garba Lawal who publicly denied knowledge of any such deliberations.
However, all seems not to be well, as the said Committee met again and stood by their position of including people in the Technical group of the ex-Bayern Munich defender, and calling for his actions to be scrutinized and approved prior to release.
Rohr has told friends he can’t work like this and had sought reassurances from the leadership of the NFF failing which he will have no choice than to quit the position.
Nigeria occupies the top of its qualifying group for the World Cup of 2018, and a win in their next game, at home to Cameroon, will all but secure a 6th qualification for the epic global event, scheduled for Russia.
