Super Eagles head coach, Gernot Rohr.

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has debunked the alleged sack of Super Eagles head coach, Gernot Rohr.

NFF made this known,on Thursday, through the federation’s Assistant Director, Media, Ademola Olajire.

Olajire insisted that it’s only after a board meeting of the NFF and a signed statement released that Rohr’s sack could be authenticated.

“I’m not aware of Rohr’s sack because there are procedures for doing things at the federation.

“Before such a decision could be taken, there will be a meeting of the NFF board and a release issued to the public.

“As for now, I’m not aware of the sack. The online platform you claimed reported the story cannot announce his sack without confirmation from the NFF,” Olajire told Sportingsun.

Reports had emerged online on Thursday morning that the NFF sacked Rohr following Nigeria’s World Cup qualifier 1-1 draw with Cape Verde.

Rohr was appointed head coach of the Super Eagles in August 2016.

The German tactician led the team to a third-place finish at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

His conservative approach and Super Eagles’ uninspiring performances have been heavily criticised by the media and supporters.
