Nigerian Senator Orji Uzor Kalu, has called on the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to sack Gernot Rohr as Manager of the Super Eagles.
The erstwhile Governor of Abia State made this known via his Facebook page, where he said that the NFF must find a quick replacement for the German tactician if he’s not doing the right thing.
Recall that Rohr’s Super Eagles recently qualified for the 2022 FIFA World Cup play-offs after playing a 1-1 draw against Cape Verde on Tuesday at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos.
He said, “In the last five years, we have wasted our time in football. There is nothing new we are doing any longer. To see a country with many professional players home and abroad struggling to qualify for the Africa Cup of Nations and World Cup is heartbreaking. Gernot Rohr is not a good coach and I don’t understand why he is still managing Super Eagles.
“When I Was Governor, he applied to become employed as Enyimba coach. He was brought to Nigeria by Oscar Udoji but I refused to employ him. I am calling on the Chairman of NFF, Mr Amaju Pinnick to wake up and to quickly find a replacement for Rohr. We soccer lovers don’t need further dissatisfaction in a game, we have the capacity to make ourselves proud.
“If the problems you have this year are the same problems you had last year, then you are not a leader. You are rather a problem on your own that must be solved.”
