National Team: Bosso Rohr Issue is Refusal To Use Local Players

Rohr whose contract renewal with the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF is presently an issues in the country’s football has not hidden his preference for foreign based players.

He added that only few local players have had opportunities to train with the Eagles, as majority of the talents have been overlooked.

Bosso applauded Rohr for improving on the fortunes of the Eagles but questioned why he has refused to take along some of the local players.  He added that the decision by the NFF to ask the Coach to henceforth reside in Nigeria is a step in the right direction as he said Rohr would have more time to visit Nigeria Professional Football League venues.

The Nigeria Football Coaches Association President, also noted that the players too will be motivated to give their best because they would be mindful of the fact that the Eagles technical adviser is watching them.
