Following the chaotic result recorded at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin City by the Nigerian Super Eagles against Sierra Leone Leone Stars, the Minister of Youth and Sports, Sunday Dare, has questioned the technical ability of the Eagles manager, Gernot Rohr.
Dare, who initially opposed the resumption of the Franco-German tactician by the NFF, said that what unfolded last week on Friday in Edo state against low-rated Leone Stars showed that Rohr does not have what you need to manage our players. .
“It is quite incredible to see our Super Eagles four goals ahead in the first thirty minutes of the game conceding the same number of goals in the fifty minutes of play. Rohr has spent almost 5 years in Nigeria and cannot produce first team players.
“How long can we continue to accommodate mediocrity? Coaching is about hiring and firing. You cannot stay with a coach who cannot give you results. So far, with Rohr, our players have done no better. We remain an average nation in African soccer.
“Frankly, something is wrong somewhere and it’s about time we fix it.” Dare said.
During the tension and media frenzy surrounding Rohr’s contract renewal, remember that the Minister of Youth and Sports insisted that Rohr must improve his game if he is to retain his position.
It was at this point that some people accused the minister of trying to hire another coach to replace Rohr.
