What Rohr said about Mikel Obi making Nigeria’s 2019 AFCON squad

Nigeria head coach, Gernot Rohr has uncovered that the entryway is as yet open for midfielder, John Obi Mikel, to be incorporated into Super Eagles squad for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, in Cameroon.

Mikel Obi, who is the captain of Nigeria’s national group, has not highlighted for the nation since the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

The previous Chelsea star missed Nigeria’s last five matches against Seychelles, Libya (home and away), South Africa and Uganda.

Yet, Rohr, who had uncovered when he will discharge the rundown of Nigeria’s AFCON squad, said that the 31-year-old will come back to the Super Eagles when he is fit and prepared.

”Mikel was injured, had problems with the knee, he played again and was injured again and he was not available,” Allnigeriasoccer quoted Rohr as saying.

”I am in touch with him and the day he will be fit and ready the door is open for him.

”But you know they have to play at the club, to show us they are ready, it is the same with the captain like other players.”
