Rohr: I’m In Regular Contact With Yobo – We Can Have A Good Working Relationship’

Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr hopes to have a good working relationship with his new assistant Joseph Yobo, Completesports.com reports.

Yobo , a former Super Eagles captain was recently named as replacement for Imama Amapakabo by the Nigeria Football Federation.

“It is interesting to have such a former player with us,” Rohr told ESPN.

“I was satisfied with the job of Imama. He was a very good assistant. But NFF decided to change so I have to accept, and I accept. I see that this person now is in a good spirit and I am happy about it. There will not be any problem in our staff.

“I think it only could be so easy to say let’s do two years more. Nothing special from my side that I want more. So it could be very easy.”

Rohr said he had already put the newest addition to his staff to work.

“We spoke together; he gave me a first call and then I called him back and we are in touch regularly. I even asked him to help me already because I cannot move for the moment to take connections and contact our players in Nigeria.

“I asked him to meet and speak with Ikechukwu Ezenwa , with Ifeanyi Ifeanyi who was with us for one of the last games. There is also Samuel Kalu who is also in Lagos because he was able to take one of the last planes out of France. So I asked him to be in touch with some of our players who are in Nigeria, and that is what he did.

“I am happy to see that he has good motivation and is in good spirits and I think we can have a good working relationship together.”

    “….We spoke together; he gave me a first call and then I called him back and we are in touch regularly…”

    Praiiise thy Rhord…! (Apologies to Njideka Jesus)

    Yobo finally calls his boss.

    We will continue to knock sense into him till he learns ethics and professionalism…..even if it has to start from teaching him when and whom to call.

    This one na real intern o. Lolz

    A good evidence that yobo will make a good coach.

    Someone that listens,knows where he fails and adjust is a good sign of professionalism.

      Of course, he would listen to NFF bigwigs who will dictate to him whom to invite and whom not to.

      Hopefully, Rohr will teach him acts of professionalism like inviting players based and not via egunje money for hand back for ground from the NFF

    Yobo finally comes to his senses and calls his boss. Nice one. I’m happy that he has finally got off to a good start with Rohr. I believe he can do well, and he will definitely learn a lot. He should start working on his coaching badges asap!

    I don’t and can’t understand your need to speak German on an English site.
    It’s your prerogative, though. If you like, you can also communicate by barking like a dog. It would be nice if everybody could read and understand you, but if you chose to communicate in a language most here can’t comprehend, then that’s your cup of tea!

    N.B. – If your intent is to pose for us by speaking German, you have played the ball OVER THE BAR.
