I have gotten more defenders- Gernot Rohr


Super Eagles Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr, has disclosed he has found new defenders for his team.

He said the defenders would help tighten up the Super Eagles defence as the team gets ready for both the 2019 Nations Cup and 2018 World Cup qualifiers.

Rohr revealed this in Gabon, where he is presently working as a television pundit at the on-going Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON.

According to him, “It is an interesting challenge to have a new team, young team and to build a team with players who really have the spirit of the country and want to play by giving their all, but don’t really bother about material things because they want to play for their country.

“We have a good captain with experience and we have found some defenders to make us stronger at the back. I think the spirit and harmony of the team is very good, but we know the important times come now.”

Alhough the Franco-German gaffer didn’t reveal the names of the players he has added to the team’s defence, he had, few weeks back, disclosed that Dutch-Nigerian full-backTyrone Ebuehi, would be available for Nigeria’s next match.
