Nigeria coach issues “womanising and prostitute ban” at World Cup

Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr has issued a strict ban to his players on womanising during the 2018 Fifa World Cup.

Rohr says he will allow WAGS into the training base but insists they can forget about finding girlfriends out in Russia.

German-born Rohr said: “Yes, the players can have their wives and family come to visit them at the World Cup. Each player will have a room to himself so the family can come on days when we are not preparing for games or on match days.

“However, I won’t allow them to have Russian girls, no, no, no. Only our captain (John Obi) Mikel who has a Russian partner can come with her.”

Rohr was brought in because he has a reputation as a disciplinarian and the Nigerian press reported that his ban on women visiting the camp was on “run girls” which is slang for prostitutes.

They will instigate a strict policy on partying and Rohr has promised they will be far more professional at the World Cup.

It comes after Nigeria’s last World Cup campaign fell apart because of a lack of discipline in the camp and a bitter pay dispute between the players and the FA.

The Nigerian government even called for the national team to be banned for two years and they have gone through a period of turmoil before the emergence of young players including Alex Iwobi and Kelechi Iheanacho.

Mikel is now captain and he admits the last World Cup was a complete mess but Rorh has tried to unite the group and is drilling them hard.
