Rohr And Home-Base Eagles: Drawing The Distinct Line Of Responsibility

When German manager Gernot Rohr was appointed to lead Nigeria in 2016, it was emphasized as a condition of his appointment that Rohr would make sure to keep a close tab on players who ply their trade in Nigerian domestic football as well as the European-based players who form the core of the team. However, Rohr’s commitment to this part of his job continues to come under question due to the delegation of head coaching duties for African Nations Championship qualifying in 2018 and now the fact that he will not lead a Super Eagles squad composed exclusively of domestic-based players in an upcoming friendly against Mexico. Owo Sports’ Tosh Michael explains why Rohr continues to be such a divisive figure in Nigerian football.
