Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, has pointed out two occasions he could have lost his job in the past.

According to him, he made a pact with the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), to qualify for both the 2018 World Cup and 2019 Africa Cup of Nations or be sacked.

In the two instances, Rohr qualified with a game to spare.

The German is now confident enough, to agree such terms with the NFF going forward.

“Like I did in my first contract; I stated if I don’t qualify for the 2018 World Cup my contract is finished and I accepted it. I am happy that we qualified with a match to spare then.

“I also accepted in the extension of my contract after we lost our first qualifying match at home to visiting South Africa in the 2019 AFCON qualifiers that if I don’t qualify this team for the AFCON finals in Egypt, the NFF can sack me. I am also happy to say that we qualified before the last qualifying match was played.

“I accepted all the time these challenges. I believe for me and my employers this should be the same for the future,” Rohr told SportingLife.
