Former Super Eagles boss, Gernot Rohr said, he’s not surprised with how the team is performing, after he was sacked.
Rohr lost his job with the Nigeria Football Federation back in December, following dismal performances from the players.
The boys has since turnes the corners — winning all their Group matches at the 2021 African Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
Rohr, in an interview with Ouest France, said he’s not surprised with how his former side have played and he ripped them to go all the way.
”Nigeria did not surprise me (their performance), “Rohr told Ouest France.
“It is for me the favourite after the group stage. This is the team with the most legs, the most efficient.
“They know each other very well. It makes me happy to see them fulfill the contract even if you have to be wary of direct elimination matches, it’s completely different.” he said.
Rohr who led Nigeria to a third place finished in last edition, however warned the team against complacency.
“The team must be careful not to take the easy way out. I think they can handle the pressure. It’s still a young team but it has maturity. Some have made the World Cup in Russia.” He concluded.
