Gernot Rohr has gone tough as he declares that he will no longer call up players he describes as “vacation players” because they have failed to fight for first-team places after two invitations. “Some players have been invited for two matches but have yet to push for a place in the first team and now we wish to invite fresh players to do what they could not do,” “The time is gone when a player comes for two matches, collects bonuses, allowances and ticket refund and does not measure up. “What we need now are players who can fight for first-team shirts and so make the team more competitive.” The likes of Israel-based midfielder Nosa Igiebor, Kingsley Madu from ZulteWaregem of Belgium, Rangers goalkeeper Emmanuel Daniel and Jamiu Alimi from Kano Pillars could fall into this bracket of “vacation players”.
