Ex International Justice Christopher has urged Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr to create his own history with materials from the Nigerian league.
Christopher speaking in a chat with www.brila.net said the coach can only get the best out of the players when he makes it clear how much of believe he has in them just like Keshi did to him while still a home-based player breaking into the national team of Nigeria.
He added that it’s a case of working on the psyche of these players to get the best out of them once they earn the trust of the coach to succeed.
“I’m an advocate of the local players because I am a product of it. That’s why I am still grateful to late Shuaibu Amodu and Steven Keshi of blessed memory.
He has every opportunity to give the young talents the opportunity to do it themselves of course we can try. He the contract he has every opportunity to succeed in the national team.
When I was invited to the national team Keshi told me one thing he said if you should player half of what you played for me in Ethiopia (U20 AFCON), I guarantee you, you will start this match, just go in there and do your best.”
