Super eagles head coach Gernot Rhor, has amied a dig at his new assistant Joseph Yobo by revealing that the former Captain has no coaching qualifications.
Yobo was appointed assistant to Rhor by the NFF yesterday and here’s what the eagles boss had to say.
“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. I was informed by Amaju Pinnick, in a telephone call, before it was made public,” Rohr told journalists.

“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 have the right to take this decision, there is nothing that I can do about it.”
On Yobo’s appointment, the Franco-German did not mince his words : “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.”
Yobo’s first assignment as assistant coach of the Super Eagles will be against Sierra Leone in an Africa Cup of
Nations qualifier next month.
