Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr has reportedly paid a visit to the duo of Josh Maja and Samuel Kalu at Girondins Bordeaux’s Le Halian training base in France at the weekend.
According to Completesports, Rohr, who once played for and managed Bordeaux, had a heartwarming chat with both players during his visit.
Only once has the Super Eagles capped Maja, who is one of the key performers for Bordeaux in the French Ligue 1 this season.
Maja was introduced as a late substitute in the Super Eagles’ 2-2 friendly draw against Ukraine at the Dnipro Arena last September.
The doors have been shut on him since then, but might probably earn a recall from Rohr for the 2022 World Cup and 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
On the other hand, Kalu, who has struggled to make an impact with Bordeaux this season with just one goal in 16 league appearances, has been a regular on the international scene for Nigeria.
The winger was part of the Super Eagles’ squad at the 2019 AFCON finals in Egypt where Nigeria came third.
