The Federal Government has directed the Nigeria Football Federation to call Super Eagles’ Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr, to order and ensure he performs his duties optimally.
Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, who was surprised that Rohr was not present with the home-based Super Eagles team when he visited on Tuesday evening wondered why Rohr will discriminate the class of Nigerians to coach in the team.
The minister said, “Gernot Rohr was employed by Nigerians, therefore, he should not discriminate against those he wants to coach. Both home-based and foreign-based players exhibit great talents and they all must be respected and treated well. NFF must call him to order and ensure he abides by the contract he signed.”
Prior to the commencement of Super team B camp ahead of Mexico friendly clash a few days ago, serving national technical director Austin Eguaveon, was drafted by NFF to coach the home-based players, a development that has unsettled the country’s football community
