New Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr is not good enough and he will “damage” Nigeria before walking away from the country, according to ex-FIFA chief Amos Adamu.
Franco-German Rohr has signed a two-year contract that will pay him $47,000 a month to lead Nigeria through the 2018 World Cup qualifiers beginning with an October 3 clash in Zambia.
However, Adamu, who was the sole administrator of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) when the country qualified for their first-ever World Cup in 1994, said Rohr does not have the pedigree to handle the Eagles and he is doomed to fail.
“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.”
He also questioned how the 63-year-old coach was recruited by the NFF leadership.
Adamu equally said he does not expect NFF president Amaju Pinnick to resign despite the clamour for him to do so on the back of a litany of failures by the various national teams.
“It is not in our culture to resign even if it is the right thing to do,” he said.
“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.”
