Ex-Super Eagles star Daniel Amokachi has said Gernoy Rohr is not the right head coach to take the national team to the best level.
Rohr came under fire following the team’s dismal performance in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier double header against Sierra Leone.
The Super Eagles threw away their four-goal lead in Benin City on Friday and couldn’t score a single goal during the return match in Freetown.
Some Nigerians, including the Youths and Sports Minister Sunday Dare, have made calls to remove the German as the head coach of the national team.
Amokachi is among those who echo this view as he spoke with Brila fm: “The person in charge has been there for five years already but there is nothing to write home about.
“Is he the right person to take the country forward, in my opinion, I don’t think so because five years is a lot a coach to say he’s building a team and then, he can’t give you starting eleven?
“We have also seen some decisions that a right coach wouldn’t have made and a coach that doesn’t take the backroom staffs along end up having big problems,” he said.
Amokachi, who worked as Super Eagles assistant coach, stressed Rohr lacks the ability to change the game from the bench due to a lack of good communication with his back room staff.
“I saw in a lot of games that he doesn’t relate with the bench in most of the time, we heard what happened in Benin that he just wrote a note and gave to the team’s secretary and they made substitutions and even some of the players were furious about it and let their voice heard from the bench.
“But then Nigerians know he’s not the right person to take Nigerian football forward,” he submitted.
