Former Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr has revealed that he turned down suggestions and advises from the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) when it comes to players selection because he trusted his technical team.
Rohr, who was sacked on Sunday by the NFF for his poor performance with the Super Eagles during the 2022 World Cup qualifiers, told ESPN that he has no regret for his decision.
He said, “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,”
“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.”
Rohr has been in charge of the three –time African champions for the past 64 months, and is Nigeria’s longest-serving manager.
