Former Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has blamed Taiwo Awoniyi’s inability to gel with the team in Cameroon for a lack of team coordination at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.
The German tactician was impressed by Taiwo Awoniyi’s performance and explained why the Union Berlin striker did not fare well in the tournament
Remember that the Super Eagles were defeated by a depleted Tunisian team after Austine Eguavoen’s team raised many people’s expectations with their performance in the group stage.
“Nigeria was underwhelming, losing in the Round of 16 to a weakened Tunisia.”
Rohr said regardless Taiwo Awoniyi from Union Berlin played a very good tournament.
“You could see his promise, but there was still a lack of team cohesion – he hadn’t been there long.”
