2018 World Cup: We Need Nigerians Support and Not Salaries Distraction – Rohr

By Augustine Akhilomen

Super Eagles technical adviser, Gernot
Rohr has called on Nigerians to show total confidence and support for
the team in their quest to qualifying for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

The
German tactician, who was not pleased with media reports over his
unpaid salaries by his employees (Nigeria Football Federation),
disclosed that the technical crew are more concern on picking the sole
ticket for the World Cup than just dwelling on their unpaid wages.

The
three-time Africa champions top group B with six points and will face
an uphill task against the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon on August 28 in
Uyo.

“We are in very good spirit in our team,” Rohr told the
nff.com. “We are a happy family with solidarity and harmony amongst
ourselves – the players and staff. The Management, backroom staff and
the players have a common focus – to qualify Nigeria for the 2018 FIFA
World Cup and the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations. And I would like every
Nigerian to share in this focus and stop giving negative reports.”

“I
have a direct contract with the Nigeria Football Federation. I do not
discuss my terms and conditions in the media. I have confidence that the
NFF signed a contract and that they will honour all terms of the
contract. I am still working, so that must mean something,” he
concluded.
