Super Eagles: Why I turned down advice from NFF officials – Rohr

Gernot Rohr

Former Super Eagles head coach, Gernot Rohr has insisted that he rejected advice from officials of the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, when he was in charge of the Nigeria national team.

The NFF sacked Rohr from his role last Sunday and appointed former Eagles captain, Augustine Eguavoen, on an interim basis pending the appointment of a permanent boss.

Speaking with ESPN, Rohr revealed he didn’t follow some of the suggestions of the officials because he wanted to make players’ selection with his technical staff and not with people from outside the team.

“I know Nigerians are passionate about football and everyone has their own favorites and I understand that everybody wants to see some players and we discussed it,” Rohr said.

“Perhaps I didn’t follow some of the suggestions and the advice of the officials; that is possible because I wanted to make the choice (selections) with my technical staff and not with people from outside the team.

“I had a lot of suggestions. I understand that officials want us to do well, everyone wants to bring in their advice and opinion, but it was too much.”
