Gernot Rohr reveals plans to ex-striker Odion Ighalo retirement! Know about his married life, children and net worth
The Super Eagles manager Gernot Rohr has revealed plans to lure ex-striker Odion Ighalo back to the national team from retirement.
Similarly, the China-based forward opted to bow out of international duties with Nigeria after the 2019 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Egypt and the Franco-German tactician insists will cause concern to his team. But the manager Gernot believes he has what it requires to talk the 30-year-old striker out of international retirement.
“We have to work hard for the success of a new goalscorer,”
Similarly, he added,
“Of course, we have some new strikers that you know already but Ighalo is such an experienced and aesthetic striker that we are going to miss him. I still have a very good relationship with Ighalo, but I want’ him to rest now and get over his injury and I would talk to him about his retirement. Even if I have to go to China, I would go and talk to him.”
Gernot Rohr and his Mortal Sin
When Nigeria played against Madagascar Gernot was definitely in a holiday mood. As he had won two matches without sweating tears and blood. So, he thought that he could breeze through the third match against the ‘weakest’ team, without obeying a fundamental rule in competitive sport but never underestimating any opponent.
Similarly, he went ahead to disrespect Madagascar and dented the hard-earned reputation of one of Africa’s most accomplished and successful football countries as a consequence. And, he took an avoidable and unnecessary gamble that backfired badly.
In the interview he showed no regret or remorse for his faulty technical decisions, instead, with a ‘holiday’ smile on his face, looking unperturbed, he said that what mattered the most was that Nigeria qualified for the next round.
