Nigeria coach ponders Ranieri talks

Nigeria coach ponders Ranieri talks

Nigeria's coach has voiced concern over Ahmed Musa's lack of playing time at Leicester and may even seek talks with Claudio Ranieri.

Gernot Rohr, who took over as coach of the Super Eagles in August, will first speak to the players that he thinks are being affected by the competition for places at their Premier League clubs - which also include John Obi Mikel.

Musa has fallen out of favour at the King Power Stadium since the arrival of record signing Islam Slimani.

The Nigerian has missed out on selection in the Foxes' last two games, although he did keep his place in the Nigeria squad for their recent international against Zambia.

"It's not the best situation a manager will hope for two of his senior players," Rohr told Owngoalnigeria.com.

"But we understand that they play for teams that have high competition for places. We will however in the coming days have a chat with them on the way forward.

"If needs be, talks with their respective managers will also be a welcome idea. For now we will stay put and see if they get games before our next game."
