Sports minister Sunday Dare has spoken about the future of Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr, insisting both his office and the NFF will take a decision in the best interest of Nigeria football.
Speculations have continued to rage over the future of Rohr, but the NFF have maintained he has not been sacked.
Dare said he has met with the NFF to forge the way forward on the matter.
“The meeting with the NFF was to review developments around the coach and also around the issues that have dominated the public space since we played Cape Verde,” said the sports minister.

“It is within a couple of days before we will come to a decision.
“We don’t want to be stampeded, the NFF have a responsibility. They also have experts they will consult and they will check what is needed to be checked and then come back finally with a decision, which I believe at the end of the day will serve the best interests of our football development.”
He added: “We shall be properly guided by history, particularly what happened in the past. We know the history of Nigerian football and the history of coaches.
“We don’t want to make mistakes made in the past, but we want to make sure that whatever we do this time will be based on factuality and on best practices for the interest of our football development.”
