FOOTBALL:Don’t sack Rohr now, Okpara tells NFF

Ex-international Godwin Okpara has urged the Nigeria Football Federation to desist from sacking Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr with just three months to the final play-off of the 2022 Qatar World Cup qualifiers.

Okpara is the second ex-internationals – after Victor Ikpeba – to kick against the sacking of the Franco-German with just 34 days to the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations insisting the move will be a disaster.

Rohr once again came under heavy criticism following the Eagles’ underwhelming performance in their 1-1 draw with Cape Verde at the Teslim Balogun stadium in November.

Speaking in an interview, the former defender said now was not the time to sack Rohr.
