Rohr best coach I’ve played under – Iwobi
Super Eagles forward, Alex Iwobi, has picked national team coach Gernot Rohr ahead of former Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, as the best coach he has played under.

The Everton star also expressed delight about a potential extension of Rohr’s contract after the Franco-German agreed new terms with the Nigeria Football Federation last week.

Former Arsenal star Iwobi was handed his Gunners senior debut by Wenger in 2015.
He has since played under Unai Emery, Carlo Ancelloti (Everton) and Sunday Oliseh, who handed him his Eagles debut, in a 2–0 friendly defeat to DR Congo in Belgium, in 2015.
“I currently play under Carlo Ancelloti whom I have a lot of respect for, I have respect for Unai Emery and Arsene Wenger too. Even Sunday Oliseh gave me the chance to make my national team debut but I actually really enjoy playing under Gernot Rohr,” Iwobi said during an Instagram interview with the Super Eagles media team.
“I feel like he (Rohr) gave me much freedom to express myself. So, I will say Gernot Rohr is the best coach I’ve played under.
“As much as I have been with the likes of Ancelloti, Wenger, and Emery. I actually have the best time with Rohr.”

Iwobi added that he was delighted with reports that the Franco-German would extend his contract with the Eagles.

“For me, it is a blessing to hear the news of Rohr’s contract extension because I personally felt he brought out the best in me football-wise and I enjoyed playing under him.
“And for the team, the results speak for itself. We are blossoming very well as a team and we are getting the results.

“So for him to sign a new deal is good news.”
