Super Eagles Players Reportedly Against Decision To Sack Rohr by insidenaijasblog: 5:49pm On Nov 24
A cross-section of the senior national team of Nigeria have reportedly kicked against the decision of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to sack the coach of the team, Gernot Rohr, Newspremises has learnt.

According to Own Goal Nigeria, the German technician is said to have been told that his services is no longer needed and he has already communicated via text messages to his players wishing them the best in their future endeavors.

Reacting to the news, a senior player in the team faulted the timing of the sack insisting that the players knew what went wrong during the qualifiers that made the team play poorly.

''We are few weeks to camping for the Africa Cup of Nations. Then the tournament and the World Cup playoff. Sacking our coach now makes no sense. We know why we played poorly during the World Cup qualifiers. It wasn’t Rohr’s fault”, he said.

Another player who recently fell out of favour in the squad also had this to say:

"If as a group we decide to be honest many will tell you Rohr isn’t the issue. He did his best to carry all along but some players have people in high places and what they can’t do at their clubsides is what they are comfortable doing in camp. Most times a day to game or even the morning before games”, he said.

A goalkeeper in the same team also shared his view on the decision calling it a poor decision by all standard and like the others warns the NFF of the implications of sacking Rohr now.

” Africa Cup Of Nations is in January. We don’t have a coach three weeks to the start of camping. This is poor timing and the NFF should know this. They know how they divided the team and it showed on the pitch. This is beyond Rohr”, he concluded.

With Oshimen as the #9, we had a chance at Semis, but without him, forget that one, they are in trouble. Ighalo will lead the line again and that aint gonna cut it.

Rohr or no Rohr, this team aint doing nothing and if they are not careful they will not win their playoff and go to the wc.

Sometimes, a true fan is realistic.

Rohr has a strong bond with the players but he's not good for Nigeria at the moment.

Rhor is still our best coach.
It's obvious the team don't want a local coach. They might have insinuated that the decision to sack Rhor is to bring in someone like oliseh to manage the team and they don't want that.

Why is it difficult for Rohr to punish such players Why will he fold his hands till they affect his job...or he thinks Nigerians won't react

It was also alleged that some players organise a se.x party a night before the Cape Verde game....Why can't Rohr punish those players Why fielding one of the names that was reported, if true You punish the players..and if the media asked why you didn't field them..you tell the media they broke camp rules..As simple as that!

If the working conditions is not suitable for you...If you can't operate with free hands...Then quit NFF job before your professional image is soiled....That's what good coaches do!

Picknic is lobbying for that.

Na only them know the kind atrocities that they are doing under that rubbish coach

Most of the Players are rubbish.

I think some of them are buying their ways into the team.

They know a different coach will never tolerate or keep some of them

What you can't do in your club, you do in the national team, and yet you believe rohr is not the problem?

Do you think someone like oliseh would condone such rubbish?

Those players having sex party before a major match should be suspended from the national team.

They should miss the nations cup, atleast.
No matter the consequences.

That is if we are actually serious about our football.

Said it all and just as I stated a few days ago.

The 'House' is the responsibility of the father figure.
The living conditions and the effect on the children are entirely his responsibility.
He has the power to lay down the law or quit.

It is a Nigerian thing to manage mediocrity and if Rohr has started down this lane it is time to look for a 'real' foreign technical hand.
Because the very essence of a foreigner amongst other things is that he is immune to the 'Nigerian-ess' in us.

That team needs a disciplinarian, a vocalist.
It shows in their body language on the field.

Indeed.
Rohr is responsible for the atmosphere that condones that kind of thing.
If he makes the team competitive enough no one will try such.
But quite a few of them are relaxed in their mediocrity.
The FIFA free week a holiday to them from the rigours of the club duties and serious coaches back in Europe who don't mind dropping a player for a single stick of cigarette.

Mercy after death. So, the players know that they have been playing poorly. Since, some of them have been misbehaving before each of those matches, then they should suffer the consequence of their actions, which ultimately is getting kicked out of the AFCON in the group stage. In those days, the senior players were able to help in imposing a measure of discipline in the younger players and new entrants. Though backed by irresponsible administrators, as claimed, Rohr is too docile. Westerhoff never allowed any power that be, influence his players so negatively. The sex party issue, I believe was not a one off thing. Rohr never made an effort to decamp the players involved. Rather, Awaziem started the match, and Iheanacho came in later.
They have grown too comfortable with the gaffer. Such level of disrespect. Well, just to digress a bit, this may be an offshoot of the level of decadence and impunity in the society.
