Super Eagles Coach Holds Talks With Chelsea Wonder-Kid Over His International Future…
Posted On 02/06/2017
Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has confirmed that he has held talks with Chelsea soccer whiz kid, Ola Aina. The talks aim at convincing the right fullback, who is an ex-England U20 international, to forget about the possibility of playing for the England senior side and pledge his future to the Super Eagles
Rohr told goal.com: “It is normal to have this situation, when we have very good player [like Ola Aina] who can pick two teams. We always leave the door open to young talents.” Despite been born and raised in England, Aina visited the Super Eagles Crown Plaza Hotel camp in London shortly before the friendly against Senegal on Thursday, alongside his father. While the Nigerian Federation and Rohr are keen on the ex-England U20 international, the defender has not yet made a decision whether or not he would make a commitment to the Nigerian senior team.
Aina has recorded five first-team appearances for Chelsea this season.
