I Will No Longer Call Up 'Vacation Players' - Rohr Talks Tough | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f


Gernot Rohr has gone tough – he will no longer call up players he describes as “vacation players” because they have failed to fight for first-team places after two invitations.

“Some players have been invited for two matches but have yet to push for a place in the first team and now we wish to invite fresh players to do what they could not do,” Rohr said.

“The time is gone when a player comes for two matches, collects bonuses, allowances and ticket refund and does not measure up.

“What we need now are players who can fight for first-team shirts and so make the team more competitive.”

The likes of Israel-based midfielder Nosa Igiebor, Kingsley Madu from Zulte-Waregem of Belgium, Rangers goalkeeper Emmanuel Daniel and Jamiu Alimi from Kano Pillars could fall into this bracket of “vacation players”.
