A former board member of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Christopher Green, has slammed Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr, and accused him of causing damage to the football in Nigeria.

In an interview with ESPN on Nigeria's performance in the recent games, Christopher Green said,

“To most Nigerians, to continue to see the Eagles perform this way gives a lot of heartache.

“Our football is suffering. Rohr has done a lot of damage to our game because the Super Eagles is Nigeria’s flagship in world football.

“We need the best for our team at every time, no sentiments. For the first time, we can see the majority of journalists, commentators, and a cross-section of Nigerians agreeing that the Super Eagles have not improved over five years with Rohr in the saddle.

“Can’t our football administrators in the NFF see that the ship is sinking? The signs are ominous and the air is delicate. It is not late to change.”

The Super Eagles coach has been under several criticisms over the country's performance at the 2022 World Cup qualifying match.
