Super Eagles and Sparta Rotterdam goalkeeper, Maduka Emiliano Okoye, has expressed his gratitude to German tactician Rohr.

The NFF (Nigerian Football Federation) parted ways with Gernot Rohr yesterday after five years as the coach of the Super Eagles.

Okoye who was a teenager playing for Foruna Dusseldorf II in 2019 got an invite from the Franco-German gaffer to join the Super Eagles camp.

He made his debut against the Samba Boys of Brazil as a substitute for Francis Uzoho due to the injury that happened to him.

Gernot Rohr decided to give the young goalkeeper his debut ahead of the experienced Ikechukwu Ezenwa.

In a tweet, the German born goalkeeper who just signed for Watford wished Coach Rohr all the best.

The 22-year-old has appeared for Nigeria 13 times, keeping 7 shut outs.
