The NFF will not meddle in the affairs of the German tactician especially on who to invite to the Super Eagles including the ex-captain

Nigeria Football Federation General Secretary, Mohammed Sanusi says Gernot Rohr has the final say on the decision to recall goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama to the Super Eagles.

His reaction trails the divided views about the German tactician’s move to bring back the former skipper following Nigeria’s qualification for the 2018 Fifa World Cup after Zambia win in Uyo.

While some feel his return will add strength to the goalkeeping department ahead of Russia 2018, others think it could stir a captaincy row with John Obi Mikel.

“The NFF does not interfere in the choice of players or goalkeepers for the national teams,” Sanusi told Guardian.

“We gave Rohr the free hand to pick whoever he feels capable of playing in the Super Eagles. I won’t say we are in support of his decision to bring back Enyeama neither will I say we are against it. Rohr’s decision is final as far as such issue is concerned.”

Enyeama pulled the curtain on his international career, 13 years after making his debut for the Super Eagles after falling out with former coach Sunday Oliseh.
