New Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr has expressed his love for the U-23s tro Sadiq Umar, Imoh Ezekiel and Oghenekaro Etebo and has told the Nigeria Football Federation chieftains that he wants them in the new Eagles he will soon assemble.


A top official of the NFF told Completesportnigeria.com that the new coach started work even before signing his contract on Tuesday by watching the Nigeria Under-23 team beat Sweden 1-0 at the Rio 2016 Olympics and he was impressed by the skills of Umar and Etebo as well as the work ethic of some other players of the team.

According to our source, the new coach was so impressed with the Olympic team’s play that he asked if it were possible to build his team with this squad in Rio for the Olympic Games in Brazil but was told that he has to watch other teams play before making up his mind.

“I can tell you that the man also knows about Iwobi, Iheanacho, Ighalo, Mikel, Victor Moses and a host of other Nigerian players plying their trades in Europe. The man is raring to go and I think he is the kind of coach that will get the Super Eagles back on track.”

  • gernot rohr. what a name. he is all fired up to kick off with the job. it is a good sign he will put every thing into making this work. of course with the cooperative of the nff who are full of criminals including amaju pinnick. chris green is the prince of criminal in nff. i heard the fed govt vow(vow) to investigate and criminalize anyone in the olympic money. although it is noc matter, nff member will definitely be found guilty. anyway that is another time's gist. back to rohr. i have never supported a foreign coach for eagles. nff has deafened my ear with the wailing of no money. nff is broke. so who is fooling who? the hiring of rohr has convinced me that there is money but it is embezzled and so the cry of no money is just a smokescreen. crywolf sort of. so if you can pay rohr for 2yrs in dollar converted to naira, then you can pay all your coaches in naira converted to dollar.the same way you source for the rohr money. climb the same ladder to the top of the mountain to get it. wicked. the good part of this coach looks as if he will work. the ugly part is that he has a lot of sack-letters in his closet. summary of this whole cinema is that nff will chop and the coach will collect his money and smile to the bank without any stress. nonsense, yusuf would have done the same job with less money. talk of greed and heartlessness.
