Technical Adviser of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr has revealed the best part of Ahmed Musa’s likely return to Russia on the team’s World Cup campaign.
The Nigeria international has struggled to make an impact at the King Power Stadium since moving there from CSKA Moscow in the summer of 2016.
Speaking to News agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday, Gernot Rohr stated that “We are in the transfer window now and I believe he will change team soon”.
Rohr made the remark after confirming the 25-year old is set to return to Russia, Rohr also claimed Musa’s return to that country will help Nigeria win more sympathy at the World Cup.
“Musa is going back to Russia and it is very good news that he will be playing there.
“Musa playing in Russia is a positive development so that we will have the sympathy of Russian fans.
We have seen that when Brian Idowu was introduced in the game against Argentina.
Meanwhile, Dutch club MVV Maastricht have confirmed the loan signing of Nigeria U20 international Kelechi Nwakali from Arsenal.
Nwakali had to be recalled from a loan spell at VVV Venlo due to his lack of first-team opportunities and has penned a deal that will keep him at MVV for the rest of the 2017-2018 campaign.
”Last season we have already seen that Kelechi is a multifunctional attacking midfielder, who has a nose for the ‘final pass’,” coach Ron told the Club official website www.mvv.nl/nieuws/
”He returns in an attacking and dominant way of playing, as MVV wants to use it. He can get away at ’10’, but also as a winger.
”At VVV Venlo he has also shown at Eredivisie that he can be of value for the team in which he plays. At MVV Maastricht, however, he can collect even more minutes of play.
”We know what we can and should expect from him. That has absolutely weighed in our decision to bring him back to Maastricht.”
