The Super Eagles head coach, Gernot Rohr has advised Ngeria ex-international and former captain Joseph Yobo to get a coaching licence to enable him succeed as a coach.
The German gaffer said he was not informed of Yobo’s appointment before it was made.
Speaking with BBC, Rohr said, “Joseph Yobo is welcome to the team, of course. I have heard that he has no coaching diplomas, so I will talk to him about this.
“If what I have heard is correct, I will tell Yobo that he needs to do the training required, to grow as a coach.”
“The NFF has the right to pick one assistant coach for my staff, so they are the ones to communicate the reasons for the appointment, not myself,”
“I don’t know why Amapakabo has been removed. I worked very well with him. He did a very good job with me.
“I regret his departure. But since the NFF have the right to take this decision, there is nothing I can do about it.”
Yobo has the record as one of the highest capped former Nigeria internationals and represented the country in different World Cups and African Nations Cups.
He is expected to be on the bench when the Eagles host Sierra Leone in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier next month.
