A member of the Super Eagles of Nigeria says the current success the Nigeria senior national team is enjoying under German coach Gernot Rohr is down to his man management skills and not tactics.
Since the appointment of the German coach the Super Eagles have won the three games they have played under him in convincing fashion, especially the weekend win over Algeria.
While most Nigerians are giving Rohr credit over his tactics and technical inputs in the games he has handled the team. A member of the team thinks otherwise.
” It’s not all about tactics, every other coach that I have played under in my stay in the national team is very good when it comes to tactics. Baba (Rohr) has a different approach when it comes to handling players”, he told Owngoalnigeria.com.
“The indigenous coaches who have handled the team lord themselves our us but Baba (Rohr) has a different method. His ways of communicating with players makes one feel we are both complementing each other.
” That said he talks to almost everybody, jokes with all and doesn’t make mockery of his players in public. When Austin Okocha came into our close door training, instead of ignoring him like most local coaches would do, he addressed us in front of him, duly giving him the respect and praises he deserves”.
