Rohr Reveals Major Contract Demand To Continue As Super Eagles Manager

Super Eagles manager Gernot Rohr has listed his most important consideration as he negotiates an extension to his contract with the national team.

Rohr who has been in charge of the three-time African champions since 2016 has less than three months left on his existing $55,000-per-month deal.

Talks over a two-year extension have lingered although NFF president Amaju Pinnick recently revealed that the former Gabon manager will receive an offer in the coming days.

Pinnick, however, said the contract will come with stringent non-negotiable demands which include stipulations that Rohr must live in Nigeria, earn in naira and “nurture” domestic players to realise their ambition of international football.

Speaking in an Instagram Live interview session with ESPN journalist Colin Udoh, Rohr suggested he would have no problems with the new terms but revealed a condition of his own.

The former Bordeaux manager said his major demand is the freedom to work without interference and believes his straightforward demands will not lead to drawn-out negotiations with the Nigeria Football Federation.

“I am waiting for the proposal,” Rohr said. “Things could be very very easy because I don’t want more money, I don’t want more bonus. I don’t want anything special.

“I only want to work free like I could with success in the past.”
