Troost-Ekong is arrogant ,disrespectful faces ban – NFF
National Daily gathered that the Super Eagles were involved in a bonus row with the Nigerian Federation during the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations and the Udinese defender was one of the chief protagonists as the players strongly pressed for their demands.
“A lot of the problems that we had with the players, during the AFCON 2019, were not helped by his behaviour,” the top NFF official said.
”He played a huge role in stirring up the players and upsetting the atmosphere in camp.
” Another top official added : ”He shows little respect to officials and exhibits no decorum at functions, where he is known to be contemptuous.
We are at the end of our rope and we may have to take drastic action against him”.
A member of the Super Eagles technical staff also corroborated this: “When Troost-Ekong came to the team, he was one of the best-behaved players in the team.
” Meanwhile, Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has leapt to the defence of one of his key players and stressed that Troost-Ekong has never given him any difficulties.
The German said to Obayiuwana in France : ”I have not had any complaints about Troost-Ekong, so I am surprised to hear them from you.
