Head coach of the Super Eagles Salisu Yusuf has explained why coach FC Ifeanyi Uba shot stopper Ikechukwu Ezenwa is enjoying the favour of the technical crew.

Ezenwa’s continual invitation has divided opinion among most football lovers in Nigeria, as he is yet to be given a chance to man the post even when they had goalkepper crisis.

Franco-German Technical Adviser of the team Gernot Rohr who calls the shot has often prefer Chippa United ace Daniel Akpeyi to the former Nigeria U-20 shot stopper in the absence of first choice Carl Ikeme.

Explaining in a radio interview monitored by Owngoalnigeria.com, Yusuf revealed the reason why Ezenwa is in the team despite failing to dislodge the other two goalkeepers.

“Ezenwa has been in the team because we wanted to keep the team together [he was a member of the team since last CHAN]. But it doesn’t mean he can’t be changed, he told Lagos Talks 91.3Fm.
