Nigeria Midfielder, Nosa Igiebor has stated that he’ll turn down future call ups to the Super Eagles if he doesn’t get assurances of playing.

Igiebor, 26, laid into Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr for the German tactician’s disregard and disrespect of the player.


The former Maccabi Tel Aviv player was called up for the 2018 World Cup qualifier against Zambia in October 2016, but he was an unused substitute.


Describing what transpired between him and Rohr, Igiebor said the Eagles Boss ignored him prior the game and also gave no pointers as to what was required of him.


The player, who got his first senior cap in 2011 after his time with the U23s, said he was not comfortable with the cold treatment and suspected something was “fishy”.


He insists he grouse with the 63-year-old Gaffer was because he was dropped to the bench with no assurances and has those resolved to snub future invitations unless the Coach would guarantee him game time.

    Please does this guy Nosa play every week at his club? And who is he to say he won’t play for our country anymore unless he is assured of a place in the pitch, the last time I checked it was only 14 players that could play through the 90 minutes, and Nigeria abound with talents has many players that could easily make that 14 before him, so he should wait for his turn just like he does week in and weak out at his Clubside… No one is bigger than Nigeria…..we wish him well as he has decided to represent the moon nation hahahaa

    Nosa is a good player no doubt, but he should understand that only 11players can play at a particular time…The team is undergoing a revolution and revitalization.. If hes not comfortable with the new set up, he can stay back at his club. So many Nigerian players are even crying to be called up..

    Nosas style of play is slow and lethargic.no coach guarantees a player playing time. Moreover there are far options in midfield than him
