Ministry of Youth and Sports Development has urged the Nigerian Football Federation to take a bold decision on Gernot Rohr if the Super Eagles downward slide continues.
The Eagles recent draws against Sierra Leone in a 2021 Africa Cup of Nation qualifier has put to question the technical competence and commitment of Rohr to the team a top official in the ministry revealed.
“ The Eagles is Nigeria’ s biggest football brand which cannot be toyed with . If Rohr fails to meet the expectations of millions of Nigerians, then we will have no choice but to do the needful.
“ The NFF must be ready to take the bull by the horns instead of hastily defending Rohr.
“ This poor result trend should not repeat itself, otherwise we shall review the entire team set up .
“ The Super Eagles represent more than 200 million people, they wear our national colour and sing the national anthem.
“ They don ’ t represent any individuals or federation , but the entire country .
“ The aspirations of millions of Nigerians cannot be mortgaged by an individual or small group of people .”
The sports ministry ’ s new position is coming on the trail of NFF President Amaju Pinnick ’ s defence of Rohr
