Rohr names 1 Super Eagles star currently shinning at AFCON that people wanted him to drop

Earlier, Sports Brief had reported how Gernot Rohr stated clearly that people wanted him to drop Moses Simon from his squad when he was in charge of the Super Eagles due to his inconsistent performances.

The German football manager was last year sacked as the Super Eagles coach with the Nigerian Football Federation claiming that he lost the control of the dressing room.

Having qualified Nigeria for the 2021 Nations Cup in Cameroon, Gernot Rohr was actually preparing his team for the competition before he was sacked by the NFF.

Following his sacking, the NFF installed Augustine Eguavoen as interim coach for the Nations Cup and the former international has won his first two games.
