Rohr: Nigerian Footballers Are Obedient, Respectful 

Rohr: Nigerian Footballers Are Obedient, Respectful 

Super Eagles head coach, Gernot Rohr, has praised Nigerian footballers for their obedience and respectfulness.

Rohr, 67, was appointed Super Eagles coach in 2016 and has qualified the team to the AFCON and FIFA World Cup.

And speaking in the podcast “Leadertalk” with German television channel Sport1, Rohr said:”There are so many different footballers and people in Nigeria and they all have to form a team that is marching in the same direction. It’s a very interesting task. I still enjoy it.

“You have to be ready to be inspired everywhere, to be able to adapt, not to be afraid of new things. It takes tolerance but also hard work.”

“In Nigeria, the players have a lot of respect for the personality of the coach. They are very obedient.

“The elderly enjoy a lot of respect here. They are not just deported to homes, they stay in the family and are always listened to. That’s wonderful.

“The older people get, the more respect they get. It’s nice to see how the players implement this, including the big stars like Obi Mikel, Victor Moses or Vincent Enyeama.”

Rohr and his players will be back in action in March when they will be guests to Benin Republic on matchday five of the 2021 AFCON qualifiers.

      When you finish writing your garbage you end it with Shalom SMH. I doubt if anyone here hates a coach except you and your myopic shallow minded thinkers who expect people to be smiling when a coach is messing up.

      I don’t know how you feel but let me ask you how do you feel when your team is dominated and can not complete passes? How do you feel when you loose to less privileged teams? How do you feel when your strikers can not relate with your coaches tactics? How do you feel when you know your coach plays players out of position and you realize this same players perform well at their club sides?Shalom! LMAO

        @Chima samuel

        “…how do you feel when your team is dorminated and can not complete passes?…”
        (-oga lie small small.
        Under Rohr SE has the highest win ratio ever. They’ve won bigger teams, how did the get dorminated and can’t string passes?
        Algeria, cameroun, poland, zambia, argentina are some of the big boys we thrash. Mention the number of teams that dorminated nigeria. At afcon, apart Cameroun no other team outplayed nigeria. Not even Algeria)

        “…How do you feel when your team loose to less privilleged teams?…”
        (-if loosing a dead robber game to MADAGASCAR is less privilege; then NAMIBIA, CONGO loss is the “LESSEST PRIVILEGE”. LOL)

        “…How do you feel when your strikers can not relate with your coaches tactics?…”
        (-OGA U SABI TELL LIE.
        IGAHLO WAS THE HIGHEST GOAL SCORER AT BOTH QUALIFIERS & afcon. Osimhen is the current top scorer in afcon qual. How did they top the chat if they don’t know the tactics na?
        Lieing is in your DNA bros.)

        “…How do you feel when your coach plays players out of position and you realize this same players play well at their club sides?…”
        (-oga satan dey salute u in terms of lie… Balogun, Akpogum some times operate from RB at their club, Kalu do play WB at bordeux, Aina plays both Lb/RB at club.)

        why u dey tell us lie na?
        Wetin we do u na?

          Lmao!!! @UBFE. The guy just decided to come out with blatant lies today I dey laugh in ibibio!! Chima. I know you’re a true SuperEagles fan, but this one you wrote above are pure lies coming out hatred. You should be better than this crap you’re saying.

           
        • Oakfield 2 days ago

          Claps @UBEF, they come with lies, we blow them away with the truth, facts and figures. And they’d temporarily disappear like miserable ghosts. That’s their trade mark. They lie more than the devil himself. Shebi na the same super eagles players that our past guardiolas said they were stubborn and disrespectful? How come a white man is saying the opposite??? When rubber doesn’t exchange hands, they’d label u a stubborn player without respect.

  • Collins id 3 days ago

    If he enjoys the players respect, then he should reciprocate by respecting them back too, if not we the fans will continue to disrespect him here.
    Rohr is too small to make us cry
    We only cry for the eagles not for rohr, without eagles who kno rohr?
    I didnt even know of his existence before peakmilk gave him the oversize shoes he is wearing. If he continue with his disrepectfull simons he will take the work of shame, mr average.

      Great talk broda man, na proper talk you talk. The German man in oversize shoes should reprect the Super Eagles players and Nigerians. LOLZZZZ.

    My opinion on genart rohr has changed,I now know why he is insisting on ighalo returning to the team,ighalo seems to be the most lethal striker we in Nigeria,ighalo played in Italy,Spain, England ,China and now Saudi Arabia and he’s been prolific,he did well in those league while osimehn floped in Germany,did well in Belgium and France, becoming a flop in Italy,we can’t trust him to lead the line for our attack,I believe that rohr has seen these things,hence his insistence on bringing back ighalo.onuachu ,oyekwuru, iheanacho have been tried and they all failed.i used to be rohr number 1 critic but I will now cut him some slag ,cos I can now see what he sees.pls this is my opinion,u are free to have ur own opinion.

     
    • Collins id 3 days ago

      @michel, point of correction onyekuru never failed and osihmen is not a flop, gattuso is a flop to napoli, osihmen have scored 4 goals and 4 assist for Nigeria in his last three games, that is incredibly massive for a 21 year old striker, you are saying this bcos he havnt scored for napoli since he came back from injury. Mane and salah have been losing with liverpool for over 6 games, ayew and zaha have been losing aswell with crystalpalace and they have not been scoring, does it mean that their national team shirts is nolonger guarantee? Osihmen is a beast in our colour, 10 goals history in u 17 wcup, scored in u20 and u 23, he is a complete striker that we havelong waited for since rashidi. I will not allow napoli ruin my love and respect for osihmen, ighalo started been good at the age of 30 plus, he was a flop in udinese too when he was much yunger, serie A is not a goal flowing league bcos of its deffensive reputation you will need some time and age to perform better there. If you dont agree with me go and ask thiery henry, asamoah gyan, martins,huntler etc they will tell better bcos they where once labelled flops in serie A’ osihmen havnt gotten the regular tap in or one on one goal opportunities to up is goal tally like other strikers are enjoying but the two goals and assist he have managed to offer for napoli are what replaying, and shows he is indeed a special gem.

    Some people will have ulcer and high blood pressure on this forum because of Rohr. Hatred is a disease. It is worse than cancer. One thing I know hatred can do is that it denies people the opportunity to see anything good in situations and they completely lose every iota of objectivity. And there is no reason to even argue with a man full of hatred. It’s a complete waste of time. Hatred brings mental blindness and make people unreasonably biased. It turns them to bigots, racists and incapable of any form of reasoning ability.

    I pray the Lord will heal anyone on this forum who has been blinded by hatred. I pray they will once again regain their sight and common sense, which is definitely not common.

     
  • lanre 3 days ago

    i wonder if those refering to Gernot Rohr as an average coach ever knew that he was the coach of Zinedan Zidane who played for bordeau at the 1996 European finals that they lost……they say he chooses his players nd play them out of positions but other world class coaches do same;just last week our Leon Balogun was played at rightback against royal antwerp nd he did really well.Gernot Rohr is straightforward but an average nigerian hates flatfootedness…..its completely alien nd unacceptable to him

    @UBFE, I don’t hate rohr, nor you and your fellow Rohr girlfriends, to shock you the more, trabelsi(rohr assistant) is my neighbour here in freiburg, I meet his wife most times as equal as I meet you here, she his my wife casual friend, I show love and support to her bcos her husband works for me (super eagle) I may be yabin you guys its part of the fun that keeps you coming here. if I can’t get to Rohr level as you claimed at list I am here in your level, I can as well lash you on his behalf lol.
    What you fail to understand is that I have tried to support rohr bcos i am a nigerian and he is my employee, I am his boss, I feed him at the moment, therefore I have to support him, especially when the eagles are playing (who nor like better thin?) We all want eagles to win the world in football. But i will not keep quiet and watch him sink my ship. If he talks anyhow I will cure him bcos he is just a staff if president buhari is still owing me a flying heading, for calling me lazy and refering my first lady to the kitchen, who is Rohr that have long been owing me a reserved slap against Southafrica, a knock against Argentina, 10 strokes against Algeria, a kick out against Ukraine and of recent a complete smackdown against serrieleone, you can see that he owes me alot, he can still get it if he fails to deliver, dont border, the fine is affordable lol.
    I am no permanent friend when it comes to football if you are worth my praises you will definitely get if you are not deserving I will not shy away from leting you know. Just like a moving train it’s for everybody if you are available at the stop you join if you are late you miss it.
    Rohr first ever medal as a coach is afcon bronze, thanks to naija.
    If a French man (rohr) took a French team team to a UEFA final it’s a normal thing(I can bet you if you watch that match zidane played rightback in that game lol, that’s why they lost)
    Kadiri kana a Nigerian won a back to back African champions league title with a nigerian team, coupled with two domestic titles he is far better than… ?

    Stephen keshi a Nigerian took a Togolese nationalteam(underdogs) to world cup(Niger and gabon are bigger than togo)
    He won afcon and qualify Nigeria to wcup round 16 with the real I repeat real average eagles setup, ignoring Martin’s utaka ogbeche osaze taiye taiwo etc. He is far far better than belmadi’s …..?

    Siasia won Olympic silver and bronze he is a Nigerian and he is far far far better than PA ……?
    If we have to rely on belmadi boy’s 1996 bourdeux aristocratic final experience, then I will advise we recall boffery joe who won afcon as an assistant in 1994 and Olympic gold as a boss in 1996 added to afcon silver 2000, he never lost a 90 minutes game in all his afcon experience, he is far far far far better than what is the name of that Madagascar coach boy?

     
    • Ayphillydegreat 3 days ago

      It was Osaze who scored the goal that took us to the round of 16 at the WorldCup. If not for the NFF intervention the rest is history. Niger and Gabon are not bigger than Togo when it comes to football abeg find another excuse and Keshi was sacked after he couldn’t take Togo out the group stage at the AFCON. He couldn’t even take almighty Mali out of the group stage despite having Keita, Mamadou Diarra, Bagayoko and the likes. It was in his third try with Nigeria that he finally won the AFCON and eventually failed to qualify for the next one. Don’t forget he also failed to take our U20 out of the AFCON group stage at a time. Siasia won Olympic silver and bronze, but it’s on record that he failed to qualify the SuperEagles for the AFCON twice. If what we have now is not better than 2015 then go and bring Ancelotti, Conte, Guardiola, Klopp and co to come and win the WorldCup for us. WorldCup kọ na so e easy to win WorldCup?? 

       
      • UBFE 2 days ago

        @Ayphyllidegreat.

        Thank u for schooling him.

        Sometimes they pretend as if they really love this Keshi when he was in charge.

        They were the ones calling him all sort of names. Today they’re singing his praise like no other.

        Anybody that comes in to SE (coach or player) they quickly start developing hatred against once they’re not related or they don’t benefit directly or indirectly from him.

        The WALDRUM they’re singing today would be their worst enemy tomorrow… (i’ve already noted their post about waldrum, no shaking.)

        @Collins id.
        U like criticising Rohr in all angle, Zidane was used at RB during that final which to u is not right but u refused questioning ARTETA for using SAKA(ATTACKER) at LB bf he gain recorgnition.

        How did GARETH BALE ignor his LB and become a prolific attacking player u never question his coach at spurs.

        How about IWOBI that both ANCELOTI/WENGER deploy at WBs.

        How about V.MOSES that CONTE shifted to wb.

        How about ASHELY YOUNG, ANTHONIO VALENCIA.

        I WATCHED WHEN FERGUSON USED RAFAEL/FABIO DA SILVAs AS A RIGHT/WINGER WINGER AND STILL BEAT ARSENAL.

        PLS LOOK FOR ANOTHER CRITICISM AND DECEIVE THEM. TANKIU.

    This discussion has expired there’s no need to go further when it was hot they went hiding now they come out with nonsense points that I will say is still garbage and doesn’t stand a chance to counter our claims. Balogun played as RB and did well because of the coach behind the instructions this same Balogun will mess up in that role if tinkered by Rohr.

     After coaching Bordeaux in 1996 which other reasonable country hired Rohr and what did he achieve with them before coming to naija? Yes he had a good beginning with us but for the last two years what has been his results? These days you can’t put your hope on SE to win against average teams you make plans to enjoy a match with FAF and end up in pain after drawing or loosing. Already the dirty excuses is fast rolling in again for matches that we are expected to win and qualify with ease. 

    Most of you are full of shit and nothing else so there’s no point going back and forth with shallow minded shenanigans when everything is there to see.

      What fallacy are you talking about? What reply did you give me? That nonsense of a thing that you call reply? Block head you think Rohr is technically gifted as Steven Gerard your brain is full of maggot. Give Rohr Rangers Job and see if excuses will not be the order of the day. I hate it but I don’t know how come I have reduced myself into conversation with many rubbish here starting from drey, ayphilly and etcetra too many dirty tyrants here. I have read in places where if anyone speaks against Rohr you idiots attributes them indirectly to me as my clone but not your faults.

      If sports is an addiction to warrant nonsense from a nobody then we have to sacrifice this addiction so save respect and dignity.
