Former FIFA and CAF executive member Dr. Amos Adamu believes that the New Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr will not make Nigerian football better but rather will destroy it.
Rohr signed a two-year contract with the Nigeria Football Federation on $47,000 (about N18.8m) per month. but Dr. Adamu who was also a former sole administrator of the NFF said in Abuja that it was not worth it.
Adamu however believes that Rohr isn’t worth it, “He does not have the pedigree, I don’t know him. For now, we do not have a coach. He will just damage us and then he will leave.”
Adamu was critical of the NFF and said they didn’t do enough to secure the right man also slamming the present leadership over Nigeria’s inability to qualify for some tournaments.
He fingered NFF leader Amaju Pinnick as the major problem stating that as leader he had to take responsibility, “He should take responsibility for his actions, but it won’t happen. Who will enforce? Who is in that ministry to enforce it?
“We are also suffering from a culture of poverty and so people asking for him to resign will be bought over and before you know it, they will be singing a different song,” said Adamu on Hot Fm Abuja.
