Yobo Isn’t Good Enough To Be Rohr’s Assistant In Super Eagles – Mansur Tells NFF
Former coach of Warri Wolves Mansur Abdullahi says the decision to make Joseph Yobo the first assistant to Gernot Rohr isn’t paying off as he the former Super Eagles captain isn’t fit for the job.
Yobo was appointed as assistant coach to the German coach following the decision of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to part ways with Imama Amapakabo two years ago.
His position was fixed as second assistant with another coach to work with Rohr as first assistant, the delay in employing a substantive first assistant saw Yobo step up to the role on temporary base.
However, Mansur believe it isn’t working as Yobo isn’t trained to be a coach terming his appointment as one which was made possible by the fact that he is a former footballer, which he said doesn’t mean he will be a good coach.
“The reason Yobo was appointed assistant to Gernot Rohr was because is a former star player and captain, but being a former star player doesn’t necessarily make a good coach.
So, Yobo can’t give Rohr the technical help he needs to succeed with the Super Eagles because he doesn’t have any coaching training to be a good assistant to Rohr,” Mansur was quoted as saying by Leadership.
