Benfica new signing Tyronne Ebuehi has stated that Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has the final say on whether or not he makes the team’s final World Cup squad.
The 22-year-old insists he is not of the ‘status’ of players sure of a berth in the 23-man roster for the Mundial.
Confronted with a big competition Shehu Abdullahi and Ola Aina for the right-back role, Ebuehi has made five appearances and been on bench another five times since he joined the team in March 2017.
“I have been with the Nigerian team a few times and Gernot Rohr acknowledged that I’m a good player,” Ebuehi told Goal.
“But I don’t have the status within the team to be certain of a place in the team. It depends on the coach.”
The Dutch-born defender started Monday’s international friendly against the Democratic Republic of Congo.
