Katsina united coach, Henry Makinwa has backed coach Genort Rohr over his choice of players for the upcoming international friendlies in October.
”Every coach is different and Genort Rohr has been in the country for years now so, he must be listening to what people say, what the FA are telling him about the players he is bringing into the team and all,” he said.
The Super Eagles, now ranked 29th in the world and third in Africa, will take on the Elephants on October 9 and four days later will engage the Carthage Eagles, who are second in Africa in the rankings.
Both games have been arranged by the Nigeria Football Federation to prepare the Eagles for the next rounds of 2022 AFCON qualifiers, home and away against Sierra Leone in November.
Makinwa also feels like the coach is doing a fantastic job and needs the backing of all football lovers in the country especially with the fantastic players he has been introducing in recent times.
