Former Super Eagles striker, Jonathan Akpoborie has stressed the need to demand more from Super Eagles’ handler, Gernot Rohr.
Akpoborie told brila.net that although Rohr has been able to rescue the Super Eagles from a state of failing to qualify for the Nations Cup to securing qualification with a game to spare, the nation deserves more in terms of pattern of play of the team.
“He’s not really a bad coach and at the same time he’s not really the best, but we must give it to him because he was the one that took super eagles from the level they where before to where they are right now but as a nation, we shouldn’t be satisfied because we are ambitious and we want everything.
If any Nigerian tells me that Rohr is the best or he’s still going to take us forward, I will not believe that because I have studied how they play football in Europe and I have seen where a youth develop into a full professional”, he stated.
Akpoborie went further in highlighting the importance of a very good technical director in the country stating that this would build the foundation for a solid football philosophy for the country.
“In Europe, when you want to pick somebody to be the director of football, the person should put his philosophy down and with this philosophy, you then appoint a trainer.
When you now appoint a coach, the coach does exactly what the director of football has detected because that was why he was employed in the first place.”
Gernot Rohr would lead the Super Eagles to his second major tournament in Egypt having guided the side to the Russia 2018 world cup.
