Former Super Eagles striker, Julius Aghahowa, has said Gernot Rohr cannot make the Super Eagles better as a coach.

Speaking on SuperSport programme, Naija Made, Aghahowa said Rohr has been unable to tap the abundant talents in Nigeria.“If you talk of the players, the talents are there, the players have the capabilities but we are not having the coach to bring out the best in these players.

I saw a couple of players that were not supposed to be in that team that day,” Aghahowa said.

He also spoke about the Eagle’s lack of creativity in the midfield. “We don’t have a playmaker. I think somebody was wearing the playmaker’s number, 10, but when you saw the play he could not carry the ball, drive with the ball, and go and meet your opponents before releasing the pass.

“You are giving a pass when there is no one marking you so how do we progress from this pattern of football that we are playing. I don’t think that we can move forward like this?”
