Let me put it in this manner, Gernot Rohr is a buddy. I satisfied him a few times through Amaju Pinnick, I think our football is not going anywhere with all the clauses that were signed with him.

” If (Sunday) Oliseh had such provisions he would work tirelessly. Clemence Westerhof never ever had such and he is one the most effective coaches we had. You heard Emmanuel Amuneke stating he can’t be an assistant to him.

” Our coach shouldn’t wait until there is a match prior to he begins reaching out to gamers. He ought to search and get homegrown gamers that will play always.

” It’s not simply awaiting 100 percent foreign players. We are not there yet at all. Even Fanny Amun is still more successful than Rohr.”

Rohr took charge of the three-time African champions in August 2016 and led them to a third-place finish at the 2019 African Cup of Nations – after the team had actually missed out on back to back tournaments in 2015 and 2017.
