Ndidi: Great Coach Rohr Has Turned Super Eagles Into A Family

Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi has revealed that the strong bond created among Super Eagles players by head coach Gernot Rohr has been one of the key reasons for the team’s success on the pitch.

Since Rohr’s appointment as Super Eagles coach on August 2016, the team has been churning out impressive results.

The Eagles were the first African team to qualify for this year’s FIFA World Cup despite being drawn with Cameroon, Algeria and Zambia.

Rohr has some pedigree, having led French club Bordeaux to the final of the 1996 UEFA Cup (Europa League) where they lost 5-1 on aggregate against a star-studded Bayern Munich side coached by the legendary Franz Beckenbauer.

“He’s a great and wonderful coach,” Ndidi told cafonline.com.

“First thing (with him) is the solidarity of the group and that is really helping the team.

“I can see that everybody is trying to bond, you don’t just think about yourself, but the whole team. We are like a family.”

  • That is good. Viewing themselves as a family is what can help them to achieve their aims in Russia.

    Good 2 hear that they view themselves as one family,nigeria would have reached the finals of U.S.A 94 or even winning the world cup.rancour,animosity,hatred,envy,acrimony and antipathy was brooding in the minds of the players.should anyone go back and watch the first ever world cup goal scored by YEKINI,U would find out that they refused 2 celebrate with him.they even connived with each other 2 stop giving him passes.

    How could you go and celebrate with a person that is inside the opponents’net while talking to himself and making some strange gestures. He was simply in a world of his own and its diffiult for all 11 players to turn the Bulgaria keeper’s net to their celebration ground. Secondly methinks that during the world cup, Yekini was already displaying tiny signs of the psychiatric problems that later became manifest in his later life after retirement (please am not saying this to belittle our HERO please). This is because in camp he was at loggerheads with almost everybody in the team over inconsequential matters. He wasnt in good terms with Amokachi, Siasia and Ikpeba (his closest strike partners). All these connived together to limit our chances at the mundial. However he remains my best striker of all time. May the lord accept his soul. We love you Rasheed Yekini.
