Ebuehi gets Rohr’s advice after Benfica deal

Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has advised Tyronne Ebuehi to work hard and keep a regular shirt at his new club, Benfica.

Rohr, who congratulated the defender on his move to the Portuguese champions said a regular shirt at Benfica would help him to make Nigeria’s World Cup cut.

Reports in Portugal suggest Ebuehi has agreed to join Benfica, but he will remain on loan at Dutch Club ADO Den Haag till the summer.

Rohr insisted the players for the Super Eagles final World Cup squad must be playing regularly for their various clubs.

“Benfica are a good club, but Ebuehi must play regularly for his club to be at the World Cup,” demanded the Franco-German coach.

“That’s the same with all the other players.”

It was gathered that Ebuehi has insisted on regular game time at his next club as his contract with ADO Den Haag runs out in the summer, according to SCORENigeria report.

Ebuehi, 22, has interested several top European clubs including Anderlecht and has impressed in a handful of Eagles friendlies.
