Reports surfaced on Thursday that Rohr had been relieved of his duties due to the Super Eagles' performance, even though had qualified for the 2022 FIFA World Cup play-offs.

However, the NFF rubbished claims that the German tactician has been sacked but they have revealed they are studying a report from the Technical Committee.

“The Board of the NFF is studying the report of the Technical Committee, which it submitted after the match against Cape Verde in Lagos on Tuesday,” NFF President Amaja Pinnick said, according to their social media.

“There are a number of possibilities but we have not taken a decision to sack Gernot Rohr. I want to assure that whatever decision is eventually taken will be one that will please the generality of Nigerians.

“Mr Rohr has a contract with the NFF and there is a procedure for disengagement. If we get to that bridge, both parties will look at the contract and see what has to be done both ways.

“The Super Eagles squad is a national asset and we are just fortunate to be in that space to take decisions. Any decision we take must be what will be acceptable to Nigerians from far and near.”
