    I don’t understand the mentality and direction of our players

    Yeah I guess the zeal to contest in the best leagues is not priority for our players anymore….A young active player goes from Turkey to the MLS that is regressive but what do we know. I guess he has his reasons. I can’t pin point any soccer player who became a household name after playing in the MLS except for retiring superstars. Goodluck bro.

    Does this boy even love his career?

    The thing is… If the offer is good and reputable clubs are not coming for him coupled with being always snubbed in SE callups, should he not take it? The notion that you have to play in Europe to be good ain’t always true… Don’t we have MLS soccer teams players turning out for USA national teams and Mexico national teams? What’s important is that a player should always play and not be with Watford, Everton and Man United but warming the bench. He can still improve but at this age, he has almost learnt 85% of what he needs in his position in football. Ghana who brushed us aside had Yao Yeboah, a midfielder from an MLS team… he used to play at Celta Vigo… for the Black Stars handlers, they have seen enough of what they require to invite him… We are taking jibes at him for going to MLS but we have in playing in Turkey, doing well and teams courting him from across the Atlantic in USA, but those involved with SE will rather have a Shehu Abdullahi who could not cut it in Turkey and had to go to Cyprus making our squad instead. Let’s dwell on the things that matter… Callups are based largely on who you know. Imagine Eguaveon snubbing Dessers who plays for Feyenoord, and doing well but went for Onyekuru at nations cup who can’t even progress with his career. When it broke out that they wanted to now limit number of foreign norms, I know Eguaveon is part of those clueless committee because he did it to Dessers and Ebuehi when Awaziem was clearly unfit and unwell to fo to Nations Cup. We go still learn.
