Ahead of the much anticipated Russia 2018 Worldcup competition in which Nigeria’s Super Eagles is expected to compete with Croatia, Iceland and Argentina in Group D, Coach Gernot Rohr has placed a ban on prostitutes visiting the camps the players will be lodged in.
In the statement released on Monday by Super Eagles media officer, Toyin Ibitoye, it was gathered that the players were already aware of the development. News Telegraph correspondent also learnt reliably, that wives and girlfriends (WAGs) of the players who have been given approval to be with the players would also not go to the camp just anyhow and any day.
Rohr stated clearly those ladies of easy virtues (prostitutes) or any female who has no direct link with the national team players, would not be allowed near the Eagles’ camp as he is making frantic efforts to avoid distractions in the camp.
“We know there are cute girls in Russia who will be all over the place to be around our players but they won’t get close because there will be strict resistance.
“Concentration is crucial at the World Cup and the coach is taking this seriously.”
“They can only come after match days when the players are relaxed. The training after match will be light and before the start of strategic work for the next game, that is the time WAGs will be allowed. They can only visit and won’t be allowed to stay with the team,” the source said.
Gernot Rohr is currently putting finish touches on the provisional list of the team for the mundial which is expected not to be more than 35. Only 23 will eventually make the final list to the World Cup. Super eagles will compete with Croatia, Iceland and Argentina in Group D of the forthcoming World Cup. The team will play three more international friendlies before the World Cup.
