Nigeria head coach Gernot Rohr has rubbished the claims he is not keen on f Ebere Eze.
As reported on Futaa a two weeks ago, Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) boss Amaju Pinnick inspired the pursuit of the English-born Eze to begin a career with Nigeria, subsequent reports in Nigerian media then claimed Rohr requested for the dumping of that mission.
Apparently Rohr told the NFF he wants Reading FC’s Ovie Ejaria over Queens Park Rangers’ Eze. “My attention has been drawn to some statements online that I have described Reading FC player Ovie Ejaria as a better player than Queens Park Rangers’ Ebere Eze and so the Nigeria Football Federation(NFF) should get him in the team immediately,” Rohr said via NFF’s Twitter.
“This is totally false and very disrespectful to both players. I never compare players and I have not asked the NFF to make any approach for the player in question.”
“I will never ask the NFF publicly to approach any player for our team. We have our processes and it certainly doesn’t include sharing such information publicly,” concluded the German.
