2022 WCQ: Super Eagles Need Better Escorts Ahead Liberia Game -Rohr

2022 WCQ: Super Eagles Need Better Escorts Ahead Liberia Game -Rohr

Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr has appealed to the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to provide maximum security for the team ahead of this weekend’s 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Liberia.

Nigeria will host Liberia at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Surulere, Lagos before facing Cape Verde three days later.

Speaking with Elegbete TV in an interview, Rohr says the pitch and traffic situation might make his players not achieve desired target of a win.

“We are happy to play in Lagos but there are two things that must be better. The first thing is for the traffic, we cannot spend one and half hour from the hotel to the stadium. It’s too long.

“We need better escorts, we need better organization and the roads are full. This is one problem. The other problem is infrastructure, they had a good work on it but it’s not yet on a higher international level.

“Our players are used to playing on very good grass. It’s still not the case. So they are working a lot. We are happy to play on a very good grass. But It’s still not the case. They should play in the best infrastructure like they have in other countries.”

  • Ready-made excuses again Mr. Rohr. Talk less to the press. You know this nff people are irresponsible before you got the Job or got contract renewal. Face their foolishness squarely and work on your players psyche. That was what helped westerhof. Nff has always been an irresponsible organization. Mr. Rohr, Nigerians will not take it lightly with you if we fail to get good results.

    CSN and other media sites just like keeping Rohr on the news just to get traffic. Any news on Rohr leads to debate and such debate is good business for them. They many times even repackage his statements to generate controversy.

    This particular news was in other sites last week, where he said they prefer the stadium in Akwa-ibom to that of Lagos. And the traffic also bad in Lagos.
    But now the reporter has brought it up as if it is a current news and also added he said it will make them not achieve the desired results, which he never said.

    I don’t know why the Nigerian Sports journalists are just out to discredit Rohr and also they make the Naija fans hate him. This is not good for our Sports and National team.

    HAAA GERNOT ROHR THIS IS NOT GERMANY/FRANCE. HERE IN NIGERIA WE ONLY PROVIDE BETTER ESCORT FOR FOLKING LG CHAIRMEN, CANCELLORS.
    OUR ARRANGEMENT HERE IS OPPOSITE OF WHAT AMERICAN/EUROPEAN ARE DOING.
    OUR DEMOCRACY(power for themself,for d family,for d relative) CAN TESTIFY TO THAT.

    For 50 years I’ve heard all Nigeria’s coaches complain about the quality of our pitches If there’s one thing missing in Nigeria’s civilization it’s environmental management. We hate decency.

     
  • Thought the Lagos govt said they have renovated the stadium to FIFA standard not knowing the pitch is still not up to par with what is obtainable in other country with good pitch. Why did we like to celebrate mediocrity in this country? and Sanwoolu was boasting then. The other one in Edo state too, all are just photoshop. Naija matter tire person.
