Technical Adviser Gernot Rohr on Saturday in Singapore told the media that he is preparing three-time African champions Nigeria for 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying matches against the Benin Republic and Lesotho, rubbishing claims by a journalist on social media that he wants to quit the job.

Enyimba and home-based national team player Stanley Dimgba has stated that he wants the Nigeria Football Federation to be strict and closely monitor Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr in the area of ensuring that home-based players are not left out in the scheme of things as far as the national team is concerned.

Dimgba said left to him, he would have preferred the choice of hiring another coach who will be willing to work with domestic league stars which he believes will apart from putting players on their toes will also help encourage players to be hopeful that their effort in the league can earn them spots in the national team.

“If our country wants the Nigerian league to develop definitely they must encourage home-based players, they need to find a coach that will look into our league identifying with home-based players because most countries like South Africa, Egypt, Tunisia they have home-based that are playing in their country so definitely we must have home based too so that our league will develop and not just be inviting all those foreign players and you can not encourage home-based.

“If Daddy Rohr will look into our Nigerian league let him stay but if he cannot look into our Nigerian league, I don’t think that he is supposed to be there.”
