FIFA May Ban Nigeria If Gernot Rohr Is Sacked Without Due Process – Senate Committee On Sports

Published

on

Senator Obinna Ogba, the Chairman, Senate Committee on Sports and Youth Development, has said FIFA may sanction Nigeria if Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr is sacked without the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) carrying out due process.

Rohr’s sack calls increased after the team struggled to earn a draw against Cape Verde in their last group game of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.

Although Nigeria qualified for the world cup play-offs, the performance did not raise good hopes among football fans who believe the team might not make it out of the play-offs of they meet more composed opponents in front of goal.

Senator Ogba has now warned fans calling for the sack of the Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr, to exercise some patience as sacking him without due process could have ramifications

“Yes, so many persons have called for his sack. It needs to be discussed because there was an agreement with the sports operators in football.” He said to The Guardian.

“There is a way you will sack him, and if you don’t pay him certain amount of money, FIFA will ban Nigeria and when they ban us, you will complain.

Why not allow football operators discuss the issues by finding a way out?

“Mind you, part of the agreement is for him to qualify Nigeria for Nations Cup, and he has done that. No matter how he qualified.

“The next thing is the World Cup, and it is still on. For me, I am not Amaju Pinnick, who is the president of NFF.

But I am also a board member, and I can tell you authoritatively that among us, many have asked that he should step aside.

But it is not something you say for saying sake.

“It has to be a discussion, meetings, and so many things have to be taken into consideration. Even if it warrants sacking him, we will sack him, otherwise we allow him be,” he stated.

A number of Belgium players were involved in a dressing bust-up after their shock 2-0 defeat to Morocco at the 2022 World Cup.

According to RTL Sport, Kevin de Bruyne, Jan Vertonghen, and captain Eden Hazard clashed after the match.

Tensions were already high after De Bruyne told reporters before the game that the team was “probably too old” to win the trophy.

Those tensions now appear to have reached boiling point, as the three players let their tempers erupt following the loss.

However, RMC Sport claims that Benzema could still return to the France setup as he returns to full training this week at Real Madrid.

Benzema could be fit enough to take part in the knockout stages of the World Cup.

FIFA rules permit players to return to their squads if they recover from injury if they had initially been named in the tournament squad before being ruled out.
