By Richard Jideaka, Abuja :
Nigeria senior team technical adviser Gernot Rohr has told Super Eagles central defender William Troost-Ekong that he must move to a bigger club in a bigger league in Europe to match his soaring form and improve his game, Completesportsnigeria.com.
Rohr who led the Super Eagles to a heartwarming 3-1 victory over Algeria in a Russia 2018 World Cup qualifier in Uyo on Saturday, told Completesportsnigeria.com
"Ekong just have to change club. He must play at a higher level. He wants to go to a Belgium club, but he just has to play at a better level. He just finished a season in Norway, but his game has outgrown the club he intends going to, and I think we have to help him get a club at higher level to improve his game," Rohr tells Completesportsnigeria.com.
"We have to do it quietly because it is not official work of a national team coach, but I know clubs in the higher leagues would be willing to give him offer. Ekong and Balogun have impressed me in their partnership in the Eagles central defence. So we must find ways to help them improve better."
Rohr continues: " I am satisfied with the two central defenders that played against Algeria and I believe they can only improve with time, but I will be going to search and monitor players in Europe to strengthen the Eagles defense ahead of the World Cup qualifiers next year."Unblock the FIFA World Cup with ExpressVPN the #1 Trusted Name in VPN
