Chris Green: Super Eagles ship is sinking under Gernot Rohr

Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr was present at the first training session of selected Nigeria Professional Football League players in Abuja on Wednesday.

A former board member of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Christopher Green has called on the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to save the Super Eagles ship from sinking under Gernot Rohr before it’s too late.

In an interview with ESPN, Green said that for the first time the majority of journalists, commentators and a cross-section of Nigerians agreed that the Super Eagles have not improved over five years with Rohr in the saddle.

He also stated that Nigerians deserve better performance from the Super Eagles and warned that the signs are there if drastic change is not made.

“To most Nigerians, to continue to see the Eagles perform this way gives a lot of heartaches.

“Our football is suffering. Rohr has done a lot of damage to our game because the Super Eagles are Nigeria’s flagship in world football.

“We need the best for our team at every time, no sentiments. For the first time, we can see the majority of journalists, commentators and a cross-section of Nigerians agreeing that the Super Eagles have not improved over five years with Rohr in the saddle.

“Can’t our football administrators in the NFF see that the ship is sinking? The signs are ominous and the air is delicate. It is not late to change.”

Rohr remains under pressure, despite qualifying the Super Eagles for the 2022 World Cup playoffs. Nigeria played out an uninspiring 1-1 draw with Cape Verde at home to progress into the third round of qualifying.
