AFCON2021: We Improved Because Rohr Was Sacked — Super Eagles Forward Speaks

 

Super Eagles winger Moses Simon says the ousting of former gaffer Gernot Rohr was a good decision as tactics deployed by interim coach Augustine Eguavoen has improved the team’s game.

Simon says his game under Mr Eguavoen has particularly become better.

“With the previous one, I played based on his instructions, and with the current coach, he gives me the freedom to bring what you have in your club,” Simon said on Friday.

“So, I believe that has helped me and my teammates a lot,” he added.

Simon, however, admitted that every coach has his mentality and how he impacts players.

Speaking on Nigeria’s opening match in the ongoing 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) against Egypt, Simon said it was his best game in the past two years, due to Eguavoen’s tactics.

“The game against Egypt was one of my best games in the past two years,” he said.

Nigeria had defeated their Egyptian counterparts 1-0 in their AFCON Group D clash in Garoua, Cameroon.
