Alex Iwobi has named Nigerian gaffer Gernot Rohr as the best coach he has played under.
Iwobi is delighted after Rohr agreed to a new contract extension with the Super Eagles last week. The Nigerian was handed his senior debut by Wenger in 2015 and since then he has played under Unai Emery, Carlo Ancelotti, and Sunday Oliseh(who handed him his Eagles debut, in a 2-0 friendly defeat to DR Congo in Belgium, in 2015).
“I currently play under Carlo Ancelloti whom I have a lot of respect for, I have respect for Unai Emery and Arsene Wenger too. Even Sunday Oliseh gave me the chance to make my national team debut but I actually really enjoy playing under Gernot Rohr,” Iwobi said.
“I feel like he (Rohr) gave me much freedom to express myself. So, I will say Gernot Rohr is the best coach I’ve played under. As much as I have been with the likes of Ancelloti, Wenger, and Emery. I actually have the best time with Rohr.”
