Gernot Rohr laments over sack; calls it ‘frustrating’

Gernot Rohr can’t hide his disappointment following his sacking as Super Eagles head coach weeks ahead of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon, reports Completesports.com.

The 68-year-old was dismissed by the Nigeria Football Federation(NFF) on Sunday as a result of poor performances and lack of organization.

“It’s a huge frustration, but I don’t want to argue, it’s not my style,” he told AFP.

“I’m convinced that they will have a very good AFCON because the team is in place and this very united group is ready for the challenges that awaits it.”

He also admitted it will be tough to cope with his exit from the job. “I’m going to have a hard time doing without these great players and this very united staff, but the environment is not always favourable, we cannot control everything,” Rohr said.

Gernot Rohr was appointed Super Eagles head coach in August 2016 and had a contract with Nigeria until December 2022. He led Nigeria to the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia and guided the team to third at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

Rohr has been replaced by former Super Eagles coach and player Augustine Eguavoen, who coached the team from 2005 to 2007 and on an interim basis in 2010.
