Bordeaux attacker, Samuel Kalu has been backed by Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr to come better for both club and country as the 2019/20 season progresses, Completesports.com reports.
Sometimes last week, Bordeaux boss, Paulo Sousa demanded more from Kalu while also expecting the Nigeria international to change his “mental attitude in terms of commitment to training”.
Meanwhile, Kalu has been in and out of the Bordeaux squad this season because of injury, featuring in 17 league games and starting 12 and finding the back of the net just once.
But Rohr during an interview with regional French daily, Sud Ouest spoke about Kalu.
“Samuel [Kalu] is a good boy, he always had an exemplary behaviour in the national team,” Rohr said.
“At the start of the season, he was the best dribbler in Europe, he did good things even if he was not at his position. I have news from him, he had a little injury, I hope he returns to the field soon.
“He has the characteristics of a wingman, the percussion, the technique, the speed, the center in first intension, a good strike, he can play on both sides,” Rohr concluded on Kalu.
