    Abeg o. Bordeaux should pack well for now. We need this man more than ever before.

  • Where did this story come from. If it is anywhere know that the mind game in this World Cup(WC) has started proper. Nigerians be ready, it has started. It is planted by either of our WC foes, Argentina, Iceland or Croatia. Come to think of it. The dream of every coach is to have on his Resume that he coached or led so-so and so team at the WC. Bordeaux will not be so dumb and deaf to want him when the WC is just 5 month away and the end of the French league will be rounding up even before then. It no make brain at all. If the story is that after the WC, we can understand but here it is now now now. Dem be mumu? Rohr has deny it, end of story. Bye-bye. The mind game has started oooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! World Cup here we come.
