    Iheanacho still not a starter in 2nd division? Guy when will you leave to play regular football? Is it at 30? I tire ooo

    No ambition… The guy is so comfortable operating from the shadows… We don’t need unambitious guys in Super Eagles anymore. He has been at Leicester just like Ndidi for over 4years and no serious club is even asking to sign them.

    Everton want iheanacho, i hope it goes well, i am less worried about iheanacho as God has given us talents like burniface and orban. My concern is more of ndidi who can nolonger play 90 min for div 2 team, he is our main midfielder, we lack midfielders etebo clubless, ndidi is expected to guard our midfield in coming ąfcon, i pray God take him to bigger clubs bfore the end of this windows
