Rohr has just two months left on his contract.
In an interview with ESPN, the 66 -year – old said he was ready to accept the new condituons in his contract .
“ I never talk about my contract in public , as you know, ” Rohr told ESPN.
“ But I heard like everybody what was said by ( NFF) president ( Amaju ) Pinnick , that I have to accept to be paid in naira , and I have to be resident in Nigeria . I agree to these two things , and even I agree to have a lower salary .
“ I am not doing my job for money . I am doing my job because I like it. Because we have built a team like you know , and money is not the most important . But I also have to look after my assistants .
“ I accept because I think that my mission in Nigeria is not finished yet , and I know very well my players . I know very well the officials . We are now just like a family , and I think it is good to continue especially in this period now where it is difficult to change , to travel, to see new people . ” Rohr added that he wanted a conducive atmosphere to manage the Eagles .
He added , “ I want to work free in all my responsibilities , independence as a coach who is responsible for results . It is always good to be sure you can do a job with confidence and be free in the choice of good players .
“ We have a good relationship with Pinnick , with ( NFF vice -president) Seyi Akinwunmi and with ( League Management Company boss ) Shehu Dikko , so I think we can find an agreement . There is no big problem to change .
“All I can say is that we are discussing in a good spirit with NFF. They sent me the proposal, I sent my answer. There are some little things to discuss , and then we will see . Everything can be discussed . They have my answer and now I will wait for the proposal coming back . ”
