Arsenal Nigerian forward Alex Iwobi has given his thoughts as to why coach of the Nigeria senior national team Gernot Rohr is different from other coaches he has worked with.

Iwobi made his international debut for Nigeria during the reign of Samson Siasia as coach, and the 20 year old has since gone on to cement himself as a regular in the team since Rohr was appointed as coach.

Although Nigeria lost their last game 0-2 to South Africa, Iwobi insist the manager has a way of getting the best of of his players, which has helped them pick positive results in the World Cup 2018 Qualifiers before the loss to South Africa in the AFCON 2019 Qualifiers.

In a chat with Pitchingitblack.com, Iwobi praised the coaching methods of the Franco-German coach, labeling him as one coach who knows how to handle youngsters.

“Our new coach is proper cool,” he says with a beaming grin. “His banter’s a bit different. It’s funny, but it’s different. He’s proper cool especially with the young kids. He’s always talking and trying to help us. Shouting’s not really his style. There’s so much young talent in Nigerian football at the moment, it’s a really exciting time.”
