Gernot Rohr, the Super Eagles coach, has disclosed that the players will camp in Nigeria ahead of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.

Nigeria has been drawn alongside Egypt, Guinea Bissau, and Sudan in Group D, and Rohr Is hoping to begin camping on December 28, with the Eagles to face Egypt in their opening game on January 11 in Garoua.

Rohr whose future as coach of the team remains in doubt despite guarding the Eagles to the playoff round of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers also wants to play one friendly game before they depart for the tournament.

He also hinted that he may not be there for the tournament.

“My plan is for the team to camp in Nigeria in December and then play a friendly in the country before departing for Cameroon early where we have very good conditions to prepare in Garoua where our team is playing.

“We will be very, very well prepared. We need to be ready for the first match against Egypt in Garoua.”

“But let us see if I can still decide if we are preparing. We will see.”

Rohr who is currently being owed two months’ salary by the Nigerian Football Federation has recorded 28 wins, 13 draws and 13 defeats in the 54 games he has been in charge of the team.

Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel has boasted that now is the best time for the Blues to beat Manchester United as they meet this weekend at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea welcome United to Stamford Bridge on Sunday, November 28, on a run of 10 games without defeat in all competitions, having won nine of those and kept seven clean sheets.

Tuchel believes Manchester United can never be discounted, either in a match or the wider Premier League race despite their current struggles and the club’s recent sacking of Ole Gunnar Solksjaer.

 

You can see it either way, in the end we will not lose too many minutes thinking about this, but we will give all our energy and focus on our squad and what we want to do right, Tuchel told TribalFootball.

“We only have one game with Michael Carrick in charge to focus on and to analyse. Of course we have some individual behaviour and some group behaviour that we think we can see as patterns and want to prepare our team for it.

“On the other side it is always the best moment to play against Manchester United because we are up for the big challenges and we want to be out there to play on the highest level, to prove ourselves and to prove a point.

 

We just came from a tough match and there’s the next one, this is where we are, where we love to be, and we get challenged on the highest level again on Sunday.”

FIFA may ban Nigeria if Gernot Rohr is sacked without due process – Senate committee on sports

Senator Obinna Ogba, the Chairman, Senate Committee on Sports and Youth Development,  has said FIFA may sanction Nigeria if Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr is sacked without the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) carrying out due process.

Rohr’s sack calls increased after the team struggled to earn a draw against Cape Verde in their last group game of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.

Although Nigeria qualified for the world cup play-offs, the performance did not raise good hopes among football fans who believe the team might not make it out of the play-offs of they meet more composed opponents in front of goal.

 

Senator Ogba has now warned fans calling for the sack of the Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr, to exercise some patience as sacking him without due process could have ramifications

“Yes, so many persons have called for his sack. It needs to be discussed because there was an agreement with the sports operators in football.” He said to The Guardian.

 

There is a way you will sack him, and if you don’t pay him certain amount of money, FIFA will ban Nigeria and when they ban us, you will complain. Why not allow football operators discuss the issues by finding a way out?

 

“Mind you, part of the agreement is for him to qualify Nigeria for Nations Cup, and he has done that. No matter how he qualified.

“The next thing is the World Cup, and it is still on. For me, I am not Amaju Pinnick, who is the president of NFF. But I am also a board member, and I can tell you authoritatively that among us, many have asked that he should step aside. But it is not something you say for saying sake.

“It has to be a discussion, meetings, and so many things have to be taken into consideration. Even if it warrants sacking him, we will sack him, otherwise we allow him be,” he stated.
