Super Eagles Gernot Rohr reveals why the Leicester City striker, Kelechi Iheanacho was left , when the German announced a 23-man roster for the upcoming international matches against Seychelles and Egypt.

The former Bayern Munich defender is sending a message to the Super Eagles stars with limited playing opportunities ahead of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, with Iheanacho among the casualties.

Since the start of 2019, the Foxes number eight has accumulated a paltry 56 minutes in the Premier League from a possible 900 minutes, meaning he would have been lacking match fitness coming into the two games.

According to Rohr, he said:

”Kelechi needs to play with his club. He also needs to take advantage of the international break to show his qualities to his new coach,”

”I give him time but there is a danger for the AFCON for those who do not play regularly in their club. The final list for the AFCON is far from being made for anyone.”
