Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr has explained why he can’t marry a Nigerian woman.
The 64-year-old German has been spending more time in Nigeria following his appointment as the technical adviser of Super Eagles in 2016. He quoted language and cultural background as major factors that would stop him from making the big decision.
“My president (Amaju Pinnick) joked about it recently. He said he was going to hand me a Nigerian woman and we all laughed about it,” Rohr told The Sun. “To be sincere, Nigerian ladies are very beautiful and tempting but it is going to be very difficult to marry one. Language and cultural background will be a serious barrier.”
On October 7, 2017, Gernot Rohr and his Super Eagles side became the first African team to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup after a 1-0 win against Zambia.
