German-Nigerian Right Back Commits To Nigeria – I Want To Win The World Cup With Nigeria


20 year old German born Nigerian defender Fabian Macaulay Senninger says even though his father wants him to play for Germany, he wants to play for Nigeria and he hopes to help them win the World Cup.

The full back who only recently joined German youth side Hannover 96 from Nike Academy said his father wants him to go the way of his uncle and play for Germany, but he wants to play for Nigeria.

“My father is saying I should play for Germany like my uncle, but me myself personal I want to play for Nigeria, there are so many good players in Germany and it’s easy to win the World Cup with Germany but I want to win the World Cup with Nigeria and get the first star”, Senninger said in an interview with Channels TV.

Coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria Gernot Rohr has voiced out his lack of options at right back and if Senninger makes the progress as expected, he could be handed a call up by the German coach of Nigeria.


So far he has made 16 appearances with two goals to his name from his role as a full back or right winger for the B team of the 2. Bundesliga side in the Regional League North., as he continues to progress through the ranks ahead of a possible debut for the first team next year.
