Ahead NPFL Resumption: Rohr Urges Improved Security At NPFL Match Venues



Super Eagles Manager  has prayed the Nigerian Football Federation  to ensure the provision of adequate security around match venues on NPFL matchdays.

  The  former Bordeaux tactician who recently renewed his contract with the NFF has been mandated to monitor players in the NPFL Restart as part of efforts to improve the league however the 66-year-old  has called for a beef up of security as he wouldnt want to throw his security out of the window again.

Rohr was a victim of pickpockets during  the Aiteo Cup Final between Enugu Rangers and Kano Pillars at the Stephen Keshi Stadium in Asaba, Delta State two years ago as Valuables like smartphone and wallet containing credit cards and immigration documents were among the items stolen from former Etoile Sahel gaffer.

Asked if he will request for extra security from the NFF since he will be going around league centers to monitor players, Rohr said: “I hope so. I have lost my phones several times when I went to watch league matches. But now I hope to have the best security. Nigeria’s reputation when it comes to security is becoming better and better now.

Even on the Coronavirus pandemic, there are fewer cases recorded in Nigeria or Africa as a whole as compared to Europe or America. There has always been fear for Africa when it comes to the pandemic. But I am happy with the way it has been handled so far.


I see that they resist the virus very well and the security has improved. The government has put a lot of effort into making it better. I hope we will not witness what we have witnessed in the past again. What we need now is good discipline during this moment. You don’t hang out with other people all the time. You should comply with the government directives during the lockdown,” Rohr stated
