We need a fresh direction – Oliseh asks NFF to sack Rohr

Former Super Eagles captain, Sunday Oliseh, has urged the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to sack Gernot Rohr.

This follows a 1-0 loss to the Central African Republic in their 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifiers.

Karl Namnganda netted a late winner at the Teslim Balogun Stadium on Thursday, with the Wild Beasts’ only shot on target.

The three-time African champions struggled to break CAR’s defence at the Teslim Balogun Stadium and Oliseh has questioned Rohr’s tactical approach in the game.

“It’s disgusting the level the coach has taken our football to,” Oliseh told the Punch.

“I watched the game and we didn’t have a definite pattern and a philosophy of how we play. I dare ask, ‘What he has achieved in five years with these talented players at his disposal?’

“Since his appointment, this coach has been paid $55,000 per month, the sum of $2,640,000 by a country where the U17, U23, the Super Falcons and Super Eagles are threatening strike for unpaid wages. Put that in perspective for a moment, our football is not the same as it was. We need a fresh direction before it’s too late.”
