Super Eagles’ coach, Gernot Rohr on Wednesday took another dramatic decision in his preparation for Friday’s match against Seychelles, by shifting training from 4pm to 4:45 at Stephen Keshi Stadium, Asaba.
Footballlive.ng reports that so soon after shocking journalists and fans by dropping the Eagles’ usual recovery process in the gym on Tuesday and cancelling morning training on Wednesday, Rohr moved the much-awaited evening session forward by 45 minutes.
The Eagles’ press unit confirmed the development on social media but no reason or explanation was given for the move, which startled many journalists, who complained that the development would affect their deadlines of sending news reports to their various offices.
However, the Eagles’ pres corps apologised for any obstructions the new timing for evening training would have on their fans and the media, even as they confirmed that the session will still hold at Friday’s match venue.
The Eagles media department stated: “Training now starts at 4.45pm, not 4 pm as earlier announced. Venue remains unchanged. Our fans and the media should take note.”
