At a time where there are diverging opinions on the suitability of Nigerian Super Eagles coach, Gehnr Rohr to the job amidst issues about his contract extension, one of his former players, Odion Jude Ighalo has lauded the German tactician for bringing stability to the team.
While speaking with ElegbeteTv, the Manchester United loanee extolled the virtues of the national team coach.
“Some people say he’s old fashioned but as long as he’s getting results, who cares?!
Ighalo said that the German tactician may not be the best coach in Africa but ”he brings stability, calmness to the team.”
He stated also that Rohr is like a father figure who made him return to the national team after the world cup something he didn’t want to do at that time.
“Personally, Rohr made me return to the national team after the world cup”
”If not for him I wouldn’t have been the highest goal scorer in the qualifiers and the nations cup and I wouldn’t have won a bronze medal.”
Odion Jude Ighalo scored seven goals at the last African Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Egypt to emerge highest goal scorer after he had emerged as the highest goal scorer in the qualifiers of the AFCON.
