Amaju Pinnick has hinted that a fresh contract for Super Eagles coach, Rohr, will be ready in one week.

Pinnick, however, put a caveat that the contract will only be renewed if Rohr accepts the new terms of engagement.
The NFF boss disclosed that the new terms inserted in his contract include that: he must live in Nigeria, be ready to be paid in naira and watch league matches with a view to picking players that could be nurtured to become international stars.
“In one week, Rohr will get his contract, he should study his contract and come back to us. So, give and take, within seven days, he should have his contract,” Pinnick stated in an interview on Arise TV ‘Morning Show’ on Monday.
“The only thing that can impede the contract is if he refuses some of our new clauses in the contract.
“He should live in Nigeria and go around to watch the league matches and see how to nurture the players.
“He has to be paid in naira, we will pay him naira equivalent of the dollars, we have to strengthen our currency. If he’s able to accept, we have a deal.”
