Administrative problem reason Kingsley Ehizibue is not playing for Nigeria - Gernot Rohr reveals

Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr revealed that Kingsley Ehizibue has an administrative problem. According to Rohr, that is why he stopped inviting him to the Super Eagles camp.

The versatile defender received the invitation to play for the Super Eagles in March 2020, but the outbreak of coronavirus stopped him from playing for Nigeria.

Speaking to Elegbete TV, Rohr stated that Kingsley has a Dutch passport and cannot play for Nigeria because – it means that he will lose his Dutch passport.

The German tactician revealed that Kingsley has agreed to play for Nigeria, but the passport issue is blocking his chances of playing for Nigeria.

“Kingsley has administrative problems. Kingsley was born in Germany – he was a refugee – and had to go to the Netherlands to get a Dutch passport.

“Now, if he takes another passport, for example, a Nigerian passport, he must leave the Dutch passport. He cannot have double passports – this is the only problem.

“I met him in Cologne. I saw him with his agent, and the boy wants to play with us – but if he is playing with us with the Nigerian passport – he will lose the Schengen passport. He cannot lose it because – in his team, he cannot play without the Schengen passport, so this is only an administrative problem.

The 25-year-old made nineteen appearances in the Bundesliga and created an assist. While he made thirty-one appearances, scored a goal, and assisted one last season.
