Nigeria’s Sports Minister Solomon Dalung has denied any official knowledge of the appointment of Gernot Rohr as the new technical adviser of the Super Eagles.
Earlier in August, Rohr signed a two-year deal with the NFF to head Super Eagles technical team.
But the minister has said the NFF had not officially informed him of Gernot Rohr’s appointment yet.
“We have a German-born coach but that is not official to me anyway, because I have only been reading about it online.
“But they will also present him officially when they have concluded all the arrangements of engaging him.
“However, I will continue to maintain that we need to develop our own.
“There is no better way of making progress than to develop our own indigenous coaches,’’ he told NAN
