I’m Ready To Sign New Eagles Deal, Says Rohr

Super Eagles manager, Gernot Rohr, has said he is ready to sign a new deal with the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).
Rohr said he will accept the new offer because he wants to complete his job with the team.
Amaju Pinnick, NFF president, two days ago, revealed the stringent conditions in the new deal prepared by the federation for the Franco-German.
According to Pinnick, the conditions include that Rohr must be ready to live in Nigeria, to monitor local players, and he will be paid in local currency, as against the previous arrangement.
However, despite the conditions, the coach said he will accept the offer.

“I want to finish my work in Nigeria, I want to go to the next AFCON and World Cup, which means we must continue working together,” he told former Eagles media officer, Colin Udoh, in an Instagram live video on Wednesday, according to www.brila.net.

“I want to show my players and employers that I have the motivation to continue. I cannot speak about what we said in the meeting in February because it’s confidential.

“I don’t want more money, I don’t want more bonuses, I don’t want anything special. I only want to work as free as I could. I have to speak with my assistants because I have to pay them all from my salary. I also have to speak to them.”

The 66-year-old added that staying in Nigeria is not a problem, insisting that he has lived more in the country in the last three years.

“All I can say is that I am always in Nigeria, most of my time. It’s been three years since I’ve been in Nigeria.”

“I spend time in Nigeria but, all my players are in Europe and it is only one (Ikechukwu Ezenwa) that’s in Nigeria. I hear lots of things about it on social media, TV, and newspapers, about what has been said. But I cannot comment on it. I have to see my players in their clubs and meet their coaches, watch their matches and communicate with them.
