Nigeria’s assistant coach Joseph Yobo says head coach Gernot Rohr would decide his role in the Super Eagles.
Yobo was appointed by the Nigeria Football Federation as replacement for Imama Amapakabo in February.
“With the level of our discussions, I believe we will have a cordial working relationship. I have not meet the Eagles coach personally, but I believe he is a good coach,”Yobo said during a radio programme.
“Every national team has five assistants working with the team, but in our case Rohr will determine the role he wants me to play in the team.

Yobo, who represented his country at the 1999 Under-20 World Cup, skippered the Super Eagles to Africa Cup of Nations success in South Africa in 2013.
The former Everton, Fenerbahce and Norwich City defender played in six Africa Cup of Nations tournaments between 2002 and 2013 in a 14-year career.
He featured in three World Cup tournaments in 2002, 2010 and 2014, playing ten matches at the World Cup finals in total – the most appearances for the West African nation on the biggest stage.
Yobo became the first African to captain Everton in October 2007 and made more than 250 appearances for the Toffees, helping them qualify for the Champions League in 2005 and playing in the side that lost the 2009 FA Cup final to Chelsea.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
