The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) president, Amaju Pinnick has come out to say that there is no reason to sack Gernot Rohr right now.
He recently revealed that Rohr has actually improved the stats of the Super Eagles since he took charge of the three-time African champions.
According to him, no one is pleased with what happened against Sierra Leone in both matches, but it is not enough reason to dismiss the coach since Nigeria is still top of the Nations Cup group after four matches.
He added that it does not matter how emotional and disappointed the fans are, the facts say Rohr deserves to keep his job.
His words, “Nobody is happy about what happened against Sierra Leone in both matches,”
“But it is not enough to sack the coach because his team is still top of the Nations Cup group after four matches.
“His statistics speak volume for him, so on what indexes do we want to sack him considering the contract recently signed by both parties.
“No matter how emotional and disappointed the fans are, there’s no basis to sack him now and he deserves to keep his job.
“When you look at his performance, where he has won 29 matches, drew 14 and lost 10, you can say that is enough to back him.
“Yes, the performance in the last two games has not gone down well with some people, but we need to be professional, honest and respectful in how we analyse things.”
