Eagles coach Rohr should be replaced, says Orji Kalu

The Chief Whip of the Senate and former Governor of Abia State, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu, has said Super Eagles Coach, Gernot Rohr is not good and should be replaced.

The Senator recalled that he rejected the German tactician’s application to coach Enyimba Football Club when he was a governor.

This is as he lamented that Nigeria which has so many talents home and abroad are struggling to qualify for the Africa Cup of Nations and the World Cup.

“In the last five years, we have wasted our time in football. There is nothing new we are doing any longer.

“To see a country with many professional players home and abroad struggling to qualify for the Africa Cup of Nations and World Cup is heartbreaking.

“Gernot Rohr is not a good coach and I don’t understand why he is still managing Super Eagles.

“When I Was Governor, he applied to become employed as Enyimba coach. He was brought to Nigeria by Oscar Udoji but I refused to employ him.

“I am calling on the Chairman of NFF, Mr Amaju Pinnick to wake up and to quickly find a replacement for Rohr.

“We soccer lovers don’t need further dissatisfaction in a game, we have the capacity to make ourselves proud.

“If the problems you have this year are the same problems you had last year, then you are not a leader.

“You are rather a problem on your own that must be solved,” the Senator shared on Facebook.
