Rohr Speaks Again On Ighalo’s Recall To Super Eagles Squad

Super Eagles boss Gernot Rohr has again reiterated why Al-Shabab striker Odion Ighalo could make a potential return to the Nigerian national team.

Despite the array of attacking talents in the squad, the former Burkina Faso manager revealed the former Manchester United striker could still make a return to the national team.

Speaking in an interview on Elegbete TV, the German tactician revaled the players could benefit from the experience of Ighalo.

When asked why he wants Ighalo back, Rohr said: “The answer is simple. The answer is when you look at the age of all the players that you speak about, they are all young, and also we need experience.

“And if, for example, Odion Ighalo will play with us- I don’t know if it’s possible for the moment, but perhaps if he’s coming back, I think players like Osimhenn and even Kelechi Iheanacho could have a big help in the presence of Ighalo to learn, to progress to see his professionalism.

“He’s a great professional, a big example for everybody, and he’s also a great goalscorer.
