Super Eagles Mobility Style Of Play Have Changed – Coach Sinclair

Former Super Eagles chief Coach Monday Sinclair has pointed out that the traditional mobility style of play in the Super Eagles has changed.
He made this statement when chatting with the sports editor of The Newswriter sports, penultimate week, at liberation stadium Elekahia, Port Harcourt. According to the elderly coach who had reared many football talents in the shores of Rivers State, the mobility style of play the Super Eagles are known for is no longer obtainable, pointing out that this practically was shown in the open in the just concluded FIFA South Africa 2010 world cup, where players are stagnant leaving opponent players outplaying them in the midfield, thereby causing lapses in the game against the Super Eagles.
He maintained that football today has gone beyond the stage of one maintaining one’s position in the field of play, stressing that the moment the match starts, the responsibility of maintaining each position in the field of play becomes a collective responsibility. He noted that players like Carlos could leave their defence position, after contributing upfront will always come back to claim their position.
He queried the rationale behind players not being mobile as to make it easy for the entire team to have an early goal. Coach Monday Sinclair who discovered the likes of Finidi George, Richard Owobokiri, Peter Rufai and many retired international football stars, claimed that the moment a player reflects the current standard of mobility play in his football career, he will be the man for any team in the world, no matter the style the coach of that team may introduce to the player.
He further revealed that because Nigeria has lost its mobility style of play the wings are not even working. This brings us to asking questions of where are the Segun Odegbemis, Adokiye Amiesemakas and the likes, adding that even the midfield in the days of Christian Chukwu, players like Late Mudasuru Lawal were always seen virtually everywhere in the pitch. Hence the ever Green Eagles made great exploits. ###
