Super Eagles’ Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr, has again reiterated his delight following last month’s change of guard at Confederation of African Football (CAF) as Malagasy FA President Ahmad Ahmad dethroned long-time president Issa Hayatou, after 29 years in power
Rohr expressed his satisfaction with the change of guard, which he noted would guarantee a fair game between the Super Eagles and the Indomitable lions of Cameroon in August's Russia 2018 FIFA world cup qualifier.
“It is important that CAF’s organisation is objective. And we are happy that CAF has a new leader, so nothing can be manipulated and we are also happy that the NFF president, (Amaju Pinnick) has been elected into the Executive Committee,” said Rohr.
Rohr however, did not dismiss the strength of the Indomitable Lions, insisting that Coach Hugo Broos’ recent issues regarding his unpaid wages will not affect the team as they are expecting a tight game.
“Cameroon is always a strong team and we also have to be stronger to beat them. I don’t believe the issue with their coach (Hugo Broos) will be a problem for them because these problems are everywhere in Africa.
“The game will be decided on the field by 22 players,” Rohr concluded.
