A former Chairman of House of Representatives Committee on Sports, Godfrey Gaiya, has urged the Nigeria Football Federation to sack Super Eagles Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr, following the team’s outing in the two international friendlies played in Austria.
Super Eagles played a 1-1 draw with Tunisia’s Carthage Eagles on Tuesday, just four days after suffering a 0-1 defeat to Algeria in a similar encounter.
He expressed disappointment that the team did not win any of the two matches.
Gaiya said: “We need another coach that will give us a national team; Gernot Rohr keeps embarking on trials.
“He brings people from nowhere to come and do what they like, and tomorrow, he brings a new set.
“We don’t have a team. We have always advocated for a very competent coach, whether foreign or local because the colour of one’s skin does not give him or her credentials of a good coach.
“A good coach is a coach that can transform our football and uplift our game to enable Nigeria be among best football playing countries. I am particular about what the coach is bringing in to the national team.
“I want to see my national team rated among the best. I know we have players that can do that, but as it is now, we cannot see anything good.”
The former lawmaker urged the NFF to review its contract with Rohr, noting that rewards and sanctions must be part of every contract if positive results must be achieved.
