Gernot Rohr, the head coach of Super Eagles has said it's very hard for him to leave Nigeria because he is loved by Nigerians.

But the German who recently led the Eagles to a third-place finish at last month’s Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt admitted that there’s a section of Nigerians from whom he “doesn’t feel this love.” The 66-year-old also made claims that “one category” of people didn’t show him love especially after the AFCON.

“We have difference between Francophone countries and Anglophone countries but I didn’t have any problem adapting (in Nigeria) because I was welcomed by everybody, not only in the team but the staff, and also from Nigerians,” he said in a recent interview.

“When I go out, I feel this love, I feel it everywhere. The only people I don’t feel this love from, there is only one category especially after the AFCON, and you know who it is. But everywhere, if it is here or in other places, I feel this love, this is a reason for me, which makes it very hard to leave because there is human relationship which is important also.
