Rohr: "Nigerian Players Lie About Their Age, That's Why I Hardly Invite Them" by ebusfav: 7:41pm On Apr 14, 2017
Nigeria's Super Eagles Coach, Gernot Rohr, has disclosed how dissatisfied he is with the way players in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL), lie about their age. He further said that's why, he hardly invites any of them to the national team.

The Coach who said this in an interview with Brilla FM said;

“There is an existing problem with Nigeria based players. We cannot tell their real age.

“The door is always open for the best players. The Nigeria League players must prove themselves with the CHAN team first, because at the moment we have a winning team, so the home based players must prove they deserve a place in the team.”

In recent times, Goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa has been the only home-based player invited by Rohr, for the recent games against Algeria and Senegal.

That sounded like an insult regardless. Rohr should be called to order.

That Ademola Lookman playing for Everton would never have played Nigerian league. Too young.

In fact, where I play regular Saturday and Sunday morning football, he is too young to play with us.

That's why some of the local players do fail the MRI test whenever there is an age grade tournament.
Lying about their real age is not limited to local players only but also applies to the foreign players as well. Anyway, it is well Gernot Rohr.
