Gernot Rohr has point the finger of blame on Amaju Pinnick for Super Eagles failure to qualify for the World cup in Qatar.

Former Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr has put the blames on Amaju Pinnick for the national team failure to qualify for the World cup.

The German was sacked after he guided the Super Eagles to the playoff of the World cup qualifier.

Augustine Eguavoen then led the team against Ghana but crashed out on aggregate following a 1-1 draw in Abuja.

“Pinnick said my dismissal will avert a disaster, but in the end he created the disaster that cost Nigeria the ticket to the World Cup,” Rohr said.

“I regret that I did not take my team to win the World Cup, I regret my players will not be at the World Cup even though they deserve to be there.

“It was not my decision, it was a decision by Pinnick and his board.

“He was punished for this as Nigeria lost the chance to win the AFCON and did not qualify for the World Cup.

“I hope he takes better decisions now as a member of the FIFA Council.”
