Super Eagles head coach, Gernot Rohr, has reacted to the appointment of former Nigerian international, Joseph Yobo, as his assistant.
Rohr mocked the former Nigerian captain, that he heard Yobo has no coaching qualifications.
Naija News had earlier reported that the Nigeria Football Federation, announced the appointment of Yobo on Wednesday.
The head coach of the Nigerian senior national team noted that he was not informed of Yobo’s appointment before it was made.
Rohr while speaking with BBC said: “Joseph Yobo is welcome to the team, of course. I have heard that he has no coaching diplomas, so I will talk to him about this.”
“If what I have heard is correct, I will tell Yobo that he needs to do the training required, to grow as a coach.”
“The NFF has the right to pick one assistant coach for my staff, so they are the ones to communicate the reasons for the appointment, not myself. I was informed by Amaju Pinnick, in a telephone call, before it was made public.”
“I don’t know why Amapakabo has been removed. I worked very well with him. He did a very good job with me.”
“I regret his departure. But since the NFF has the right to take this decision, there is nothing I can do about it.”
