Checkout What Gernot Rohr Had to Say On Joseph Yobo’s Appointment as His Assistant
The Super Eagles head coach has faulted the decision of the football body to replace one of his assistants with the Nigeria legend.
Rohr aimed a dig at the former Nigerian captain, saying that he heard Yobo has no coaching qualifications.
However, despite the NFF decision, he has urged the former Super Eagles captain to get a coaching licence to thrive on the job.
Speaking with BBC, Rohr said, “Joseph Yobo is welcome to the team, of course. I have heard that he has no coaching diplomas, so I will talk to him about this.
“If what I have heard is correct, I will tell Yobo that he needs to do the training required, to grow as a coach.
“The NFF has the right to pick one assistant coach for my staff, so they are the ones to communicate the reasons for the appointment, not myself. I was informed by Amaju Pinnick, in a telephone call, before it was made public.
“I don’t know why Amapakabo has been removed. I worked very well with him. He did a very good job with me.
“I regret his departure. But since the NFF have the right to take this decision, there is nothing I can do about it.”
Yobo made 101 appearances for the Super Eagles, making him the country’s joint-record caps holder with goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama.
