Westerhof: ‘Eagles Must Compensate Me With AFCON 2019 Bronze Medal Tonight’

Clemens Westerhof says Super Eagles disappointed him after the three-time African champions lost their 2019 Africa Cup of Nations semifinal match to the Desert Foxes of Algeria,  Completesports.com reports.

Nigeria’s AFCON 1994 title-winning coach, however, says he would only be ‘compensated’ with a win over the Carthage Eagles of Tunisia in tonight’s Third-Place match.

“Yeah, it was bad result, the Super Eagles disappointed me by losing to Algeria,” Westerhof told Completesports.com  on Wednesday afternoon.

“It was a bad performance, no creativity, no cohesion in the attack. It was bad.

“I did not see it coming. I don’t know, but something was wrong. Super Eagles did not play”.

The Super Eagles are billed to take on the Carthage Eagles of Tunisia in a few hours from now, in a bronze match and Westerhof is beaming with confidence the Gernot Rohr’s men will ‘compensate’ him for that heartbreaking loss to Riyad Mahrez- inspired Algeria with a victory against Tunisia.

“The Super Eagles will have to fight. Tunisia are good technically and tactically, but the Eagles must win.

“They must tell Nigerians ‘it was a mistake we lost to Algeria’. They must fight for the pride of their country, they must ‘compensate’ me for losing the match to Algeria.

“Yes, they will come back home with something (bronze). It is good for their career instead of coming home empty-handed.”

The match kicks off at 8 pm Nigerian time tonight. The first time the Super Eagles won the Nations Cup on away soil was in Tunisia in 1994.

    There we go again. This is the man that knows football inside out. This is the man that can tell NFF the truth.

    My advice to Mr. Amaju, instead of wasting our money sending Oga Rohr for refresher training program, why can’t you call Mr. Westerhof back to be an assistant coach to a Nigeria young coach?

    I prefer Amunike to be the next coach because of his achievements and he is a smart person, human and he his always ready for any challenge you throw at him and also, he his trying to achieve big things in his career.
    He is bold enough, confident and ready to work with anybody. So therefore,

    Amunike head coach.
    Obuh and Westerhof assistant coaches
    Kanu team adviser
    Peter Rufai, goalkeeper trainer.

    End of story.

    “It was a bad performance, no creativity, no cohesion in the attack. It was bad.

    “I did not see it coming. I don’t know, but something was wrong. Super Eagles did not play”.

    What a smart man. Something was wrong indeed. God bless Nigeria!!!

    If Rohr would continue after this afcon please sir I have a list of midfielders who could add some spark in the team, just as mikel and ogu are nearing the end of their SE career:
    -Obinna Nwobodo (best player in his Hungarian club upjest last season)
    -Azubuike Okechukwu (watch out just got signed on by Istanbul Bk)
    -Kingsley Sokari (decent baller but needs to add goals to his game)
    -James Igbekeme (made 33 appearances for real Zaragoza last term)

    Nwakali brothers ought to have been here but they should settle down in a club & be respected as an integral part of their Squad_ although good materials looking forward~

    Let them put Iwobi on his toes_ We can Remain ‘Super’ for many years to come /Eze puo Eze anochie I.e Soldier go soldier come/
