Nigerian football deserves better – Sports Minister hints Rohr will be sacked


Nigeria’s Minister of Sports and Youth Development, Sunday Dare, has given the biggest hint yet, that Gernot Rohr could be sacked as head coach of the national team.

This follows the Super Eagles’ failure to beat Sierra Leone over two games in the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

The three-time African champions threw away a four-goal lead at home to draw 4-4, before playing out a goalless draw in Freetown on Tuesday.

It has led to Dare questioning “the suitability and competences” of Rohr.

According to him, Nigerian football “deserves better” and “the needful will be done”.

He tweeted: “The performance of the Super Eagles from their last two matches calls to question the suitability and competences of Technical Adviser, Rohr.

“Nigerian football deserves better.
