Rohr On Why He Snubbed Bordeaux New No 10 Kalu : Moses Simon Is BetterPublished: August 07, 2018
Nigeria manager Gernot Rohr has explained the rationale behind his decision not to invite new Bordeaux number ten Samuel Kalu to the Super Eagles, saying that Moses Simon is a better winger.
Having recently completed a move to Bordeaux, the Super Eagles boss has not ruled out the possibility of calling up Kalu for the upcoming 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying matches.
''I never selected him. I saw him play, but in his team, I took another, which is Simon Moses. He is in my group since the beginning, 2 years ago. He is also a winger, fast. He's almost the same, but I found him better than Kalu,'' Rohr said to girondins4ever.com
''We have many fast wingers in Nigeria. Before there is a plethora of attackers, quality. This boy could not yet join our team. But now we'll monitor him.
''Simon Moses was in my group. He was injured, he is the only injured player I had before the World Cup. He played with Kalu in La Gantoise. He missed the World Cup because of a muscle injury. ''
Moses Simon joined Spanish outfit Levante on a five-year deal on Monday, shortly after he was declared surplus to requirements by Gent.
