Super Eagles technical adviser, Gernot Rohr has visited Chelsea of England right-wing-back, Victor Moses and Wolverhampton Wanderers goalkeeper, Carl Onuoha Ikeme in the United Kingdom.
This much was disclosed by Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), which stated on its official website that Rohr was accompanied on the trip to England by the soccer governing body’s president, Melvin Amaju Pinnick.
The trip comes amidst speculation that the Franco-German tactician travelled to London to confirm the availability of Moses for Nigeria’s World Cup back-to-back qualifiers against Cameroon on August 31 and September 4th.
The former Crystal Palace and Wigan Athletic star, who has previously played on loan from Chelsea at Liverpool, West Ham United and Stoke City, was not part of the Eagles roster that lost 2-0 to South Africa last month, due to surgery on a toe injury.
However, Moses has since started undergoing full training and gym work with Chelsea’s first team, as he returned to drills with the club on Monday, July 10, with high expectations that he will be involved with the Eagles at the end of next month.
On the other hand, Ikeme is sure to miss Eagles’ action once again, as he was recently diagnosed with acute leukaemia, hence the visit by Rohr and Pinnick to offer their sympathies and that of the NFF.
