Super Eagles Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr, has shattered claims he is under any pressure to pick a particular player or set of players for the Nigeria ahead of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations Group E clash with South Africa on Saturday.
Speaking at a media parley at the Ibom Le-Meridien and Golf Resort in Uyo yesterday, the Franco-German coach stated that he and his assistants are in charge of team selection and will continue to do so without anyone’s influence.
“Nobody is telling me how to do my work; I work independently with my assistants. There is no pressure on me to field any players.
“We have good players from Nigeria on this team, I have some fine players. We have good players who can play well for this country. No pressure on me, the team is open to all good Nigerian players.”
