Super Eagles Manager Gernot Rohr beleives latest invitee Ovie Ejaria will be a perfect fit when he finally gets to don the green and white.
The Southwark born forward was recently granted approval by world football governing body, FIFA to represent his country of Origin after starring for England at youth levels and the Franco- german tactician who watched the former Rangers midfielder while on a tour of England was left in awe with the ease with which he dribbled past opposing defences in the English Championship.
After watching the 22-year-old in action, Rohr insists that the Liverpool youngster is distinct from other creative players in the eagles at the moment and hence the need to bring him in.
“Ejaria won Rohr over with his dribbling abilities in tight spaces. When Rohr watched him he was convinced he has found a different kind of midfielder than the ones in the team at the moment,” a backroom staff of the team disclosed.
“He’s someone who can unlock tight defences with his dribbling skills. It’s important to have a player like that and we have Ejaria now. It’s really going to be interesting when international football returns”, a source close to the gaffer said.
