Retired Wolverhampton Wanderers goalkeeper, Carl Ikeme has been contracted by the Nigeria Football Federation and manager Gernot Rohr to help scout for new goalkeepers for the national team.
According to Rohr in an interview with SportingLife, he said: “The NFF has also graciously accepted my proposal to give opportunity to Carl (Ikeme) to help us find other good goalkeepers of Nigerian descent. So we are still searching for good players in all positions in the team.”
Recently, Peter Rufai criticized Rohr for handing the goalkeeping duties to the inexperienced teenager Uzoho of which he has requested the 1994 World Cup star to recommend quality alternatives.
“Yes some former players who have shone with the national team before has freedom and liberty to help the team if there are problems.
“Peter (Rufai) can call me at any time to give me useful advice because I know him very well and he knows me too. We can speak about it if he has a better candidate.”
Uzoho has started all the eleven matches played by the Super Eagles in 2018, conceding 12 goals and keeping 4 clean sheets.
