NFF officials interfered too much in players’ selection ..It was difficult to work in these conditions – Gernot Rohr

Sacked Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr has alleged that officials of the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) were always interfering in his players selection for matches.

In a chat with ESPN on Thursday December 16, Rohr disclosed that it was difficult to work in these conditions as he recalled how he stood his ground.

He said;

“I know that all Nigerians are passionate about football, and everybody has his own favourite for this. And I understand that everybody wants to see their favourite players. What is true is that perhaps I didn’t follow the suggestions or the advice of the officials to invite certain players.

“That is possible because I wanted to do the choice with my technical staff and not with people from outside the team. I got a lot of suggestions, but I always wait. I understand that the officials want to do well — everybody wants to bring in his advice, his opinion — but in the end, it was too much, and it was difficult to work in these conditions.”
