The chairman of Kaduna United Emmanuel Babayaro has faulted the decision of coach Gernot Rohr to call up Victor Osimhen of Wolfsburg instead of MFM FC forward Stephen Odey.
Osimhen was included by the coach in the list of 25 players for the Super Eagles friendly games against Senegal and Burkina Faso in London later in the month.
The top scorer at the last U-17 World Youth Championship is yet to make a single appearance for Wolfsburg since his move to the German side became official when he clocked 18 years old.
Babayaro feels Osimhen should have been left alone to force his way into the first team plans of Wolfsburg instead of handing him a call up, ahead of Odey who has taken the Nigeria League by storm with five goals in the opening round of games.
” I can’t understand the thinking behind Osimhen invitation, yet it appears every one is silent because the decision was taken by Rohr, a coach who can do no wrong in the eyes of some people.
” Rohr is human and can make mistakes as well, and to me the decision to leave Odey out for Osimhen is pure injustice. The outcry would have been at it’s peak if the decision was taken by a Nigerian coach,” Babayaro told Owngoalnigeria.com.
