Kashimawo Laloko, a former Technical Director, Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), has urged the NFF to give Super Eagles Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr and his assistants the free hand to do their job.
Laloko made the appeal on Thursday, in a telephone interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Okitipupa, Ondo State.
He also charged Rohr to prove his mettle and technical prowess by qualifying Nigeria for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
“The only way Rohr can prove his experience and capability is by ensuring that Nigeria qualifies for the World Cup in Russia.
“The NFF should stop all politics by giving the technical crew a free hand to do their job in order to achieve results.
“Nigerians love football; they need results, not complaints and blame game, that is why the handlers need to cooperate to give Nigerians the desired results,“ he said.
Laloko also charged Coach Salisu Yusuf, to cooperate with Rohr to see Nigeria through to Russia.
He said that Rohr started on a good note when the Super Eagles defeated Tanzania 1-0 during their encounter on Sept. 2 in Nigeria.
NAN reports that Rohr took over the Eagles job on Aug. 9.
