Coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria Gernot Rohr has ruled out the prospect of a recall for John Ogu despite his fine form for Israeli side Hapoel Be’er Sheva.

Calls for Ogu to be recalled back to the Nigeria senior national team owing to his form for his club both in the Israeli league and the Europa league. But it appears Rohr is not convinced of the quality of the 27 year old.

Speaking at the media parley of the team ahead of Sunday’s World Cup qualifiers game, Rohr revealed that the highly rated defensive midfielder who was voted as the best foreign player in Israel last season is not among the best players in Nigeria.

” We have the best players with us here in the team for the game against Zambia . John Ogu isn’t one of them” Rohr said.
