Gernot Rohr Makes new Demands as he plans to keep working with NFF. Head Coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, has insisted that the only way he would go on a refresher course with Bayern Munich, is if the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) outlines the refresher programmes for local coaches.
The NFF President, Amaju Pinnick, recently disclosed that Rohr would be heading to Germany on attachment with the Bundesliga champions, to learn about the latest innovations in football management.
But Rohr has now said that his decision to go for the refresher course, depends on if his assistant coaches who are mostly Nigerians, have the same chance.
“Yes, it is a good idea from President Pinnick I think because every coach regardless of the experience you have needs to go on refresher courses almost all the time to learn latest trends in coaching.
“I want to be better than I am and my going to Bayern Munich is to know how the technical crew is doing in the domestic league and in the CAF Champions League.
“I am German and French also. I have had a look at situations in a club like Lyon, Bordeaux, Paris Saint Germain and even Bayern Munich also before now.
“But it will be good for me to refresh it with another opportunity with Bayern Munich.
“I, however, feel that this opportunity shouldn’t be for me alone but that it should be for other coaches in Nigeria who are working with the national teams.
“I don’t believe that I know it all already and I am happy that it is President Pinnick’s idea but this programme shouldn’t be for me alone.
“There should be supplementary programmes for our assistant coaches also and for young coaches like Victor Agali who is having is a diploma in German.
“I don’t know when I will start yet. We have to wait if this association continues. My decision is not made yet. I need a few periods of rest to think about it.
“We will see but if it will continue, I have to start the programme immediately and it must be with the other coaches too to make them better,” Rohr told SportingLife.
