The Super Eagles, who are preparing for next month’s CHAN in Rwanda, have granted U23 stars Usman Mohammed and Bature Yaro a week’s break after their return from the U23 AFCON in Senegal.
“We have given Usman (Mohammed) and Bature Yaro one-week break after which they will rejoin us,” said Eagles assistant coach Salisu Yusuf, who is holding forte for ailing coach Sunday Oliseh.
League hotshot Gbolahan Salami and Warri Wolves defender Solomon Kwambe were also given compassionate leave by the team to account for their absence.
Yusuf further revealed they plan to have a look at a number of U23 players who were not called up for the training camp after what they showed at the U23 AFCON in Senegal.
“We saw some players in the U23s and we plan to call them after a meeting with the head coach,” he said.
