Rohr Demands Two Things From Pinnick ahead of Liberia clash

Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr has called on the President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick to help ensure his players get maximum security due to the Lagos traffic condition.

The German tactician made this known in an interview with Elegbete TV ahead of the team's 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Liberia at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos.

He said: “We are happy to play in Lagos but there are two things that must be better. The first thing is for the traffic, we cannot spend one and half hour from the hotel to the stadium. It’s too long.

“We need better escorts, we need better organization and the roads are full. This is one problem. The other problem is infrastructure, they had a good work on it but it’s not yet on a higher international level.

“Our players are used to playing on very good grass. It’s still not the case. So they are working a lot. We are happy to play on a very good grass. But It’s still not the case. They should play in the best infrastructure like they have in other countries.”
