“I am looking forward to getting Frank in the building. We think he is a strong addition to the squad, and we are looking forward to working with him. He is a very dynamic player,”Onyeka told the club’s website.

“Frank plays as an eight in our system, he is very good at getting from box to box and will be valuable to us when we don’t have the ball.

“He has come from the Danish league and was one of the best midfield players in that league, we think he has the potential to develop further. All the coaches here are looking forward to working with Frank and pushing him to a higher level.”

        …Hahaha. We can’t wait… day don break for Onyeka. Make we watch and assess bros now
        … I hope Rohr will not tell him to move to a
        team like Manchester United before he is taken
        seriously like he was telling Simy Nwankwo?

        • Rohr gave him his big break when he was still relatively unknown in mityllands

          • Dr. Drey 5 days ago

            No mind am. Rohr should have told Simy to follow Crotone back to serie B….LMAOOoo…he would be taken seriously there. infact we will forget about Osimhen in Serie A and take him more seriously in Serie B

    At least we can now boast of two natural DMs. And a capable deputy to Ndidi. Congrats Onyeka.

    ….and Onyeka hands over the baton to Onyedika.
    Yes Raph Nwadike Onyedika, 19 year old defensive midfielder. I just watched the kid play against Glasgow Celtics and he didnt miss a foot. I was surprised his coach had so much confidence in him when I saw him in the starting line up of an AWAY MATCH at Celtic park in the UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE, but by the time he was quickly hauled off in the 80th minute seconds after taking a yellow for the team to prevent a quick counter which may have resulted to a 2nd goal and match winner by Celtic, I knew this one is here to stay. He hardly put a foot wrong all game, tactically aware and disciplined for the position he was playing, very mature in his game and just kept thing simple against a vastly experienced Celtic side. I wouldn’t miss the return leg for anything just to see this kid play again.

    Then I just asked myself, what do these onyibo people have in their clubs that they come here to Nigeria, pick young boys and within 2-3 years, they can play in the UCL without missing their way on the pitch, that our clubs in the homefront do not or cannot have or afford, that has made players who have played 3-4 years in the NPFL not to know where to position themselves on the pitch vs their largely homebased Mexican counterparts…? Arghhh…!

    And some people are under the illusion that there are MANY TALENTS in their so-called league…LMAOOOooo….Yet none can even make it to even the Dannish league in 10 years. Or am I missing something…? And they want Rohr to come and scout their league when hundreds of young Nigerians are springing up like seedlings all over the European football space. Should I become the SE coach today, I’ld rather scout the U19 teams of European clubs and the UEFA youth league, than scout that sham they call their league. Whaaatt….! Midjtilland took Onyeka 3-4 years ago and developed him to a €9m valued player….now they have unleashed Onyedika after 3 years of development without even missing Onyeka. See Good business.

    Welcome to the big stage Onyedika. This is one for the future…our eyes are on you from now on.

    Make oga loquacious SPORTS minister nor focus on in main duty of developing SPORTS in Nigeria o, make he sidon with hungry player agents and be plotting Rohr’s downfall. Foreign borns and foreign based are taking over almost all aspects of our sports…..Our entire Olympics team looking like USA team B. They should sit down in their big executive chairs in their offices and do nothing about developing sports on the Homefront. God don kuku bless us with millions of diasporans who will help us cover our domestic sporting shame.


    • Dr. Drey 5 days ago

      We need a total overhaul of our youth SPORTS development in Nigeria. Sunday Dare the SPORTS MINISTER should sit his damn ass down and start getting his damn job done ASAP. He talks damn too much.

      European clubs will come here pick 16-17 year olds and develop them to world beaters in a space of 3 years. 20 NPFL clubs cannot develop players that will qualify them for the CAF CL and CAF CC group stages. Shame of a nation…!!!

      That Kaizer cheifs boy that got a red card iin the CAF CL final was a real small boy….a real 22 yr old real aged boy developed from KC’s academy. I can bet no player in the NPFL is less than 30yrs of age…REAL AGE……shame

      • No naaaau, my brother Drey… Na ROHR fault oooo LMAO

        • Dr. Drey 5 days ago

          It is o. It is his fault that they are failing in their own assignments. In an era when NONE of our teams could qualify for major tournaments thanks to the uselessness of the FA, the only man that has done so even with an unprecedented 2 games to spare, despite him and his players being owed their emoluments for 2 years is their headache. They will not sit down in their offices and face their own business. The MANY TALENTS they have in their leagues that 20 clubs cannot discover to help them qualify for the group stages of CAF competitions, it is Rohr that should come and help them discover them to come and “rub minds” in the SE. Shame on all of them….!

      Spot on

  • As much as I appreciate the fact that we are having a lot of dm players being discovered for the national team, eg ndidi, onyeka, I would like to suggest that we also search for players who can be dynamic in mf. When I watch European and south American midfielders I see how mobile their dmf are. Take kante, casemeiro, rice, etc these are dmfs that are very mobile and good on the ball. They compliment their teams by doing the defensive work and also helping launch attacks or even counter attacking.
    Here in Nigeria, we mostly have a defensive player who is stationary in front of the back four and only joins attacks during setpiece play. The other midfielders are the creative players.
    We should look for players who are good defensively, creative and pacy in midfield.
    We have such players eg obinna nwobodo. Alhassan yusuf, ifeanyi Matthew etc but out super eagles managers aren’t looking at them. Instead they are waiting for olise, ejaria and lookman to switch allegiance to Nigeria, which may never happen.
    Lets look inward and discover these players ourselves and make our team stronger.
    I don’t believe that all these players can be bad.

  • @Sportsfan I agree with you bro… Especially Muazam,ifeanyi Matthew… even nwankali brothers also if they can improve in their club career profile and professionalism
