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.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
