Yobo Must Get A Coaching Licence– Rohr

Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has advised Joseph Yobo to get a coaching licence if he must succeed as a coach , Sports Extra reports.

The Nigeria Football Federation confirmed the appointment of the former Eagles captain on Wednesday as an assistant coach of the national team , replacing Imama Amapakabo – a move Rohr revealed he was privy to before it was announced .

“ The NFF has the right to pick one assistant coach for my staff, so they are the ones to communicate the reasons for the appointment, not myself , ” Rohr told BBC
journalist Osasu Obayiuwana .

“ I was informed by Amaju Pinnick , in a telephone call, before it was made public.
“ I have the responsibility to develop coaches from Nigeria as agreed with NFF . I am more than happy to do that .

“ Joseph ( Yobo) is welcome to the team , of course . I have heard that he has no coaching diplomas, so I will talk to him, about this .

“ If what I have heard is correct , I will tell Yobo that he needs to do the training required , to grow as a coach . ”

Rohr also queried Amapakabo ” s removal , stating that the former Enugu Rangers coach did well during his time as his assistant .

“ I don ’ t know why Amapakabo has been removed . I worked very well with him . He did a very good job with me .
“ I regret his departure . But since the NFF has the right to take this decision , there is nothing that I can do about it . ”

Yobo is expected to be on the bench when the Eagles host Sierra Leone in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier next month .
