Rohr can improve, but he needs better players – Okpara


Gernot Rohr’s tactical genius was on display at the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt, and while not many were impressed, the German didn’t disappoint mostly – and can improve – says former Eagles midfielder Godwin Okpara.

Okpara believes Rohr’s errors are amendable but the Eagles Coach needs to do more with allowing competition in the team.


“The coach did well only few mistake and I believe he is aware of these mistakes so he can rectify it before then.


“If there is competition it will make the team stronger and they’ll go far as a team. If a player knows he has a secured shirt he will not work hard, every player has to fight for his jersey which was the style when we were playing back then.

“There is still small a problem with the defence, there is lack of understanding between our central defenders, If you look deeper you’ll spot the lapses, but I will advice that they get more friendly matches to build understanding in the defenders and entire team.”
