The former Nigeria U-17 and 20 captain was once again snubbed by manager Abdullah Avci in his match day squad for the game against Osmanlispor. As a matter of fact he is yet to be involved in any match day squad for the team in all competition since the start of this season, where they have played 7 games.

Unconfirmed reports has it that the 19 year old has been demoted to the B team of the Turkish side and isn’t even training with the main team, who are presently top of the table in Turkey.

His constant invitation to the senior national team at the expense of other players who are regular at their club side is currently one of the trending topics in Nigeria, with respected Turkish journalist Adnan Adem questioning the criteria used in selecting players in Nigeria.
