Gernot Rohr, Super Eagles boss has laid down three reasons he may decide not to continue as the coach of the Nigerian national team when his contract ends in 2020.

According to him, there were some organizational problems.

He further added that he is not respected and the promises made to him by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) were not fulfilled.

It would be recalled that Nigerian Football Federation President, Amaju Pinnick pledged to send Rohr to Germany on a refresher course with Bayern Munich after Nigeria exited the Africa Cup of Nations, but that obligation had not been effected.

When asked by Mannheimer Morgen if he was interested in renewing his contract, Rohr said: ‘’Yes and no. On the one hand, we have built a good team, the youngest on average in Africa.

‘’On the other hand, there are many things that make daily work difficult: lack of respect, organizational problems, promises are not kept. We will see how it goes on’’.

Rohr further confirmed that some other African countries such as; Morocco, Cameroon, Mali, and Congo had offered him an appointment but had opted to finish his contract term with Nigeria.

The German football tactician added: ‘’Yes. But I love this team and I really wanted to fulfill my contract’’.

Rohr will be leading the Super Eagles to Singapore for an international friendly with five-time world champions Brazil on October 13.
