Rohr Names The Barcelona Goalkeeper Who Is A Role Model For Uzoho, Akpeyi & EzenwaPublished: May 16, 2019
Super Eagles manager Gernot Rohr has revealed that Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-André ter Stegen is a role model for Daniel Akpeyi, Ikechukwu Ezenwa and Francis Uzoho.
The German football tactician was speaking at an awards ceremony held in Berlin on Wednesday evening, where ter Stegen won the Audience award, in which tens of thousands of fans participated via online voting.
Marc-André ter Stegen joined Barcelona in 2014 from local club Borussia Mönchengladbach and has helped the Spanish side win thirteen trophies, including the 2015 Champions League.
''He is a modern day goalkeeper, he is the role model for my three goalkeepers of the national team of Nigeria,'' Rohr said, according to Kicker.
''In addition, it was impressive how ter Stegen with much will, but also modesty has become a major goalkeeper.''
Marc-André ter Stegen did not receive the award in person because he was training with Barcelona ahead of their penultimate match of the 2018-2019 campaign.
Akpeyi, Ezenwa and Uzoho will be included in Nigeria's 23-man squad for the Africa Cup of Nations barring a pre-tournament injury.
