Super Eagles assistant coach, Imama Amapakabo will not sit on the bench when the team face Tanzania in an AFCON qualifier in Uyo today.
The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) have strenuously denied an order by Gernot Rohr that the Enugu Rangers coach stays clear of the national team.
However, even though Rohr has yet to formalise this decision, it has been gathered Rohr will stick with his decision not to work with Imama.
“No matter what anyone will say, Rohr has made it clear he does not wish to work with Imama. You will not see him having any serious role to play with the team and today, he will not sit on the Eagles bench,” a top source informed.
Imama rejoined title chasers Rangers on Wednesday for a rescheduled league game against MFM FC.
Rohr has three assistants who have accompanied him from Europe – a fitness trainer, a video specialist and a technical adviser.
