‘Gernot Rohr Is The Worst Coach In Nigeria History’ – Yakubu Aiyegbeni Slams German Tactician

After criticizing the German strategist, the former Super Eagle believes that many of the team’s players are simply not up to the task.

Yakubu Aiyegbeni believes that coach Gernot Rohr and a significant proportion of the Nigerian national team players are not in a position to wear the famous green and white jersey after their outing against Sierra Leone.

In the recent Africa Cup of Nations tie against the Leone Stars, the Super Eagles gave up a four-goal lead in the first leg to settle for a 4-4 draw, while the second leg in Freetown ended 0-0 , with Rohr’s team looking off the beat in both games.

Even with draws, the three-time African champions lead Group L with eight points from four matches, although their qualifying hopes for Cameroon 2020 are frozen.

Questions have been asked of decision makers on the Super Eagles team and important decisions have been made on and off the field.

And Aiyegbeni, who is Nigeria’s third-highest-scoring player of all time, believes the German tactician should bear most of the blame for his poor form.

“The manager is not good enough, let him go,” said the former Maccabi Haifa, Everton and Portsmouth striker in Lagos talks.

“Some of the guys are not good enough, I don’t know where they bring them from. Who is inviting these players?

“Our football gets worse every day. When I was there, people criticize us, but we are much better than these.

“The coach is not good enough, no idea. Gernot Rohr is one of the worst coaches in our history. It’s not good enough. “

Former Gabon and Etoile du Sahel coach Rohr replaced Sunday Oliseh as the country’s permanent manager in 2016. He led the Super Eagles to the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, where they collapsed from a group that Argentina had. , Iceland and Croatia.

He was also in charge when Nigeria came third at the 2019 Egypt Afcon, where they beat Tunisia 1-0 for the bronze medal.

Nigeria will travel to Stade Charles de Gaulle in Porto-Novo for their next match against the Republic of Benin in March 2021.
