Why I Recommended Moffi To Nice – Rohr


Former Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr has revealed that he recommended Terem Moffi to OGC Nice in the January transfer window .

Moffi joined Nice from Lorient for €30m on deadline day last month.

He scored 12 Ligue 1 goals for his former club.

“It is a pleasure to speak about Moffi, I invited him to the Eagles for the first time two years ago, he is a very talented player, even stronger physically like many other strikers in Europe’s big teams,”

“Mentally he is very good as well, good discipline, good character, great fighting spirit, good shooting and fantastic headers.
“And he is going for €30m to my former club Nice, can you imagine that?

“Some people at Nice asked me about him before this offer and I gave them my honest recommendation with a good conscience about him with regards to his qualities because he is very strong. Several clubs wanted to sign him. He had seven offers in January and I think it is a good move for him.”

Rohr handed Moffi his Super Eagles debut in 2021.

Moffi made his debut for Nice in the 3-1 win over  Marseille on Sunday.

He will be open to open his goal account for Nice when they face Ajaccio on Friday.
