Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, has warned that only wives and children of his players, would be allowed into the team’s camp during the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
Rohr stated this during a press conference in Uyo on Friday.
According to the German, the measures are aimed at avoiding distraction and instill discipline in camp during the World Cup.
“I will do like other teams, but only families of the players will be allowed to see their husbands. Their children will be allowed also, on Sunday after our first match on Saturday. Families of the players are free to see their husbands, not Russians girls or ‘professional girls’.
“Our disciplinary measures have to be stronger while in the camp. Players are not allowed to see other girls, except their family members after the game. They can even eat with us if they so like. Each player has his room, no problem for family members, they are free to come,” he said.
Rohr is expected to name his final 23-man squad to the tournament, after the friendly match against England on June 2.
