Rohr Warned Me Against Playing For Slavia Prague With Pain Killers- Olayinka

Rohr Warned Me Against Playing For Slavia Prague With Pain Killers- Olayinka

Nigerian striker and Slavia Prague forward, Peter Olayinka has revealed that Super Eagles Coach, Gernot Rohr cautioned him against using pain killers to feature in matches for his club side.

Olayinka, in an interview with a Lagos-based radio station, disclosed that he played the round of 16 Europa League games against Rangers using pain killers to subdue the injury he was nursing despite the possibility of aggravating the situation.

But he said the decision to play against Rangers meant he could not honour the 2021 Africa Cup Of Nations Qualifiers against Benin and Lesotho, both of which Nigeria won.

“I had a discussion with Slavia Coach before the game against Rangers because we both trust each other.

“So we agreed that I have to play, but with painkillers and the risk paid off, because I scored the first goal.

“Then after the game, I spoke to Gernot Rohr as well about my injury and that I can’t honour the invitation for the matches.

“He understood me and he later warned me not to play with painkillers anymore, in order to avoid more problems,” Olayinka said.

        I THINK WHAT ROHR NEEDS IS A BONFRERE JO KIND OF ASSISTANT,TO HELP BRING THE BEST OUT OF HIS TEAM,MAYBE SOME FINENESS IN THEIR STYLE,AND IMPROVE THEIR SCORING ABILITY. WE HAVE A TEAM ALREADY,BUT NOT WORLD CLASS.

          @OmoEsan… How person go do brother? The whole ball wey Olayinka the play since na only 3minutes him don get with Super Eagles over 2years na. He has been romancing standby list for God knows when na… We be witness! Whatever Rohr told him… has his status changed from being a fringe player? I am his most crusader here and have come under attack for that several times… Lol.

    @JimmyBall I understand you very well bro but We shouldn’t just jump into conclusion without knowing the reasons behind the gaffers decision on some issue

     
    • JimmyBall 4 months ago

      @Basiliano…if I may ask… Was he named to standby list after his talk with Rohr or before? Either way then it’s corny! Lol…

      No o, Rohr took the space meant for Olayinka and gave to Musa. This Rohr is too bias, how can he not reward consistency and hardwork of Olayinka. This is terrible.

       
      • Omo, did you read the article ? Na wa!

         
        • Ikeben 4 months ago

          I read it o, but simply echoing what one of our distinguished fortune has been lamenting for weeks, And we kept trying to convince him that Rohr knows what his doing regarding player invitation. I spoke Ironically.

            @ikeben, Olayinka was injured…that was why he wasn’t invited. Kindly read the article again.
