Super Eagles Senior Players send petition to NFF over future of Rohr
As many as six senior players of the senior national team of Nigeria have voiced their unhappiness to the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) over the delay in making a decision on the future of coach of the team Gernot Rohr.
Rohr has been told that he is no longer in charge of the team in a verbal communication with the NFF over two weeks ago but an official notification as well as fulfilling the terms of the termination is holding back his departure.
With two weeks to the start of camping for the Africa Cup of Nations, the players are concerned that the team has no clear direction on who is in charge for the tournament which starts in a month’s time.
They are expected to win the tournament after finishing third in 2019 but the impasse over who will manage the team is threatening to derail their ambition of lifting the trophy.
Already they have made their feelings known to the NFF who have in turn assured them that a decision on the who will lead the team to the tournament will be made in earnest.
