Nigeria Rohr Warns Amrouche's Departure Can Motivate Libya

Abuja, Nigeria, October 11 - Nigerian coach Gernot Rohr believes that the coach of Libel Adel Amrouche and his sudden withdrawal from the team could motivate their rivals even more ahead of a crucial 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualification. The match is going to take place on Saturday.

Amrouche ended as the Libya coach just days before clashes in Uyo, southern Nigeria, over unpaid wages. But the German manages Rohr has warned of complacency. Rohr said, "The coach can change, but the players and his assistants are still there so it will not be an easy game because they changed the coach. His guidance to the team is still there to motivate them."
