Uchenna Inya, Abakaliki
Senate Committee on Sports, on Friday told Super Eagles Coach, Gernot Rohr to leave the national team.
The committee said Rohr lacked the capacity to coach the Super Eagles to win matches and tournaments.
Chairman of the Committee and Senator representing Ebonyi Central Zone, Chief Obinna Ogba stated this while speaking with journalists in Abakaliki during the South East Sports Stakeholders’ Seminar, which held in the Ebonyi State capital.
Ogba regretted that the Super Eagles coach has failed to harness abundance of talents in the nation’s football.
He therefore urged the coach to leave the senior national team saying that it is not a must that he continues handling the Super Eagles.
“It is not the issue of everybody wanting him back. But Nigerians are not the managers of Nigerian football; you need to find out whether the managers of Nigerian football, the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) whether they want him back.
“As a good coach, they have given you conditions. The only thing left for you is to accept and reject the ones you don’t like. The ones you like you reject them and the ones you like you accept them. It is not a must that he coaches the Nigerian team.
“I am one of those who believe that the man has finished his time, he needs to go because he doesn’t have something to offer. Nigeria has talented players but he fails to use them to prosecute marches and tournaments.
“Look at what happened in the last World Cup; 10 minutes to go and a coach didn’t know what to do to win that match. For that match alone, I think he should leave!”
