ABUJA

Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr believes the sudden resignation of Libya coach Adel Amrouche could motivate their rivals even more ahead of a crucial 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier on Saturday.

Amrouche quit as Libya coach just days before the clash in Uyo, southern Nigeria, over unpaid wages.

But German handler Rohr has warned over complacency.

"The coach can change, but the players and his assistants are still there, so it won't be an easy game because they changed the coach," Rohr said.
