The future and chances of home based players in the team of Super Eagles has been clearly explained by the coach of the team Gernot Rohr.

Rohr who has been under fire from some section of the media over the lack of inclusion of Nigeria Premier League players in the Super Eagles, since taking over as coach revealed his local assistants have the duty to scout the best talents for him in the league.

He said Imama Amakapabo and Salisu Yusuf have both been mandated to send him videos of all the best players in the Nigeria league before a decision will be made on their possible inclusion.
“Our objective is to have young players. Players who are motivated, players who like their country and are honoured to represent their country. For the local players, I have my assistants, Imama (Amakapabo) who sends me videos of all the best players, which is why I am happy to have him in my staff”, Rohr said.

“Even when I don’t see a lot of the games, the chief coach Salisu Yusuf is on hand to give me important information. I listen to them and together we do the work because I cannot be everywhere. In the game against Algeria, we had five local players. I saw them in Spain and my assistants recommended them. I trust my assistants and I believe we have a good staff”.
