Rohr’s Fate Will be Decided Next Week― Minister

Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr, may learn his fate in the next one week, going by the hint given by the minister of youth and sports development, Sunday Dare.

Appearing at the ministerial press briefing organised by the presidential media team at the presidential villa, Abuja on Thursday, he said his ministry will follow due process in dealing with matters concerning the national football players and the technical staff.

He said he will wait for the report from the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) on the performance of the team in the recent matches, review it before taking necessary action.

Dare had been asked to confirm whether the national team gaffer had been sacked or asked to resign.

While noting that he could not speak much on the matter, he assured that the NFF report will be ready by next week, saying that the ministry will act based on its content.

But he vowed that the Super Eagles must qualify for Qatar 2022 as everything will be done to ensure that.
