      And to think Kalu didn’t get a look in at all for the world cup. Goes to show how useless and corrupt Rohr is.

          Haha @ baba k,funny as it is but you could be right.
          A fantastic move for a very good young footballer with a lot of potentials.I think Malcolm was wearing the number10 strip so was easy swap with Samuel kalu.Having said that it’s an honour to be wearing a number10 strip in a new club.
          Kalu your super eagles chances are great with this move.Apparently,Rohr is a big fan having played in the French club for a decade.His eyes is on you now even Salisu can’t stop you this time haha its your time to excel and shine.
          Goodluck.
          God bless Nigeria.

            i agree with you greenturf but am still a bit skeptical about rohr.did he have to wait for bordeux to notice this boy first?

      • Claymaker abi na Haymaker. If you like rebrand yourself as Crapmaker, let me give you one word of advice. Learn to only make contributions that are factually correct. You may find yourself in legal hot water one day.

        There is no evidence to suggest even in the slightest that Gernot Rohr is corrupt.

        If you are still crying from the disappointment of the world cup, then the third mainland bridge and the fishes are waiting for you.

        LEAVE ROHR ALONE.

    Fantastic move. Kalu is a good baller any day.  perfect replacement for injured Simon before the world, but Rohr and corrupt Salisu decided to toyed with us.

  • Guys, did you even read Rohr’s comment about Kalu? For those of you wondering why the coach hasn’t invited to the SE, here’s his view on Kalu in another CS report:

    Rohr also spoke about Samuel Kalu who recently trasfered to Bordeaux from Belgian side, KAA Gent.

    “I saw him play before the World Cup but I selected Moses Simon who I considered a better player,” said Rohr promising to start monitoring him.

    ”He is very fast, he’s a good dribbler, he’s an overflowing winger.He is also explosive.I hope the Girondins will have the satisfaction of seeing him evolve with these qualities.”

    Great move for a promising talent. Rohr knows about him before the WorldCup, but all the players listed in our attack to the Mundial were all more experienced than him. However, moving forward he’s a potential SuperEagles mainstay.
