Ex FIFA and CAF executive member Amos Adamu has criticised the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) for appinting Gernot Rohr as the new handler of the Nigeria’s senior men national team.

Gernot was appointed the technical adviser of the Super Eagles and signed a  two-year contract that will reportedly pay him $47,000 a month to lead Nigeria through the 2018 World Cup qualifiers .

Adamu, a member of the organizing committee for the 2010 South Africa World Cup and an Executive Committee member of CAF and FIFA before he was banned said Franco-German coach, Rohr does not have the pedigree to handle the Super Eagles and will lead the team to failure.

“He does not have the pedigree, I don’t know him,” Adamu told Hot FM Abuja. For now, we do not have a coach. He will just damage us and then he will leave.”

Adamu also questioned how the coach was recruited by the NFF and said he doesn’t expect NFF president Amaju Pinnick to resign despite the clamour for him to do so .

It is not in our culture to resign even if it is the right thing to do, He should take responsibility for his action, 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.”
