Super Eagles’ Coach, Gernot Rohr has appointed former international striker, Victor Agali as one of his scouts ahead of their campaign at the World Cup in Russia next year.
Rohr confirmed Agali’s appointment in an interview with a French based radio station while discussing his plans for the World Cup with Nigeria after their 4-2 win over Argentina.
The coach didn’t mention the specific area Agali will help him in scouting, but it for now looks like he will lead the search for a top striker as back up to present first choice forward, Odion Ighalo.
Agali and Rohr have known each other since his days in Germany when he played for Hansa Rostock and also. Schalke 04 before moving to France to join Nice.
It was at French Ligue 1 side Nice that Agali worked under the tutelage of Rohr and since then they have maintained their relationship.
Rohr watched Agali’s team, AS Racine, in a Nigeria National League game last season.
