Leicester City out of favour Nigerian duo Ahmed Musa and Kelechi Iheanacho will have to secure moves away from their present team to enhance their chances of making the Nigerian team to the World Cup in Russia.
Musa is yet to taste a minute of first team football in the league this season, while Iheanacho has been in and out of the team since his move from Manchester City in the summer. A situation that has placed their future at the club under doubt.
Although Rohr has persisted with the duo, the coach has now advised them to move away from the team to help their chances of making his squad to the World Cup.
” Musa and Iheanacho need to move in January because they are not playing at their present club. They need to move to a team where they will be playing. They will help their chances of representing Nigeria at the World Cup”, Rohr said in an interview with newsmen.
Both players have been linked with moves away before the end of the January transfer window, with reports claiming they are both keen on remaining in England than moving to other leagues.
According to various reports, their high wages particularly that of Iheanacho has proved to be a stumbling block to teams interested in their services.
Their case is however in sharp contrast to that of midfielder Wilfred Ndidi, who has grown into one of the first name on the team sheet of the team in almost all competitions, except if he is rested, suspended or ineligible.
