Rohr: Okoye Not Yet Super Eagles First Choice

Rohr: Okoye Not Yet Super Eagles First Choice

Gernot Rohr says Maduka Okoye is not yet the first choice of the Super Eagles as he still has a lot of work to do.

Okoye has been in superb form for his Dutch side Sparta Rotterdam keeping four clean sheets so far.

He kept goal for the Eagles in their four games this year keeping out the likes of Daniel Akpeyi and Ikechukwu Ezenwa.

However, Rohr says the young shot stopper has not yet made the position is own.

“All the goalkeepers in the team have been first choice for some time and now it’s Okoye’s turn,” Rohr told owngoalnigeria.com.

“He has to work really hard to hang on to the position because the others are eager to be there. So it is not his own yet.

“He has done well with his club and that’s what you need to be in our team.”

    Unpon all the crisis that happened in during the Afcon qualifiers, is this goal keeping department should be a topic or an issue at the moment?

    Do we think the gaffer understand what is at stake at all ba?

    This topic should be between goal keeper trainers and the goalies.

    Oga Rohr didn’t come our to say I’m sorry Nigerians for the mistakes he made against Leone star.

    I won’t blame you because you don’t know our value.

    Scolari came out to apologize to all the Brazilian people when Germany hammed their team 7-1 at home in front of their fans at the world cup in Brazil.

    When the whole nation were weeping like babies. I will continue blaming NFF president for this.

    Instead of you Okoye to keep improving yourself but the ego have started. By calling yourself number one?

    Ikeme have never said he was number before he became number likewise Enyeama, Peter Rufai and Ike Shorunmu.

    Let God fight for you Okoye. Stop looking for number one spot Instead, keep improving yourself.

    I’m really sorry for this our country. It very painful that we have bad people to lead us in this country. So sad. It is well. God bless Nigeria!!!

        Did u ask oliseh to come and apologise to us when he abandoned our team and ran away?? Did u ask coach amokachi, eguavon and siasia to aplogise to us when they couldn’t qualify us for 3 consecutive afcons respectively in a row? Have u asked dare and pinnick to appologize to us for owing our team and it’s crew match bonuses and salaries for almost 2yrs??? You are such a very stupid and foolish person. You no see the number of diikes u have collected already for displaying your follishness and stupidity yet again? You really need to check urself very well bcs this thing is really gettin out of hand. I really pity those who are around you, honestly. Mr chief scout, why don’t you recommend another proven goal keeper to rohr nah. The afelokhai you were jumping around like a mad monkey, disturbing our ears like a miserable hungry mosquitoe has suddenly disappeared like a ghost without a trace…..apologise your ass!!!! Ewu gambia

        No Matter what happened, I will keep saying my own.

        I know very well that Nigerians hate the truth and majority of us likes to be deceived.

        Kai, how long did it take the gaffers to discovered another goalies after Ikeme?

        How long it took Olishe to discovered Ikeme?

        From this, is should be more clearer now that NFF and people around our sports will not letting our ex players to show us their worth.

        Keep celebrating average results till next world. The time will tell.

        Sebi FIFA ranking you people were celebrating like world cup trophy it’s no where to be found now? Continue. God bless Nigeria!!!

         
        • @Omo9ja….

          Who told u that it was Oliseh that discovered Karl Ikeme???

          Do u remember that one BETI VOGT took Ikeme to afcon in Ghana in 2008???

          Why must u keep misleading the gullible ones??

          See how hatred is bad??
          Ur hatred for Rohr is the cause….

          Repent u refuse…. Give credit to whom it’s due so that one day somebody would also appreciate ur effort; u would not….

          Ur life tire me o.

          U were shouting for ONUACHU; Rohr invited him time without number & he couldn’t measure up to expectation…. Ur brain-washed company started wailing, weeping & gnashing their teeth.

          U were crying for ONYEKA & boom Rohr invited him; the rest is history….

          There was a point in time u were crying for OKOYE & OSIQWE…. Okoye is now in the team yet u are still spewing gabbages from ur mouth….

          Why are u behaving like all those wicked wives that never appreciate their husband’s effort???

          Repent…. A word is enough for the wise….. I believe u are wise….

          Let football not make u to hate ur God’s image….

    Omogja sorry for yourself,cos what u just made up now made no sense and I can’t pick nothing out of it.It is not by force to say something on this forum. Just go back to those nonses u made above and see if u made any sense out of it.

     
  • I watched the SL first a second time. Semi Ajayi has to really sit up.

     
  • Larry 1 month ago

    I think it is Ekong who is playing in the second division that had to sit-up. Simi is playing regularly and gaining valuable experience playing in premiership.

     
  • Simi Ajaiye is doing well in his club

     
  • That omogja is like something is wrong with u where were wen Nigeria was booted out of WAFU but coming here 2 type shit all before cos Rohr said something which is right. Must u comment anytime did man said something?…

    Ikechukwu Ezenwa needs a second chance. He is more experienced than Okoye. He did far better against Cameroon and Zambia.

      Are you for real?????
      Ezenwa that is yet to play a competitive match for how long???
      Are you his agent??

       
      • Kenneth 1 month ago

        Has your captain played any competitive matches in months before the friendlies and nations cup. Since they said it is experience he had, doesn’t that apply to Ezenwa too

         
    • This joker is definitely an agent. He is the same person that commented on the Enyimba post that at least Kano Pillars should have 10 players in the Super Eagles. Is like something is doing you sir?

       
  • He needs to be consistent in his performances. Not conceding 4 goals today and keeping a clean sheet tomorrow. Let people see the confidence and maturity in him. There are other options in the goal keeping department but we cant keep doing trial and error method, we need to find the most capable of the lot, give him all the encouragement he needs and stick with him.

     
  • Presh 1 month ago

    Daniel Akpeyi’s people indirectly talking. Please Okoye is now our number 1. Or Francis Uzoho. 

     
  • Marvelous 1 month ago

    Which Ezenwa? Does he know how a goal post looks like for almost a year now?
