With many football followers still asking questions on the exclusion of home-based players from the Super Eagles setup by coach Gernot Rohr, Heartland Football Club of Owerri head coach Fidelis Ilechukwu has disclosed that foreign-based players don’t respect local coaches, Bestchoicesports.com.ng reports
Ilechukwu worked as an assistant to Imama Amapakabo and Kennedy Boboye during their time as the head of the national U-23 team. Unfortunately the Olympic Team failed to qualify for the 2021 summer Olympics football event.
The former MFM boss has now disclosed that the foreign-based players in the squad at the time gave the technical crew serious headache.
The experience manager claimed the players didn’t respect the coaches and they hardly take instructions.
“Most foreign players don’t respect local coaches, they want to do their own thing. Most are brought into the team late even if the Coach had been training with home-based players,” he told Brila.
Ilechukwu, Imama Amapakabo, and Kennedy Boboye had since being released by the Nigeria Football Federation after the team’s dismal performance at the 2019 U-23 Afcon in Egypt.
