Rohr Visits Maja, Kalu at Bordeaux Training Base in France

Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr visited Girondis Bordeaux’s Le Halian training base in France at the weekend to see the duo of Josh Maja and Samuel Kalu, reports Completesports.com.

Rohr, who once played for and managed Bordeaux had a heart warming chat with both players during the visit.


Maja, who has been one of the key performers for Bordeaux in the French Ligue 1 this season has been capped once by Nigeria.

The forward came in as a late substitute in the Super Eagles’ 2-2 friendly draw against Ukraine at the Dnipro Arena last September.


He has been left out of the Nigeria team since then, but looks set to earn a recall from Rohr for the 2022 World Cup and 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

Kalu, who has struggled to to make impact with Bordeaux this season with just one goal in 16 league appearances is a regular on the international scene for Nigeria.

The winger was part of the Super Eagles’ squad that took third position at the 2019 AFCON finals in Egypt.

He has been linked with a move to German club Hertha Berlin currently coached by Germany great Jurgen Klinsmann.

    Nice one my man GR…Real deal for super eagle..much energy bin put in the attacking department,same energy shud b put in Goalkeeping department!!

  • @Omo9ja and his brother (Uncle Segun), Over to you.

  • I dont understand the meaning of this. he has time to visit kalu and maja but he has no time to visit our local league matches to scout for goalkeepers. Please nff should let this man go. super eagles will shock the world with a better coach. i dont see this man doing more than what he has been doing since 2016. no reliable left and right full backs. no reliable goal keppers. allwasys confiuse. Went to the afcon with 6 wingers and two mildfielders. use 23 players in 7 matches. I dont know what nff is doin with this man. ire o. GOD bless 9ja.

      ROHR wants to justify staying in France instead of Nigeria.

      He reside in the same city with Girongin Bordueax Football club

      This is shameful
