According to reports gathered by Owngoalnigeria.com newly appointed coach of the Super Eagles Genort Rohr, has outlined his plans on how he intends to fix up the Super Eagles defence.

The German coach will arrive Nigeria tomorrow ahead of Nigeria dead rubber AFCON 2017 tie against Tanzania, but has already outlined the one area of the team he think needs urgent attention.

Rohr during the week cited the defence of the Nigerian team as the one area of the team that needs urgent attention, pointing out that for Nigeria to do well at the Russia 2018 World Cup qualifiers, fixing up the defence is key.

We gathered the German wants Leon Balogun, a cultured German in central defence as opposed to the right full back role he has been playing for the national team since his debut in 2014.

Balogun is predominantly a centre back at Mainz 05, Rohr believes he will quickly understand his instructions which could be similar to the way he plays at his German side.
