Super Eagles defender, Efe Ambrose sends message to Kelechi Iheanacho

Super Eagles defender, Efe Ambrose, has advised Leicester City striker, Kelechi Iheanacho, to continue to work hard and remain focus on his career.The Derby County star also said that Leicester City coach, Brendan Rodgers, can develop Iheanacho into one of the best strikers in the world.The 30-year-old stated this while reacting to the decision of manager, Gernot Rohr, to drop Iheanacho from Super Eagles’ 23-man final Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, squad.DAILY POST had reported some days ago that Iheanacho and Semi Ajayi were the two players that have been dropped.“I know Brendan Rodgers very well and he is a manager that can develop Iheanacho into one of the best strikers in the world,” Ambrose told Goal.“However, the most important thing is for him to keep working hard. Once he can show Rodgers commitment, zeal, determination and passion to excel, he will not be looked down upon at Leicester City.“I have worked under Rodgers and he is such a manager who understands football so well. So I will advise him to stay at Leicester because over there, he has a man who can develop him into a fearless striker he used to be.”Ambrose added, “Not making the team to Egypt is not the end of the world, he is still a young lad and still has a lot of years ahead of him.“I know how disappointed he would feel but the most important thing is how he manages himself and bounce back to reckoning.“He should shake the pains off and cheer the Super Eagles to victory in Egypt because he is still part of the team, only that the coach has picked who are good enough to win the Africa Cup of Nations.“With hard work and focus he will be back in the team again because I believe he has a big potential. So rather than moan over his Nations Cup miss, this is the time to show the national team coaches on what he can do.”

PACK YOUR BAGS!! Unai Emery Advised To Sell 3 Arsenal Players In The Transfer...

Former Arsenal star, Charlie Nicholas, has urged Unai Emery to sell three players, before bolstering his defensive options this summer.The Gunners suffered a dismal run of form towards the end of the 2018/2019 campaign, to fall out of the top-four in the Premier League.Having also lost to London rivals Chelsea in the Europa League final, Arsenal will again be absent from the Champions League next season.Nicholas has identified Mesut Ozil, Lucas Torreira and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, as players who should be sold if the right offer is on the table.“We’re being slow again in the market. The manager has identified plenty of options. Defensively is the key area. “I just hope we don’t delay these deals. Arsenal need to get into the market. We can’t afford someone like Aaron Wan-Bissaka but we need a whole new defence really. “We need three defenders to come in which will cost £60-£70m. “Who can they get out of the door? If you can get the right offer for Mesut Ozil you’d sell. Mkhitaryan can go and you want to keep Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette. “Torreira seems to be interested in going back to Italy. If you can get the right money: take it,” he told Sky Sports.Unai Emery See more posts about ArsenalShare this post with your Friends on
