Katsina United Chairman Aminu kurfi Balele who is also a NFF technical committee member spoke expansively with reporters on the glaring ineptitude of Gernot Rohr and also the observed dysfunctional processes in the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF).
The chairman stated the fundamental problems he observed within the NFF concerning the 24 man list released for the game against Seychelles.
The chairman categorically said as far as Nigerian football is concerned we don’t have a coach.
He termed the National Coach of the Super Eagles as a coach who has put Nigeria football into unnecessary pressure and frustration because of his incapability to deliver as a coach after meeting up all his demand when he signed as coach to oversees the senior National Team.
“Rohr is an inept coach following his failure to own up to his responsibilities. Making reference to His failure to tender an evaluation report as regards the just concluded world cup Russia 2018.
“Looking at the 24 man list at least five home based players should complement the list playing Seychelles, he cannot invite five home base players against a team like Sychelles , how then does he want the players in the league to grow and have confidence to give their best in their respective Clubs , knowing full well they will not be invited to play for the super Eagles.”
The chairman recommended players like Junior Lokosa of Kano Pillars and the other players who played against Athletico Madrid in the exception of Kelechi Nwakali who made the invitation list but Rohr went on to invite unknown players from second division in Europe.
Balele stated that the coach does not watch our Nigeria Premier League to start with, which he has no interest of any kind when it comes to the NPFL.
The Economist spoke further on the current crisis surrounding NFF within the Federation stating the apparent reasons why the crisis need to come to an end and concluded by saying they have to be very serious over how things are being done so as to avoid the disintegration within the football system.
