A member of the Technical Committee of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Garba Lawal, has criticized Super Eagles head coach, Gernot Rohr, over his handling of Standard Liege midfielder, Uche Agbo.
Agbo was dropped from Nigeria’s squad for the 2018 World Cup, after failing to play a single competitive game for the team, despite getting called up in the past two years following Rohr’s arrival.
Lawal also expressed his displeasure with Rohr, for not running his final list through the NFF Technical Committee, before making it public.
“Agbo was poorly managed by Rohr. You can’t call a player for two years constantly and not even give him few minutes to express himself. Not even in friendly games. That’s is sad and it’s a case of poor man management.
“I got to know about the World Cup 23 man list like every other Nigerian. Rohr didn’t run it through the Technical Committee as contained in his contract. This is not the first time he is doing so,” Lawal said in a chat with OwnGoalNigeria.
