Rumours of the sacking of Gernot Rohr by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) made rounds on social media no thanks to the comment of the coach after a meeting with the technical committee of the NFF.
Rohr had a meeting with the Chris green lead Technical committee of the NFF to discuss the fall out from Nigeria’s 0-2 loss to South Africa in the AFCON 2019 Qualifiers played in Uyo.
According to Green stringent conditions have been given to the coach regarding how players get call up to the national team and his list will also be submitted to the technical committee for vetting before it is released in a press conference.
The Franco-German coach came out of the meeting visibly angry and when some journalists present at the premises of the NFF sort to hear from the coach, Rohr claimed he has been sacked before exiting the NFF premises.
However it turned out to be a joke used by the manager to evade the potential questions he would have faced from the journalist who were waiting for him to say a thing or two after his meeting with the Chris Green lead technical committee.
