Trabzonspor of Turkey midfielder, Ogenyi Eddy Onazi has thrown a dig at Super Eagles manager, Gernot Rohr.
Onazi said he will show his talent to those who didn’t give him the chance to play at the World Cup.
Onazi, who was kept on the bench by Rohr during the World Cup, played on another level in his team’s 1-1 draw against Antalyaspor in the Turkish Super Lig on Saturday.
The Nigeria international touched the ball the most, 111 times in total, placing first ahead of Argentinian teammate, José Sosa who had 100 touches.
Out of the 92 passes Onazi attempted, he completed 72 and ended the game with a passing accuracy of 82.6 per cent.
He was also the joint top dribbler, along with Antalyaspor’s Dogukan Sinik with four take-ons.
In an obvious dig at Gernot Rohr, Onazi criticized the German for not handing him playing time at this summer’s World Cup.
The former Lazio midfielder has also been omitted from the latest Nigeria list announced on Monday for no good reason.
”I’ll show my quality and talents to those who didn’t give me the chance to play in the World Cup,” Onazi told the Turkish press.
