2018 World Cup: Rohr denies forcing Super Eagles players to sign contracts
Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr, has denied reports alleging that he forced players of the national team to sign contracts with a particular agency, in exchange for the 2018 World Cup spots.
But the German manager has warned that such a report could land those behind it in big trouble.
“It’s a big joker. I was laughing so much if I had to start these things now at 65. So, let’s laugh. When I returned from the seminar in Russia and made a stop in Moscow to see Ahmed Musa, it was to see him and it was a coincidence that we played there.
“Our players are free to meet the agents they want, and I’m not interested in other things than being the coach of the Eagles. I never did it.
I’m 45 years now in professional football, why should I start it now? These people must be very careful, saying such bad things about our players, especially about Moses Simon; about his private life, very bad allegations. They have to be careful because one day a lawyer will come and they will finish in prison,” Rohr stated on Monday Night Football on SuperSport.
