Gernot Rohr Expresses Concern Over Sporting Gijon Defender Elderson Echiejile


The left full back spot of the Super Eagles is still a thing of worry for coach of the Super Eagles Gernot Rohr, who is keen on having more options before the start of the AFCON 2019 and resumption of World Cup 2018 qualifiers.

Rohr in a chat with lamented the struggles of regular left full back Elderson Echiejile at his club Monaco before his loan move to Spanish side Sporting Gijon on transfer deadline day.

The Franco-German coach of the Super Eagles is worried that he might not be match fit when the Eagles regroup for competitive games later in the year.

His worry can also be extended to the fact that Echiejile deputy Kingsley Madu is also struggling to nail down a permanent shirt at Belgian side Zulte-Waregem.

Madu has been sparingly used by the Belgian league leaders in league games, although he has featured in almost all of their games in the domestic cup.
