Super Eagles Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr has finally ruled out the possibility of including former Skipper Vincent Enyeama on his plans for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
The Franco-German tactician said the inability of the former captain of the team to secure playing time had played a huge role in his decision according to New Telegraph.
Speaking with journalists at the inaugural Aiteo/NFF Awards on Monday, Rohr said his main target was to take active players to the World Cup and Enyeama does not fit into that quota.
“He is not playing anywhere, so we cannot take players who are not playing,” Rohr told reporters.
“We are working hard to have the best of our legs taken to Russia and we don’t have the luxury of naming a player that has not been playing in recent time.
“Each time we have a problem, there is always a good answer and I hope it will be the same for the World Cup.
The 35-year-old goalie last played for the first team of Lille on April 15, 2017, when he lasted 65minute on the pitch against Rennes in the Ligue 1.
