“I want to take this team to CAF champions League. It is good that the league will restart on August 15, so we’ll work hard towards our objective”.

Mohammed also revealed he has the ambition of coaching in Nigeria league any time soon.

    Honestly, I still have my hands on my head….Egbo with years of experience in Albania (on his way to winning a title), Gbadebo with years of coaching experience in Thailand (on his way to winning a title), Mohammed with years of coaching experience in Sudan (gunning for top spot with great clubs like Al Hilal and El Merreikh) plus all the other ones coaching reserve and U19s sides for clubs in Europe and Pinnick chose to shove someone who isnt even a coach down our throat as the Asst Coach of the biggest, most senior and most important National team we have….he knows more football that all these other ones nde….??? Issokay…..We will never stop talking about it……!!!

        Very painful. In fact, I’m still bemused about it. Their excuse is based on caps and conduct (“being a good boy) ahead of prerequisite experience and qualifications and most people are working around as if nothing is wrong. A lot is wrong!! Some even say , may be he can spring surprises but it is just a big fat lie from the pit of hell. Yobo is doomed for failure , period!!! There are no two ways about it. There’s only one way to success, you can’t cut corners to attain success. If you do, it will backfire in the long run and that’s exactly what is about to happen to him. Soon He’ll be given the chan team and by God’s Grace we shall all be here when it’ll start happening. Useless country!

    coach Egbo has already won the league with two games still remaining.
    any ways that is to show how connection and corruption are at their peak in our football.
    i jxt pray Yobo would not end up as the dead insect in our soup.

    Credit to these coaches doing great things in their various clubs. But I will continue to say that the only reason Yobo will fail is, if he goes on to act the written script of Rohr’s witch hunter, otherwise he is bound to succeed if he humbly accept to learn under Rohr. But again all of these depends on if he is lucky to enter into his 5 year cycle of success with this appointment. These other coaches like Egbo, n the likes, might have just entered this cycle, they must take advantage of it n move their career to the very height like Jose Mourinho, or they face a downward trend without reaching the height.
