The father of Wolverhampton Anglo-Nigerian defender Dominic Iorfa insist his son is being punished for opting to represent Nigeria instead of England where he was born.
Iorfa has played for England at various youth levels, and even trained with the senior team when they were short in defence ahead of their Euro 2016 qualifiers tie against San Marino.
Rated as one of the best defensive prospect in the English youth ranks, his father Dominic Iorfa senior who played for Nigeria at senior level says his son decision to pledge his international future to Nigeria cost him his place at Wolverhampton Wanderers.
” I have decided that my son will play for Nigeria and he met with Gernot Rohr when the coach came to see Carl Ikeme, and coach of Wolves Paul Lambert is unhappy over the fact that he has opt Nigeria ahead of England.
” That is the reason why he is no longer a regular at the club, but that won’t make him neither will I change my mind about my son representing Nigeria at senior level, no going back once he turns 23″, Iorfa told Owngoalnigeria.com.
