Rohr talks too much – Sports minister


Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, has taken a swipe at Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr, saying he has diarrhea of the mouth and calling into question his suitability for the senior national team job.

Dare trolled Rohr on Tuesday during his visit to the Super Eagles team B preparing to trade tackles with the Mexico national team.

Expressing disappointment at the Franco-German’s alleged neglect of the Home-based players, the minister accused the coach of talking too much and dereliction of duty, calling on his employer, the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, to hold him (Rohr) to their agreement.

His word, “His attitude towards home-based players is unacceptable, it is negative to our football development in this country. I call on the NFF to call him to order. I call on the NFF to hold him by the content of the letter of his contract, but beyond that, he needs to shut up and do the work for which he was hired to do. He talks too much.”
