Recently evicted Super Eagles interim coach, Augustine Eguavoen has disclosed that he was not in support of the decision of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to sack Gernot Rohr.
Speaking on Monday Night Football, the former international revealed that he complained about the timing of Rohr’s departure.
Eguavoen was in the studio with another former Super Eagles star, Victor Ikpeba, who refused to blame Eguavoen for the country’s failure to qualify for the 2022 World Cup.
Ikpeba stated that the NFF should bear the responsibility for the Eagles’ absence in Qatar.
“Eguavoen was not in support of the decision to sack Rohr”, Ikpeba stated.
In agreement, Eguavoen added:
“Yes, I complained about the timing as it was too close to the Africa Cup of Nations.”
The Super Eagles lost a spot in Qatar 2022 world cup after a draw to the Black Stars of Ghana last week Tuesday.
