It is High Time to Let Rohr Leave - Oliseh tells NFF
An erstwhile Nigerian midfielder, Sunday Oliseh has called on the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to sack the Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr due to his inability to move Nigeria’s football forward since he has been coaching the country for over 4 years ago.
It will be noted that the Super Eagle suffered a 1 nil defeat on Wednesday from the Central African Republic.
It’s disgusting the level the coach has taken our football to. I watched the game and we didn’t have a definite pattern and a philosophy of how we play. I dare ask what he has achieved in five years with these talented players at his disposal.
“Since his appointment, this coach has been paid $55,000 per month, the sum of $2,640,000 by a country where the U-17, U-23, the Super Falcons and Super Eagles are threatening strike for unpaid wages. Put that in perspective for a moment, our football is not the same as it was. We need a fresh direction before it’s too late.”
