Tayo Balogun, a renowned sport analyst, on Thursday urged Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr, to join the home-based team currently participating in the 2018 Championship for African Nations (CHAN) in Morocco.
“I believe he should be resident in Morocco all through this competition and see the Eagles in action.
“Injury can come to any player and a coach must have a pool of players that can be brought to the team at short notice, ” he said.
The analyst, however, expressed his concern on the quality of opposition the Super Eagles would tackle in the upcoming friendly matches that have been lined up by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).
“By now we should have known all the teams we are playing friendly matches with and why we are playing against them.
“The World Cup is starting shortly after the end of the European league season and some players will need some sort of rest.
“I hope Rohr is taking this into consideration and keeping them ready to play the matches, ” he said. (NAN)
