News Gernot Rohr urged to consider home-based players

Super Eagles’ head coach Gernot Rohr has said winning the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) for Nigeria would make him the most excited person.

Former Nigeria international, Raphael Chukwu-Ndukwe, has called on the coach of Super Eagles to consider exploring the abundance of talents in the Nigeria league scene ahead of his contract extension with the Nigeria Football Federation.

Chukwu-Ndukwe advised that the coach should look keenly into the Nigerian league beyond just paying lip service and also see areas where players in the domestic league can be of value to the national team of Nigeria.

“The only thing I can advise to put in his contract is for him to be able to go and watch a lot of Nigerian league too, it’s not only going overseas to go and watch all these players.

“The Professional league in Nigeria, he needs to go there. There is a lot of talent there and he can also get two or three or four players that he can put in the team. We have two or three old players in this team that will leave very soon. So he can find good talents in the Nigeria league not only going to Europe to watch Nigerian players play.”
