Agency reports reaching us have it that the duo of Kenneth Omeruo and Wilfred Ndidi will not be selected in the Super Eagles squad for the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

 

Goal.com reports that  following club disagreements, John Obi Mikel and Daniel Akpeyi have been picked as Nigeria’s two overage players for the quadrennial Games starting on August 4.

 

“Omeruo wanted to play but he has not sorted his contract issue with Chelsea who has a new coach in Antonio Conte,” a team official told Goal.com

 

“Wilfred (Ndidi) issue is because his club coach wants Samson Siasia to make the player a starter in the U-23 team. Siasia believed this was a mere excuse by the club in order not to release the defender for the Games.”

 

On claims that Coach Siasia has selected his squad for the games, the official noted that this was false.

 

“Coach Samson Siasia is yet to release his final 18-man squad for the Olympics.

 

“In fact he was sad to read the report on the online media. He has pleaded that sports reporters should wait for the Nigeria Football Federation to release the final Olympics squad,” he added.
