Mr Sunday Dare, Nigeria’s Minister of Youth and Sports Development, has slammed Super Eagles boss, Gernot Rohr following the latter’s ”unfair treatment” of players from the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL), telling him to focus on doing his work.

Rohr, since taking up the National team job has come under heavy criticism for not injecting home based players to the national team.

Rohr, 68 has relied mostly foreign players since he took charge as Nigeria’s national team coach and recently criticized the home based team that will face Mexico in an international friendly at the Los Angeles Coliseum this weekend.


Austin Eguavoen will be in charge of the home based team not Rohr and the Sports Minister has expressed his disappointment.

Rohr signed a new two-year contract last year, and part of the conditions in the deal is for him to include more domestic players in his plan.

But so far, only Enyimba’s Anayo Iwuala has played a part in recent Super Eagles games, with Rohr saying all of Nigeria’s best players are in Europe.

Dare expressed his disappointment with Rohr after he visited the home-based players at their Abuja camp ahead of the trip to the United States.

Dare urged the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to talk with Rohr regarding his behaviour towards NPFL players.

“Rohr’s attitude towards home-based players is unacceptable, it’s negative to our football development & I call on the NFF to call him (Rohr) to order,” Dare said.

“Rohr needs to shut up and do the work of his contract, he talks too much,” Dare concluded.
