On Monday, the President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Mr Amaju Pinnick, has dismissed allegation that the Super Eagles Manager, Gernot Rohr rejected friendly games with Chile and Morocco.
Pinnick has made this known in a chat with newsmen in Lagos, saying that the decision of the coach on friendly games for the team was agreed on based on tactical and technical reasons and that the team had already sealed the friendly games it would play.
He said: “Most countries are playing three games before the world cup but the super eagles are playing five and care must be taken not to tire out the players before the world cup kicks off.
“We are taking on Poland and Serbia on March 23 and 27 respectively, Congo on May 28, England on June 2 and Czech Republic on June 6.
“There are so many considerations before a team can take on friendly matches. The NFF did not interfere and will not interfere in issues of selections and matches by the coach.”
“The coach wanted a typical African traditional style of pay. Morocco and Chile has never been in the picture for the friendly games.
