    Our coach will be 69 years old by the next World Cup in 2022.

    I was one of his best supporters b4 and during the World Cup. But I am now of the opinion that his time is up.

    I vowed to sink or swim with him and his team (I even supported him for selecting the much disliked Ighalo). I sunk with them, but now I want us to float again.

    He did well for us. We had a slim chance to qualify for this mundial, but He led us to beat Cameroon and co.

    But that is in the past, and we are now looking to the future.

    Thank u once again Mr. Rohr, but we need a younger, yet more experienced coach with passion and hunger to lead our darling Super Eagles to the next level.

    The good has to go for the best to come.

    At this point I no longer care when some uncultured readers in this forum use abusive words on people with different opinion. I have boldly stated what I believe is the way forward. Only time will tell if my opinion was sound or not.

    Over to you Mr. Pinnick and the NFF big wigs.
