The former Green Eagles Captain, Segun Odegbami has compared Nigeria super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr to other coaches, says if he was in charge of the Nigeria Football, he would have sent him home, noting that he is too relaxed.
He stated this during an exclusive interview on Channels TV.
Odegbami says Nigerian players do not need someone who will just sit quietly and not say a word.
He stated; “If I was in charge of Nigeria football, Gernot Rohr would have been on his way. I’m sorry that is a bit harsh, but you could see how he selected players, particularly in that match against Madagascar. We could have been out of this competition by now, because of his selection of players for that match.”
“See coaches like Jurgen Klopp, Jose Mourinho, they are the 12th players. They are by the side of the field, they are directing players. They are shouting on Referees, they are doing things. That is the sort of thing Nigerian players need.”
“Nigerian players don’t want somebody who will just quietly sit and not say a word. They won’t hear his voice. You won’t help them in difficulty.”
“Our Nature is to be loud, to be compelled and driven to the wall. Our nature is not just to relax.”.
