Rohr Confirms Positive Talks With Father Of Chelsea Defender Aina & Russian Nigerian Idowu Over Playing For Nigeria


Coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria Gernot Rohr has opened up a line of discussion with the duo of Anglo Nigerian Ola Aina and Russian Nigerian Brian Idowu over playing for Nigeria.


The duo are both full backs born abroad with Idowu eligible to represent Russia while Aina is already a full youth international with England after playing for them at different age levels.

However Rohr who is keen on bolstering the options of the Super Eagles in the full back positions says he has held talks with the duo, and will travel to see them later to conclude talks.

” I have plans to visit Aina and his father again in England very soon and Idowu in Russia as well. I’m interested in these two players because they have the quality to make the Eagles great” He said.

” When I spoke with Aina’s father he was so cooperative and reasonable but he wants his son to be given more time to decide”.
