Exclusive: Judge Rohr By His 2021 AFCON Performance Before Sacking Him -Nwosu Tells NFF

Former Nigerian midfielder, Henry Nwosu has called on the Nigerian Football Federation to await the outcome of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations before deciding the fate of Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr.

The German tactician has come under heavy criticisms after nervy performance against Cape Verde, where Nigeria managed a 1-1 draw to qualify for the knockout stages of the qualifiers.

However, with just few weeks to the opening fixture of the bi-annual competition, the 1980 AFCON winner told Completesports.com that it would be a wrong timing for the NFF to sack Rohr.

“To be candid with you, I will tell you that sacking Rohr now may create more fuss in the Super Eagles than what we are seeing at the moment. The NFF must have to be careful in the handling of this issue so that it won’t have direct effect on the performance of the players at the tournament in Cameroon.

“If they (NFF) must have to nail him, then they should wait for the outcome of the Super Eagles performance at the Africa Cup of Nations. The fact that he struggled to qualify the team for the final knockout stages of the qualifier doesn’t make him a bad coach.”

  • Gernot Rohr is a usesless, wannabe, no good fake coach ………… Genort Rohr Keep quiet old man pack your bags and go.. You are useless coach.. Look at what Victor Moses is doing in Europ League and it is Odion you went for, you are a useless coach. Look at how well Dennis is doing and it is Musa and Simon you stick with you are a useless coach.. Look at how well Awoniyi and Sadiq (35 mil rated) are doing and it is old legs you go for + no tactics and we scrapped through. YOU are a useless coach and human being and you should leave immediately

      Idiot, are you more Nigerian than me? what if they call you a fake Nigerian? It isn’t always the way you see it. Coach Rohr in his first attempt won bronze for true Nigerians, qualified the Super Eagles for the World cup with two games to spare. I think there is no need working the adrenaline unnecessarily.

      • @Salami Aminu Stupid NFF Official thunder Fire you dere!1 . So you think we give a damn about Granpapa Rohr who does not want to quietly leave.

        ROhr is a fake Coach and you and your Quota system nonsense need to stop you people are killing our ball with your Grandpapa forming captain there Asshole!!

    • people are saying coach is not good,what about if our present players are not good enough??

      • Our Present players are stronger than ever. Do you think we qualified because of Rohr Loooooooool!!! we qualified because of the goals from the present stars. Osimhen, Iwobi, chukwueze and co.. Look the simple truth is Nigeria can assemble a waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay more formidanle squad than Rohr is assembling, Bros ask yourself What Dennis is doing now is what Ighalo was doing back then only BETTER. now we don’t just have Dennis but we have Osimhen, Awoniyi, Dennis, Victor Moses, Sadiq Umar, you name it. Calvin Bassey, these names can contribute and add much needed fire and competition for the spine of the team.. Bro WHAT IS MUSA DOING IN THAT TEAM WHY IS NO BODY ASKING THAT. When did we have somemany players causing headlines in Europe.. Only a few years ago we were admiring Ivory Coast squad and Senegal now we have Players all over the world that we can assemble a deeper squad than them and Rohr with his selection is hampering us… and you are here asking stupid Questions. Did you know one of Senegals Star player and a player considered as a rising star in England Ismaliah Sarr plays with Dennis and Dennis is now proving more formidable than him at Watford. Sarr is a mainstay in Senegal Why is Dennis not in SE. Is Musa better than SARR. Keep asking yeye questions and fooling yourself

        • Rohr has to drop Musa, Ighalo, Paul Onuachu, Moses Simon and Bench Ekong. This is what Coaches do when players underperform and we have better options yet he keeps flogging a dead horse with them and, sticking to them and their performances are always either the same or worse than their last outing then almost all the time his bluff is called and the players he left out keep causing the headlines after the international break yet will still miss the next Internationals, because rohr likes to cane a dead horse WHAT SORT OF COACHING IS THIS??? RUBBISH. why is he doing this to us. or are these players not Nigerian is Musa more Nigerian than Dennis?? what a load of Rubbish

          And if one More person makes that yeye corrupt comment(Pinnick’s Anthem) that international football is different to Club then that will be very sad

          • @Delis we scrapped through purely on Raw talent, and we might have won by more had we had the right players in place to be called upon. I mean Onuachu for Osimhen what a JOKE the opposing team will lick their fucking Lips. No man Rohr must FUCK OFF NICELY PUT he is tooooo old!!!!!!!

          • Raw Talent will work for Lesser Opposition like CAR, Cape Verde and Lesotho but when you meet the teams in Round of 16 at AFCON or the Knock out in March. then we will need a little bit of tactics and it is clear in that department Rohr is a basket. His Substitutions oh my god, I feel like vomiting thinking about that Cape Verde game!! Rohr in A nutshell!!

        • Is just Mata of time,he always make the wrong mistake in substitution..#He should improve in such aspect too,

  • Gernot Rohr is a fake coach he used to sing My team does not have stars, my team does not have stars, that was his national anthem when he joined which was coincinding with Musa and Ighalo’s mainstay in SE and our young stars today ealry days in SE, Meanining he knows Musa and Ighalo are not star potential, Now he is bringing the same people back and leaving out star potential who are now in their ripening phase. In the shape of Dennis, Awoniyi , Sadiq and co… these guys are showing WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY more potential than Ighalo and Musa ever showed. And now his non stars are the people he is turning to rescue us. Gernot Rohr is a fake coach full of excuses no good will come of himif he stays. Afcon group stage exit is what will happen to SE

  • This man no be ur papa mate oo,? Na so you day insult ur papa?

  • Bolade Anjorin 6 days ago

    Thanks Henry Nwosu, it is the way to go if there’s any sincerity of purpose and going by AFCON’s timetable. My advise for our ex footballers is that, they should come together and share their experiences with the Super Eagle’s coaching crew, visit them in their camp from the 28th of next month, this would go along way to assisting the lads having a better footing in Cameroon. Nothing will be too small especially remembering the fact that victory to the Super Eagles unite Nigerians in no immeasurable way. From Odegbami, Adepoju, Eguaveon, Kanu, Okocha, Finidi, Udeze, Ugbade, Aghahowa, Ikpeba and others, let’s form a unit of advisers for not just the AFCON but the WC-playoffs.

      @Bolade Anjorin, as if you entered my mind. Our SE ex players must contribute their quota, nothing to add, thanks.

      Sane commentary devour of insanity. This can change the tone of the forum for good, Kudos! I also want to thank brother Henry Nwosu being the only former player that has so spoken. If NFF wants to do anything, they should wait till after the cup. God bless Nigeria

  • You see it above the Mice have resurfaced.. All the Detractors and supporters of Rubbish today is your day.. Okay the forum is over to you people!!!!1

    Sack the clueless coach and give us Nigerians even if it’s to test them at the Afcon… Amuneke/Manu/Finidi… think tank trio, then Enyeama/Ikeme as goal keeper trainers. Then get the Super Eagles a good physio, physical trainer who is trained professional physio and instill strict camp rules so we don’t continue to have sex parties… Lastly invite all top performing players this season including Okereke, Dessers, Joel, Simmy, Sadiq,CALVIN Ughelumba, Dennis, Bonke, Kingsley(if he beats his latest injury before mid December and starts complete training again) don’t favour any players or set of players as senior players and see us perform wonders at Afcon once team is picked on merit… on merit means Ahmed Musa, Shehu, Collins, Ekong have to me measured against alternatives to turn up at camp and if found surplus to needs cut loose… When you start using sentiments to pick team and looking at Uche face then failure has started… Why Rohr can’t succeed and muster anyyhing different than the hapless performances he is known for having is because the man lies to himself, comes with an easy-going demeanor but he is extremely stubborn and spiteful to players he does not favour… Bring those coaches mentioned above because they know our players already and know our brand of football and have been there and done that… I am not going to favour hiring any whiteman again because Cisse, Belmadi are doing it and they are not better than the Amuneke, Finidis, Manus of this world… I particularly don’t fancy Rohr anymore because he is not only fraud, quack and clueless… he is also naturally timid and not honest regarding sporting reasons first with his loyal players… Rohr was always in the habit of selecting and favoring players he has agency affiliation with… How do you explain Collins benching Zaidu or even Calvin Bassey(Raw Energy Clean Modern Leftback)? Players who don’t want Rohr sacked are those who know they are lazy and average and another coach will weigh and find them wanting and rip to shreds the egunje relationship they have manage to hold Rohr to all these years… Enough said!

  • The truth is, Nff have corrupt Mr. Rohr, Super eagles won’t creat any impact in 2022 nations cup if Nff and Mr. Rohr continue. We want both Nff and Mr. Rohr to resign and be replace immediately.

  • Larry 6 days ago

    Nothing wrong with allowing Roar to go to the next AFCON if he refuses to resign. But, he should not in anyway be allowed to make decision on players invitation, match day selection, substitution and tactics. Roar has been compromised already and he is only looking for opportunity for the big gifts from his biz-Ighalo, Musa, Ekong, Omeruo and co…
    Good Riddance, Roar needs to step aside..

    “Former Nigerian midfielder, Henry Nwosu has called on the Nigerian Football Federation to await the outcome of the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations before deciding the fate of Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr”.

    If by now you are still believe that Oga Rohr should lead the team to Cameroon, you don’t love your country sir.

    NFF and Oga Rohr are the problem of the Super Eagles.

    Oga Rohr would have gone before now but just because NFF are manipulative people and they have no where to hide their atrocities now, they want to let go of the gaffer.

    It is a shame if Oga Rohr eventually leads Eagles to Cameroon when we have Amunike and other experts available to be in charge.

    We are watching you all very closely. God bless Nigeria!!!

  • De Star 6 days ago

    @Ugo Nwunze ; Your last comment made me laughed; leaving the forum for the Rohr’s sentimental sympathizer because Ikpeba spoke yesterday and Henry Nwosu who by all means deserved our respect and honour going by their pedigree in football matters and their past contributions.

    Far from that , I think by the subsequent negative reactions to Henry Nwosu plead ; you should by now know that no matter how fast lies run , it can never outrun truth. The current development is only orchestrated by Rohr’s business partner NFF, when it appears Sports Minister Dare Sunday is beating them to their game (1) wouldn’t allow the corrupt NFF to honour the crazy fraudulent of 2m severance package for a scam Rohr that ought to be prosecuted along with his corrupt partner NFF, and the subtle attempt to stop NFF in getting another mechanic and pretender like Rohr where they can continue to share their corrupt contract agreement ( when it is glaring no real coach worth of his salt would accept to take eagles Job except we put our fate on the Amunikes , Egbos etc as Algeria , Senegal did it in their countries and the leading teams in the continent at the moment.

    What else that need to be said that have not been said by the football technocrats , progressive patriotic fans and football administrators, particularly the most successful football administrator in the history of Nigerian football ( Oji Kalu) have not said ?

    What is going on is conspiracy , including CSN to test the will of Nigerians ; my only worry is a forgotten Henry Nwosu ( by all standard ,the likes of Nwosu should have been encouraged with good incentives as given not foreign coaches rather than been wasted at home by the corrupt NFF) ; If Henry thought NFF would look at his side for future appointments for another Rohr’s incarnated … good luck for him.

    Give it to Ikpeba, when you read Ikpeba news yesterday, you could have noticed that , Ikpeba was given an unwilling market to promote , or why would Ikpeba be pleading for Rohr and simultaneously exposing Oga Rohr by pleading with NFF to help Rohr by taking the coach’s basics aspect of controlling his players and maintaining discipline?

    What could have made Rohr to be so disdained to have lost control of his supposed young players , other than corruption and glaring technical deficiencies ( up till this moment ; no single player spoke in favour or to defend Rohr ; retired Igahalo that spoke yesterday, rather than defending Rohr , he would rather expose him the more , only that he was silent on the exchange of bribe )

    Rohr and his promoter and only delaying the inevitable sack ; there is no hiding place for him ; he is a proven scam and mechanic

  • Hassan Tia 6 days ago

    Rhor has been coaching Super Eagles for six years,he hasn’t put any imprint on S E playing or SE shape; look at Jamal Belmadi how he did for Algeria or he is doing now,he has changed Algeria shape for a high quality team whitch can beat team in Africa with a short time Belmadi put his imprint on his country team;also look at Morrocan team and coach Halilusic has put in this team for short time,he made an incredible team who can beat any team in Africa;so Rhor might have done like them for SE but he is a useless and clueless coach depends on a lazy players like Ekoong,Iheanchu,Etepo, Balogun, Onauchu,Musa; and then neglect Azubiuke,Ughelumba, Oboabona,Dennis,Sadiq Umar, Dessers,Ezekiel Henty,Ovie Ejaria,Michael Oliseh,Igbekeme playmaker at Real Zaragoza.Also Rhor hasn’t a pattern or style of playing with SE;he might have put a defensive style of playing whitch SE are lacking until now. NEW coach must put this style of playing (a defensive pressing fierce and ferocious playing),also must play a depth football this needs him to select a playmakers like Ovie Ejaria or Michael Oliseh or to interact Iwobi in this job;also in defensive midfied he must select Okechukwu Azubiuke or Kelvin Akpoguma to assit Wilfred Ndidi,becuase they are strong and smartness in this job.

  • Ralph 6 days ago

    After 4-5 years in charge, the team still remain disjointed and we still need time to judge the coach?

    • Omo9ja 6 days ago

      That is our leaders/NFF for us. They don’t care about you and I.

      This is why we have to use the power of social media to chase them out of our daily activities in this country.

      Anything less than telling them the bitter truth, Nigeria/Super Eagles can not moving forward from this.

      The coach has failed to build a team for us over the past five years and NFF still thinking about what to do.

      That tells us that Oga Rohr will lead the team to Cameroon. NFF are just playing politics game period. God bless Nigeria!!!

  • onwajunior 6 days ago

    Damn!!! See Dessers’ goal… High IQ shit right there

  • Lookman is assisting and Scoring Goals, Victor Moses is assisting and scoring Goals, Dennis is assisting and Scoring goals, Awoniyi is a Goal Machine. Meanwhile Nigeria SE is labouring to victories each international fixture of late.. Coach Roar is retaining Bench warmers on the team and leaving out the above mentioned names. And Nigerian fans are scratching their heads wondering what is going wrong, what needs to be done yet most will still srpport the criminal deluded calls Roar is making WOW!!! Just WOW!!!!.. What a shambolic nation I mean the answer is glaringly obvious. Please god intervene this is frustrating!!!

  • Great 5 days ago

    My fellow Nigerians and Super Eagles fans,let us be realistic, is Moses Simon, a player for the Super Eagles? His performance for the Super Eagles leave much to be desired.

    I have watched him in the Super Eagles time and time again but don’t see what exactly he is playing for the national team.

    A lot of people will come here and say he has the best assist in Europe, does that translates into great performances while in national team? No.

    The quality of a good coach is a function of the kind of players he fields, the kind of tactics he deploys in games, the kind of substitutions he makes during play and his winning mentality.

    I have critically studied this coach using the aforementioned parameters and he is found deficient in all.

    His body language and utterances before, during and after matches are really unprofessional. Eg,after the last game, he said, the draw is like win to Nigeria.

    I don’t know what he thinks of Nigerians, are we low in logical reasoning? No, not at all.

    This set backs in our national team is still been supported by some Nigerian who are contented with mediocrity.

    The Egyptian national team coach was fired during the qualifiers, they still qualified from the group as the best team. Why is Nigeria different???

  • Jerry 5 days ago

    I love all of these comment, but the question is why are you not dealing with national issues this way, so NFF can be professional, the problem in SE is national problem, there is big problem in Nigeria that signal entire body of the country into corruption, Clement whestehol was to be fired when the head of government put him back to continue his job then, he did little well cause the system was better than this system, other nations that are doing well in soccer and sport have good or better government than Nigeria, corruption in the government affects everyone over there plus soccer and every areas, until that is solved I’m not sure of what you are fighting for will make good success, so Rohr is not your problem. So kill the snake first to avoid bite. If you like bring man city manager to SE he wouldn’t do anything better cause of corruption, Rohr have good heart for Nigeria cause I follow Nigeria SE a lot, I know the problem, Rohr discovers all these great players you are talking about but someone somewhere hold him back from using them. All those players you guys mentioned came through Rohr, don’t condemns Rohr someone is playing music in the secret that Rohr is dancing to. Let me stop here sorry Rohr for all those insults and forgive them cause they don’t know what you are going through in the secret . Please blame your government and NFF.
