Manchester City forward Kelechi Iheanacho favourite position in the Super Eagles of Nigeria is not certain as a top striker according to coach of the team Gernot Rohr.

Rohr while speaking in Lagos was asked about the favourite role of the Manchester City star who lead the line for the team against Algeria, in their last World Cup 2018 game which they won 3-1.
Talks have been about Iheanacho playing in the number 10 position for the team, but the coach says there’s still time between now and when Nigeria regroups for their next assignment to take a decision on his best role.

“It’s still a long time before our next qualifier. A lot of things would have happened. I cannot say who will be our No.9 or No.10. We have our two number nines, Odion Ighalo and Brown Ideye. Of course we have Kelechi who had a good game against Algeria”‘

“Also Victor Osimhen is having a good beginning at Wolfsburg. I spoke with Wolfsburg manager and he said Victor is doing very well. And who says Victor who will be playing in the Bundesliga cannot come and play as our number nine? We don’t know what the team will be like in the coming months.”
