AFCON

Victor Anichebe Want Rohr To Name Wilfred Ndidi As Super Eagles Captain

Former Nigeria international forward Victor Anichebe want the coach of the senior national team of Nigeria Gernot Rohr to hand the captain arm band to Wilfred Ndidi in the absence of Ahmed Musa.

Rohr has confirmed that Ahmed Musa won’t play any role in the Super Eagles upcoming AFCON 2022 qualifiers against Benin Republic and Lesotho respectively meaning William Troost Ekong will be captain of the team.

Anichebe has however urged the coach to hand the armband to Ndidi who isn’t among the three captains of the team as named by Gernot Rohr last year because of his on field abilities.

Reacting to a training picture posted by Ndidi on social media portal Instagram, the former Everton forward called him captain and urged the coach to hand him the band.

“ Double engine making us proud. My captain any day. You deserve the band bro for your ability to be at your best. You’re my captain with Musa missing”, he posted.

The wishes of Anichebe will be a tough one to grant as Rohr named the trio of Ahmed Musa, William Troost Ekong and Leon Balogun as captain last year before the 4-4 draw against Sierra Leone in Benin city.
