Ex chairman of the Nigeria Football Federation’s technical and development committee, Chris Green has come out to say that Gernot Rohr does not have the technical know-how to get the best out of the Super Eagles team.
Green recently revealed that Rohr doesn’t even possess the knowledge to guide the Super Eagles to success at the world stage.
According to him, with the kind of football squad Nigeria currently has, the team should be very hard to beat, but that has not been the case under the German manager.
He added that the Nigerian national team is far from where it is supposed to be, and the performances shouldn’t be average with so many talented players.
His words, “We are far from where we are supposed to be, and average in the sense that with fantastic and talented players we are not getting the best out of these players technical-wise,”
“First and foremost, I do not know his philosophy, the technical prowess he could exhibit in a game when faced with very stiff opposition.”
“Ordinarily, with the kind of players we have, we should be a hard nut to crack when it comes to playing in Africa and globally.”
“We got our worst result at the World Cup during his time and we couldn’t get to the second stage. With due respect to the Argentines, we had a lame Argentine team to beat because they were there for the taking, but of course, technically we lost it.”
“We came to the Africa Cup of Nations and we also saw it coming when Madagascar beat us but we struggled to get to the semi-final but we also lost it again because of lack of technical depth in our team.”
“I am not saying Rohr is not a coach but he doesn’t have that thing that will make us world-beaters.”
“Our players are world-beaters and they can play in any team in the world but unfortunately coming to Nigeria and playing as a team under a coach who I think will not be able to get the best out of them because he doesn’t really know how to get the best out of them and that’s why our results are limited.”
