Rohr is an average coach – Green

Former Technical Committee Chairman of the Nigeria Football Federation NFF, Christopher Green has disclosed that Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr is an average one and does not deserve a new contract.

According to Green, Genort Rohr has failed in his duties and should be shown an exit door because he has done nothing new all along as well as not surpassed the achievements of the previous home-based coaches who have managed the team.

“What we gave Rohr and what we got in return is a poor showing at the World Cup and a third-place at the Nation’s Cup which I think we did not deserve.

“We should have at least gotten to the Quarterfinals at the World Cup to show that he is an expert, an expatriate who is better and bigger than anyone found in Nigeria,’ Green told journalists.

Green also lamented against the number of years it takes the Franco-German to build the national team.

“How many years will it take him to build a team? Do you have to build the team every time for a single tournament?

“With all due respect, he is an average coach, he is as good as any home-based coach and so, why don’t we look inward if we want the kind of result Gernot Rohr has given us in this country?

“We can look inward and give that person the coaching role, and of course, I do tell people if you want to get these Nigeria coaches to handle the national team, you will not pay them the kind of money you are paying Rohr,

“We have Finidi George and Emmanuel Amuneke these are people I know they can help our football to grow”. He said.
