Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr, has stated that he is not scared of getting fired by the Nigeria Football Federation from his current position if his team fails to perform to their satisfaction at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

When I was coming to Nigeria, I signed that the job is done if I don’t qualify for the World Cup, the second time I also signed that the job will be done if I don’t qualify for the AFCON and the third time I agreed that the job is done if we don’t do well at the AFCON,’ Rohr told reporters.

‘You can only stay in a country if the results are good, you have to go if it isn’t. Some coaches won’t but I agreed.’

Africa Today News, New York understands that Nigeria have been paired alongside seven-time AFCON champions, Egypt as well as Guinea-Bissau and Sudan in Group D.

Rohr led Nigeria to a third spot finish at the last AFCON in Egypt and will hope to go a step higher next year in neighbouring Cameroon.
