Obiajulu Joel Nwolu

The Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, has warned Super Eagles Head coach, Gernot Rohr, over his treatment of home-based players, asking him to shut up and do his job.

Recall that Rohr had delegated the coaching of the home-based Super Eagles to the Technical Director of the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, Austin Eguavoen, for this weekend’s friendly against Mexico, in the United States, noting that he was recruited to coach only the ‘A Team’.

The Sports Minister while on a visit to the players on Tuesday, ahead of their departure to the US on Wednesday, told Rohr to sit up. He said, “His attitude towards home-based players is unacceptable, it is negative to our football development in this country. I call on the NFF to call him to order. I call on the NFF to hold him by the content of the letter of his contract, but beyond that, he needs to shut up and do the work for which he was hired to do. He talks too much.”
