Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, on Wednesday, doubted the “suitability and competence” of Super Eagles Coach Gernot Rohr and threatened that the “needful will be done”.
Dare, who made this known in a tweet complained about the low performance of the Eagles in the last two matches of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
He wrote, “The performance of the Super Eagles from their last two matches calls to question the suitability and competences of Technical Adviser, Rohr. Nigerian football deserves better. The needful will be done. Apologies to all football lovers.”
The Eagles played a goalless draw against Sierra Leone at the Siaka Stevens Stadium, Freetown on Tuesday.
Rohr has been under fire since the Eagles’ disappointing outings at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium and later at the Siaka Stevens Stadium with football lovers insisting that the Franco-German be sacked as the national team coach.
President of the Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick, had said the home match was his worst result as president of the federation and had charged the team to make the nation proud in Freetown but Rohr and the team were unable to deliver on Tuesday as the away match ended in a goalless draw.
