Ademola Olajire, the Director of Communications for the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), claims he is unaware that Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr has been fired.
Olajire made the statement in response to a report published on Thursday claiming that the German coach had been fired.
Following the Eagles’ lacklustre performance in Tuesday’s 1-1 draw with Cape Verde, which earned them a spot in next year’s play-off, Rohr has come under fire.
Football fans and stakeholders have called for his dismissal as a result of his bad performance.
In response, Olajide stated that he was unaware of Rohr’s dismissal.
“I’m not aware of Rohr’s sack because there are procedures for doing things at the federation. Before such a decision could be taken, there will be a meeting of the NFF board and a release issued to the public.
“As for now, I’m not aware of the sack. The online platform you claimed reported the story cannot announce his sack without confirmation from the NFF.”
