Gernot Rohr has revealed that his men will be allowed to welcome their families, Wives and Girlfriends (WAGs) at the World Cup.
But the Super Eagles coach warned that he won’t allow “Russian girls” in their camp, with Mikel Obi’s Russian partner, Olga Diyachenko along with other WAGs are the only women allowed to come visiting on days they are no preparing for games. “Yes, the players can have their wives and family come to visit them at the World Cup. Each player will have a room to himself so the family can come on days when we are not preparing for games or on matchdays,” Rohr said at the press conference. “However, I won’t allow them to have Russian girls, no, no, no. Only captain Mikel who has a Russian partner can come with her.” Rohr and his mean are presently in Uyo preparing ahead next month’s tournament – the Nigerian national team will play a friendly match with Democratic Republic of Congo in Port Harcourt next Monday, before their trip to London for a game with England at the Wembley Stadium on June 2. Nigeria will face Croatia, Iceland, and Argentina in Group D of the Russia 2018 World Cup. “The families can come to the hotel after games but no other girls allowed, no professional masseuse allowed,” Rohr adds.
