The Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare has come out to say that there are clauses in Gernot Rohr’s new contract that gives the NFF the right to sack him if he underperforms.
Dare recently revealed that the German coach’s contract was actually renewed to make him prove himself.
According to him, the Super Eagles team is not stuck with Rohr because it was only fair to let him continue with his job when he accepted NFF’s conditions.
He added that even if the country brings in the best coach in the world, the same standard would have to be obeyed, else the manager would be fired.
His words, “For Rohr to have come in, he must have been world standard
“With the conditions we have put in, I think it’s only fair to let him continue if he has accepted, but then again, we are going to warn him [Rohr] to a great standard of responsibility, a greater depth in our football and a greater level of success.
“In that contract, there are points that if he does not meet the desired standard, we can terminate his contract. So we are not stuck with him. He has an opportunity to prove himself.
“Even if we bring in the best coach in the world, we will set the same standard for him, and if those expectations are not met, we will show him the door.
“We will let this play out, he has also made promises that things will get better and I think we will just wait and see what happens eventually.”
