Coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria Gernot Rohr has overruled his chief scout Victor Agali who said the coach already knows the players he will be taking to the World Cup in Russia next year.
Appointed by Rohr to scout for new players ahead of Nigeria’s campaign at the World Cup, Agali said Rohr is not really searching for new players as he plans to build and prosecute the World Cup with the players presently in the team.
Agali made it known in a television programme in Lagos monitored by Owngoalnigeria.com, but Rohr has now revealed that the door is still open to new players , and also revealed why Wolfsburg Victor Osimhen is in his plans despite his lack of game time for his German side.
” We have friendly games lined up next year to try some new players in our team, and also give opportunity to some players who are with us but are yet to be tested.
“More players will come in. The likes of Victor Osimhen, young players, quick players. The door is still open. The list is not done yet. We have the possibility to get 30 players.” Rohr told Owngoalnigeria.com only.
