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.
The report alleged that CSKA Moscow forward Ahmed Musa and Gent’s Moses Simon joined the DW Sports Management, few months after Rohr visited them at their clubs.
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.
