The Super Eagles Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr, may be in the dug-out for the last time, after Nigeria’s second leg clash against Sierra Leone on Tuesday, Page 36 learnt.
His fate may have been sealed on Friday night, after a meeting was held following the Super Eagles’ shambolic performance, which saw them throw away a four-goal lead to draw with the Leone Stars, at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, in Benin City, the Edo State capital.
Page 36 gathered that a visibly disappointed Sunday Dare, the Minister of Youth and Sports Development, had a meeting with Amaju Pinnick, the President of the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, and the Super Eagles, at Eterno Hotel, after the game.
He demanded a Technical Review Report on how the team threw away a four-goal advantage, after starting like a house on fire.
A source said: “It will be a miracle, if Rohr is not sacked, after the reverse fixture in Freetown on Tuesday.”
“The country of football talents cannot be disgraced like this”, a disappointed Dare told the meeting, according to the source.
Before Rohr’s contract extension talks, the Sports Minister was accused of trying to get another Coach, with a better technical depth.
The NFF handed Rohr a two-and-a-half-year contract extension on May 20, 2020.
