Super Eagles Head Coach, Gernot Rohr has debunked the fake news making rounds that he asked the NFF to get Reading of England star Ovie Ejaria to play for Nigeria at all cost, reports.


The Franco-German who spoke through the NFF stated that on no occasion did he grant such interviews even as he urged the press to desist from dishing out fake news, especially if they do not come from him.


“My attention has been drawn to some statements online that I have described Reading FC player Ovie Ejaria as a better player than Queens Park Rangers’ Ebere Eze and so the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) should get him in the team immediately.


“This is totally false and very disrespectful to both players. I never compare players and I have not asked the NFF to make any approach for the player in question. I will never ask the NFF publicly to approach any player for our team. We have our processes and it certainly doesnt include sharing such information publicly.


“Furthermore, I think there must be restraint in press statements purportedly quoting me and my person in terms of interviews. I share a very good relationship with the media in Nigeria but this must not be abused to the extent of misquoting me and making wrong claims about my person,” Rohr concluded.
