Nigerian Football Federation sacked Gernot Rohr at the head of the Super Eagles less than one month ahead of the next AFCON in Cameroon. And the then former Super Eagles coach has expressed his frustration further to his dismissal on Sunday.
The German gaffer is the longest-serving Super Eagles handler after guiding the team for five years and four months.
Some of the reasons given by NFF boss Amaju Pinnick for Rohr’s sacking include indiscipline and the penchant for Rohr’s team to struggle to win matches.

While Rohr has refused to join issues with the football administrator, the 68-year-old has pointed out that he worked with a united group of players.
Rohr confessed that the Super Eagles are a great side. And it would be difficult for him to live without them.
“It’s a huge frustration. But I don’t want to argue. It’s not my style.” Rohr told AFP, as per RFI.
“(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 await it.
“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 had handled the national teams of Gabon, Niger, and Burkina Faso before he was appointed the Super Eagles coach 64 months ago.
