Nigeria’s Ex-international, Daniel Amokachi, has said that Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr is not the right manager for the team at this time.

Amokachi, who said this on Brila Fm while assessing Rohr’s time as Super Eagles manager, added that it is unacceptable for the coach to claim that he was still building a team after 5 years in charge.

Coach Rohr was heavily criticised after the Super Eagles failed to beat West African minnows, Sierra Leone over two legs in an African Cup of Nations qualifier.

The first leg played at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin City, the Edo State capital ended in an embarrassing 4-4 draw after the Super Eagles lost control of the game they led 4-0 at some point.

Sierra Leone also held the team to a goalless draw in the return leg played in Freetown.

The Super Eagles failed to win a single game in year 2020.

He said, “The person in charge has been there for five years already but there is nothing to write home about,” Amokachi was quoted as saying by Lagos-based Brila FM.

“Is he the right person to take the country forward, in my opinion, I don’t think so because five years is a lot a coach to say he’s building a team and then, he can’t give you starting eleven?

“We have also seen some decisions that a right coach wouldn’t have made and a coach that doesn’t take the backroom staffs along end up having big problems.

“I saw in a lot of games that he doesn’t relate with the bench in most of the time, we heard what happened in Benin that he just wrote a note and gave to the team’s secretary and they made substitutions and even some of the players were furious about it and let their voice heard from the bench.

“But then Nigerians know he’s not the right person to take Nigerian football forward,” he submitted.”
