Three players of the Super Eagles of Nigeria have in separate chats confirmed to Owngoalnigeria.com that, Gernot Rohr has made a positive impact on their mentality when it comes to games.
One of the players said unlike past coaches of the team, the German coach gives them lot of confidence when to games, and usually advised them to enjoy themselves on the pitch.
” He talks to every player. He doesn’t discriminate, to him every player is the same but the last two coaches of the team were not like that” He told Owngoalnigeria.com.
Another player said, he doesn’t give too much instructions on the pitch, which has allow the players the freedom to express themselves properly during games.
” One of our former coach, doesn’t stop talking from the start of the game till the end he is talking. It confuses us a lot but Rohr is not like that, he give us the freedom to play our game bar little corrections”.
Funny and strict when he has to, was the sentence one of the players we talked to use in describing the German handler.
” You can’t have a friendly chat with him without laughing, he is very funny but strict when it comes to passing on team instruction”.
