Former midfielder Edema Fuludu has questioned Gernot Rohr coaching ability, after Super Eagles unconvincing showing against the Central African Republic.

Rohr came under fire from Nigeria Football fans after Super Eagles shocking home defeat to the Wild Beasts last Thursday.

The three-time African champions later avenged the defeat three days later by beating the Raoul Savouy’s side 1-0 in Douala.

Despite Sunday’s victory, Fuludu is not convinced and insists Rohr is not responsible for the victory, but players.

“Personally, I have said it repeatedly (that) Gernot Rohr is not responsible for our victory. It is the players, who have put in so much individual and collective efforts,”

“So, it has been luck all along. For five years, he (Rohr) hasn’t been able to impact as a coach should. He has no tactics at all.

“He has just been cruising, and we don’t have a team. He just brings them (players) together, and that it is because Nigeria has quality players. It is the players’ efforts and nothing else,” Fuludu told NAN.

Fuludu earned eight caps for Nigeria between 1991-1995. He managed Warri Wolves, after retirement from active football.
