AFCON 2021- Ndidi Explains Major Difference Between Rohr’s Way Of Play And That Of Eguavoen
Leicester City and Nigeria international midfielder Wilfred Ndidi has given his opinion on the difference in approach between ex coach of Super Eagles Gernot Rohr and present coach Austine Eguavoen.
Eguavoen was handed the rein in interim capacity with the job of handling the team for the Africa Cup of Nations before handing over to Portuguese coach Jose Peseiro who was announced as the substantive coach of the Super Eagles. He will take over after the AFCON.
The Super Eagles under Eguavoen have so far impressed by winning all of their games at the tournament with a brand of football that many see as the best the team have played in recent years. It has also led to talks of handing the job to Eguavoen on a permanent base.
Ndidi who was a part of the team under Rohr was asked about the major difference in the team to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations under the German and the one at the ongoing 2021 delayed Africa Cup of Nations.
“The difference between this team and the team from 2019 is that this coach gave us the push and freedom to express ourselves”, he said at the pre match conference ahead of tomorrow’s round of 16 game against Tunisia.
