Rizespor of Turkey midfielder Nosa Igiebor says he will no longer honour calls to represent Nigeria following the way he was treated by coach Gernot Rohr before the game against Zambia in Ndola.

Igiebor was called up by Rohr for the game against Zambia after a two year absence from the team , but didn’t get to play as Nigeria secured a 2-1 win over Zambia in Ndola in their first World Cup 2018 Qualifiers game.

The former Real Betis midfielder said the Franco-German coach didn’t tell him why he didn’t play in the game, rather the coach played players he feels he is way better than.

” Yes I granted an interview to a radio station in Nigeria, it’s true i’m no longer interested in playing for Nigeria as long as Rohr remains the coach. He disrespected me”, Igiebor told Owngoalnigeria.com.

” He (Rohr) treated me like i’m nobody, I won’t honour any more calls unless if he assures me that I will play. I can’t watch players i’m better than play ahead of me”,
