The German gaffer has also maintained that the super eagle, captain John Obi Mikel will continue his role as an attacking midfielder.
There are calls from a section of the supporters that the former Chelsea player should be deployed as a defensive midfielder in Friday’s match against Iceland.
Manchester United manager, Mourinho had suggested that Mikel is a great number six but a bad attacking midfielder or number ten.
Rohr maintained that the Tianjin Teda star has mostly played as a number ten.
”What does he (Mourinho) mean by sacrifice? Etebo played as a number six he is doing very well, Ndidi also played number six, he did very well, perhaps he wants us to play three number six.
”Mikel in this offensive position gives incisive passes, remember against Cameroon we won 4-0, it was exactly the same organization (formation).”
The 33-year-old netted a stunning hat-trick in their opening game to draw 3-3 with Spain before scoring the only goal in a narrow win over Morocco.
Fans have been quick to speculate on his facial hair with the forward spotting a goatee.
Many think that he is referring to himself as ‘the GOAT’ (greatest player of all time) due to the fact he normally takes to the field clean shaven.)
After scoring against Spain, he even celebrated by stroking his beard and that led to speculation he could have been taunting his rival Lionel Messi.
But the player has cleared everything up – revealing it was all a joke with team-mate Ricardo Quaresma.
“This goatee? It’s a joke I had with [Ricardo] Quaresma,” Ronaldo told Sports Illustrated.
“We were in the sauna [before Friday’s match against Spain] and I started to shave and I left the goatee – I said if I score tomorrow I would leave it for the rest of the tournament.
“And it gave me luck, I scored that game, I scored this one, so it stays.”
