Westerhof made Super Eagles 5th best team in the world without a contract

There’s only one former coach of Nigeria that experts use to measure the success of every other coach that manages the Super Eagles. That coach is Clemens Westerhof. Westerhof may have arrived in Nigeria in 1989 with little or nothing one can call rich coaching record. He was neither a great ex-footballer and so nobody received the Dutchman the way a Johan Cruyff or Pele would have been received but he has not been forgotten since he left the Eagles coaching job in 1994. He was the first person to quali

Rohr: How not to treat a coach

Let me confess that I am not a big fan of Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr. Reasons are simple. He has not in my humble opinion added value to the national team neither has he raised the standard of our play in anyway. Nigeria football has not gained anything meaningful under his watch. I am fortunate to be among a generation of football loving Nigerians who saw the Super Eagles play under Clemens Westerhof from 1990 to 1994, before he left unceremoniously after the World Cup in the United States of America.
