Nigeria FA offers coach Rohr new contract but with stringent conditions

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has offered Super Eagles boss, Gernot Rohr a brand new contract, but  understands that it will come with stringent conditions.

Rohr on his own part is open to listening to offers from other football associations (FA) from January 1, 2020, but the NFF wants to retain the Franco-German until after the World Cup in 2022.

The new contract terms, , gathered will require that the former Bordeaux player and chief coach “must” live in the country (Lagos or Abuja).

He will also be allowed to travel on vacation only 3 times in a year. Also, the coach will not get an improved pay from his $55,000 per month deal.
The NFF will also ensure, unlike in the past three years where he earned wages tax free, that his income will be levied.

All his selections must be approved by the NFF Technical Committee.


Meanwhile, the NFF has also decided that all Nigerian U-17 footballers will surrender economic right to the NFF.

Any player linked to agents will have to choose whether to play for Nigeria or go with their agents. NFF will also sign with players’ parents.

With all these conditions, it is not yet certain if Rohr will accept the new parameters of his contract but in the past, he expressed his desire to continue on the job.
