Rohr opens up on why he dropped Onazi as Super Eagles vice-captain




Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, has finally addressed rumours claiming that he has dropped Onazi Ogenyi, as the vice-captain of the team.

There are speculations  after Onazi allegedly had a fight with captain, John Mikel Obi, just before the start of the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

Addressing the media on Wednesday, Rohr who is yet to use the Trabzonspor midfielder at the tournament, explained that he has one captain and several vice-captains in his squad. “What I have already said to some of your colleagues (journalists) is that it’s not true.
What’s happening is that we have one captain and several vice captains‎. There’s one condition to be vice captain. The first condition to be vice captain is to play, if you’re on the bench, the captain is coming out like it happened in our last game and Onazi is not in the game, he can’t be vice captain.”he said.

He continued: “We have several vice captains. Onazi was not on the pitch. So I cannot say Onazi is the vice captain when he is on the bench. If Ahmed is on the bench, Onazi is on the pitch but Balogun is on the pitch he is the vice captain. We have one captain and committee of players who can be vice captain,”
