Watching Eagles Play Under Rohr Is Like 94 All Over Again- Celestine Babayaro


Former Nigeria international Celestine Babayaro has praised the Super Eagles style of play under new manager Gernot Rohr saying it is provoking memories of the glory days of Nigerian football.


Since his employment as coach of Nigeria, the Franco-German coach has won all three games he has handled as coach, starting from the 1-0 win over Tanzania to the 2-1 and 3-1 win over Zambia and Algeria respectively.

Babayaro in an exclusive chat with said the success of Rohr in the three games he has handled has proven right, the assertions that foreign coaches are the best for Nigeria.

” The performances of the team under Rohr is a strong proof that foreign coaches work best for Nigeria. There’s an identity to the team and how they play. It’s like watching the 94 Eagles all over again”, he told

” It is not rocket science but the team has evolved under him. They play with a whole lot of confidence and above all defensively they have the mentality of the German defence. Very mean”.
