Nigeria National team Manager, Gernot Rohr has confirmed the acceptance of two clause in his new contract by the Nigeria Football Federation. The German tactician has agreed to be paid in naira and reside in Nigeria but expressed his intent to have few amendment on proposed contract before formal agreement can be reached with the NFF.
“If the answer I give with some little changes in my contract is positive, I will continue,” Rohr disclosed to ESPN
“I never talk about my contract in public, as you know.
“But I heard like everybody what was said by President (Amaju) Pinnick, that I have to accept to be paid in naira, and I have to be resident in Nigeria. I agree to these two things, and even I agree to have a lower salary.
“I am not doing my job for money. I am doing my job because I like it. Because we have built a team like you know, and money is not the most important. But I also have to look after my assistants.
“I accept because I think that my mission in Nigeria is not finished yet, and I know very well my players. I know very well the officials. We are now just like a family, and I think it is good to continue especially in this period now where it is difficult to change, to travel, to see new people.”
Rohr added: “I want to work free in all my responsibilities.
“All I can say is that we are discussing in a good spirit with NFF. They sent me the proposal, I sent my answer. There are some little things to discuss about, and then we will see. Everything can be discussed. They have my answer and now I will wait for the proposal coming back.”
