Watford of England forward Isacc Success was handed his maiden call up by coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria Gernot Rohr, much to the surprise of all. However sources close to the coach have revealed the reason why the former Granada man was handed his first call up.
Success has been sparingly used by manager Walter Mazzari of Watford this season, as the coach is gradually easing him into the demands of English football.
Some Nigerians have joked that his call up was inspired by his strong showing last weekend against Manchester United , where he made mincemeat of highly rated defender Eric Bailly.
” It’s funny when Nigerians discuss issues , how can he be called up because he dribbled Bailly? How funny?. His call up was based on uncertainty over the fitness of Moses Simon, who is yet to fully recover from the groin injury he picked up few weeks ago” the source said.
” He earned his spot in the team based on Ogenekaro Etebo’s absence plus the Simon’s case I talked about earlier. You can’t doubt his talent. He will add pace, strength and experience to our strike force.
” You need to watch him at Granada. He has been unfortunate not to have been called up in the past. This is his time to show Nigerians what made Watford splash big on him in the summer”.
