The Gaffer Rohr arrived Nigeria in 2016. In his inaugural statement, he categorically stated that only the best of Nigerian players, who are regular in top leagues would see invitation to the National team.
Everyone who saw Rohr’s body language understand that the no nonsense Franco-German-Nigerian Tactician meant business.
Ever since, we have witnessed a growing wave and sporadic improvement in the performance of Nigerians Globally.
Within this period we have witnessed the emergence of super Nigerian stars like Samuel Chukwueze, Victor Oshimen, Joel Aribo, Umar Sadiq, Onuachu, Anayo Iwuala, Austin Oladapo, Ndifreke Effiong and still counting. etc.
The successful coach who miraculourly qualified Nigeria to the last World Cup and AFCON picking up a prestigious bronze cup is believed to be the next big thing in the Hall of Fame yet the best is yet to come.
