Why I Decide To Make U-turn On Playing For Nigeria After Sacking Of Rohr – Hoffenheim Wonderkid Uche – OwnGoal Nigeria

Hoffenheim highly rated teen sensation Uche Obiogumu has revealed why he honoured a call up to play for Germany at youth level despite meeting with the former coach of the senior national team of Nigeria Gernot Rohr.
Last year Uche met with Rohr in Germany after a game for the youth team of the Bundesliga side and was expected to make the squad of the Nigerian team by the turn of the year, which is this year.
Rohr sees Uche as the missing pieces in the Super Eagles midfield due to his ability to create and also score goals with ten assists and seven goals for the U19 of Hoffenheim in the U-19 Bundesliga South/Southwest League.
However Rohr was sacked late last year and early this year Uche who had earlier refused to honour the chance to play for Germany accepted an invitation to play for Germany at U18 level and even played two games in March.
Explaining his representative told OwnGoalNigeria.com that since the initial contact with Rohr, there was no follow up even before the sacking of Rohr. His replacements Austine Eguavoen and Jose Peseiro respectively haven’t reached out yet.
” None reached out after the initial meeting with Rohr. Germany came calling and a decision has to be made which was play for Germany. If Nigeria ever needs him in the long run. We can have that discussion and a decision as well”, he concluded.
