Head coach of the Nigerian senior national team, Gernot Rohr, has reacted to the appointment of Ex-Super Eagles defender Joseph Yobo as the team’s Assistant coach.

Rohr aimed a dig at the Ex-Nigerian captain, saying that he heard Yobo has no coaching qualifications.

Press reported that the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, announced the appointment of the Ex-Everton star yesterday.

The German gaffer said he was not informed of Yobo’s appointment before it was made.

Speaking with BBC, Rohr said, “Joseph Yobo is welcome to the team, of course. I have heard that he has no coaching diplomas, so I will talk to him about this.

“If what I have heard is correct, I will tell Yobo that he needs to do the training required, to grow as a coach.

“The NFF has the right to pick one assistant coach for my staff, so they are the ones to communicate the reasons for the appointment, not myself. I was informed by Amaju Pinnick, in a telephone call, before it was made public.

“I don’t know why Amapakabo has been removed. I worked very well with him. He did a very good job with me.

“I regret his departure. But since the NFF have the right to take this decision, there is nothing I can do about it.”

He said he would be more than happy to develop Joseph Yobo as well as other coaches in the country.

Yobo has the record as one of the highest capped Ex-Nigeria internationals and represented the country in different World Cups and African Nations Cups.
