Former NFF Technical Director, Kashimawo Laloko has hit out at manager Gernot Rohr’s scouting policy following the Super Eagles 2-1 loss to Algeria in the semifinal of the Africa Cup of Nations.
Laloko opined that the Super Eagles were extremely lucky to have qualified for the semifinal of the Africa Cup of Nations, adding that Rohr lacks tactical acumen.
Only one home-based player, Ikechukwu Ezenwa, was named on Nigeria’s roster for the tournament in Egypt, and Laloko has blasted Rohr for breaking a scouting policy which stipulates that at least thirty percent of the players included in the squad must be players plying their trade in Nigeria.
”Why can’t we develop our players here? When the match is over, he will come and collect money, he didn’t do anything.
”The technical committee what are they developing, all the staff in the Federation have academies, is that their responsibility, is that what they are supposed to do? When I say the truth I become their enemy.”
The Super Eagles will later today take on the Carthage Eagles of Tunisia in the losers final in Cairo.
