Rohr Clears The Air On Super Eagles Captain For Libya Clash

Published on: 11 October 2018

The issue of who will wear the captain armband when Nigeria take on Libya on Saturday in the AFCON 2019 Qualifiers has been laid to rest by coach of the team Gernot Rohr

Ahmed Musa who captained the Nigerian team against Seychelles was reported by Owngoalnigeria.com as the one to wear the armband against Libya and not Ogenyi Onazi.

Onazi was appointed vice-captain last year after Musa dropped the armband due to pressing family issues which eventually led to the Al-Nasr forward divorcing his first wife.

Rohr confirmed in an interview after the training session of the team ‎that Musa will continue as captain of the team against Libya in the absence of main captain John Obi Mikel.

” Musa will captain the team against Libya. He was captain against Seychelles and in the absence of our captain, he will captain on Saturday. Getting a win is our main priority against Libya “, the coach told Owngoalnigeria.com in a chat.
