Emma Addo, the agent to late Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi says new manager of the team Gernot Rohr is currently enjoying success, thanks to the blue print of the former Super Eagles coach.
Rohr has won all of the three games he has handled Nigeria as coach, beating Tanzania 1-0 before following it up with wins against Zambia (2-1) and Algeria (3-1).
” I am very happy that Rohr has picked up the blue print of my brother and client Stephen Keshi, you look at the team only Iwobi and Iheanacho didn’t make their debut under Keshi. The team has Keshi written all over it”. He told Owngoalnigeria.com.
” The central defence pair of Leon Balogun and William Troost Ekong that is now famously called “Oyibo Wall”, was a creation of Keshi, he gave both men their debut for the national team.
” Other coaches took over the team and tried to give it a new identity but Rohr is building on what he met on ground, that was the secret of Keshi’s success with the national team”.
Keshi who lead Nigeria to AFCON 2013 glory died after a cardiac arrest this year was sacked as coach of the Nigerian team for allegedly applying for a coaching job, while still in charge of the Super Eagles of Nigeria.
