AFCON 2019: Nigeria weak, rely only on juju, says Libya coach

Ahead of next month’s double header 2019 AFCON qualifiers against the Super Eagles of Nigeria, Libya coach, Adel Amorouche believes the 3-time African champions are a far weaker team compared to South Africa and rely only on voodoo, AOIFootball.com reports.

Amorouche was speaking after Libya earned an impressive goalless draw away to South Africa, adding that his boys will roll over the Super Eagles, even if both legs are played in Nigeria.

“Believe me I prefer to play Nigeria than South Africa because I have the experience to play against them. South Africa is a fantastic team and have fantastic players and it’s not easy to play against them.

“For me, I’m ready for Nigeria; if they want we can play both games in Nigeria; they believe in juju and we believe in God,” Amrouche said.

Nigeria will next face Libya on October 10 with the return leg four days later, with the fixture likely to decide on who picks the ticket for next year’s Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

Rohr should stop trying to get our players angry and pumped up by sponsoring articles like this. If this does not make Nigeria beat them silly in both games, I don't know what will.

The same underwhelming Rohr that disappointingly hopes to get 4 points from the Libya matches? How did we get so low that our coach cannot guarantee 6 points from Libya?

Bros 1Naija, what do you mean? How is our coach responsible for this - one way or the other?

Chief Obong, I agree with you! Why is our coach not talking of winning Libya both both home and away; thereby, collecting the entire six points? Anyway, it's one game at a time. Win the first game first and plan for the second one.

As usual crooks are still ranting because their fraudulent players weren’t selected by rohr. Anyway, a coach that qualifies in a group consisted of Algeria, Cameroon and Zambia should be a able to stand their ground against any African team. Also, no matter how confident ROhR is of beating Libya he dare not become arrogant by publicly saying it

Lamenting about Juju versus God in 2018. Where was his god when his country was turned into rubbles by bunch of so-called Infidels. What a wasted mind!

That is simply what they tell themselves to justify taking black slaves.

How many points did Rohr get from Cameroon, Algeria and Zambia? Common Obong don't allow your dislike of Rohr becloud your ability to see the bigger picture

You have excess time. Some comments,...you just shake your head, say a prayer for the persons family and move on.

Adel Amrouche: I was only joking about Nigeria and juju
Calvin Emeka OnwukaSeptember 9, 2018
https://www.aclsports.com/adel-amrouche-i-was-only-joking-about-nigeria-and-juju/


Libya coach Adel Amrouche caused quite the stir during the post match press conference following his side’s 0-0 draw with South Africa in Durban. Amrouche had accused Nigeria of believing only in Juju.

However the former Kenya coach who has experienced playing against the Nigeria Super Eagles many times says that he was only joking. In an exclusive interview with http://www.ACLSports.com he says “I was only joking, my brother. How can I say (believe) Nigeria relies on juju? Please tell me does Ahmed Musa need juju to play football?”

The comment has not gone down well in the hierarchy of Nigeria football clearly and it has surprised Amrouche. “The Nigerian federation president has called my federation president over this and I am genuinely surprised. It was nothing serious at all. I respect Nigeria’s football a lot and Stephen Keshi, God Bless his soul, was a brother and best friend to me.”

Libya sit top of Group E ahead of South Africa and Nigeria are in 3rd place but only a point separates the three countries. In October is a double header between Nigeria and Libya so perhaps this was a mind games from Amrouche.

Libya team that got a point in Durban, South Africa
Libya have still not been allowed by CAF/FIFA to play matches at home. “As a football person I would rather be playing matches in Nigeria because of the passion of the crowd and the fact that the stadium will be full” Amrouche says with regards to his comment about not minding playing both legs of the double header in Nigeria. He starts to hum the typical Nigeria Football Supporters Club song over the phone line to buttress his point. “We know and love the tunes of the Nigeria football fans, in Durban the stadium was empty and I know it would not be so when we play Nigeria.”

How have his players responded to not playing matches at home. “I tell them that football is simple everywhere with 11 players on each side and the same playing field for all on it at the time. Only thing changed now is that we don’t have VAR yet” Amrouche says. “It is what it is and we have to just concentrate on playing football wherever we have to play. I am happy with the commitment of the players to the cause”.

Intent on proving that he respects Nigeria Amrouche says “I like to have fun and I make jokes a lot but I am genuinely sorry for any offence I have caused with the comments. I like Wizkid and Davido a lot and please how can anyone even think Kanu (Nwankwo) and Jay Jay (Okocha) relied on juju for football? I certainly don’t think so.”

Adel Amrouche is clearly a man who likes to joke. He is also very widely travelled across Africa he seems genuinely surprised that this joke has not gone down well. He is also genuinely sorry.

Only problem is Nigerians have long memories. Only six points over Amrouche’s Libya might make Nigerians forgive and forget this.
