Salisu Yusuf And Imama Confused As Rohr Arrives In Nigeria With Assistants

The role of Salisu Yusuf and Imama Amapakabo with the Super Eagles of Nigeria is complicated as German coach Genort Rohr arrived in Nigeria with his assistants.

Imama and Yusuf were appointed as assistants to Rohr by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), but the German came in with his fitness trainer and technical assistant.

Salisu Yusuf is supposed to be the first assistant to the German, with Imama acting as second assistant as employed by the NFF, but Rohr arrived in Nigeria with long term assistants, Jean Lucs and Nabil.

His coming with assistants was part of the provisions of his contract with the NFF, when he signed his deal to coach the senior national team of Nigeria.

As expected, the German will rely more on his trusted allies, which could reduce the role the Nigerian duo of Imama and Yusuf will have in the team.
