No Wingback Role For Chelsea Moses In Super Eagles, Rohr Confirms Preferred Choice


The coach of the Nigeria senior national team Gernot Rohr has ruled out playing Victor Moses as a wing back for Nigeria, when they take on Algeria on the 12th of November in Uyo.


Moses who missed Nigeria’s first World Cup 2018 qualifiers against Zambia, the 2-1 win in Ndola is among the new faces called up by the manager for the Algeria tie.

This season the Nigerian has flourished in a new role as a wingback under the 3-4-3 system of manager Antonio Conte, but Rohr confirmed in a chat with that his preferred style for the Algeria game means there will be no spot for a wing back.

” We don’t play the Chelsea way, against Algeria we won’t play like Chelsea, so we might necessarily not need a wing back. On the flanks we have Ahmed Musa, Moses Simon and Alex Iwobi, Victor Moses is part of them” He said.

“The idea is to put out the best team with the best formation for the Algeria game, although we intend to maintain most of the players who started the game against Zambia. We will build from there”.
