Sunday Dare, the Minister of Youth and Sports Development, has frowned at Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr over his attitude towards home-based players of the senior national team.
Rohr had denied involvement in this weekend’s home-based Super Eagles friendly against Mexico and went on to hand the coaching responsibilities to the Teachnical Director of the side, Austin Eguavoen.
Reacting while on a visit to the home-based players on Tuesday ahead of the team’s departure to the US for the friendly, Dare called on the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) to call the coach to order.
Dare said, “His attitude towards home-based players is unacceptable, it is negative to our football development in this country. I call on the NFF to call him to order. I call on the NFF to hold him by the content of the letter of his contract, but beyond that, he needs to shut up and do the work for which he was hired to do. He talks too much.”
