Uchechi rues absence of key players


Sheffield Wednesday striker, Daniel Uchechi says he is not happy that key players of Nigeria’s U23 team failed to make it to the Olympic Games qualifiers in morocco.

Uchechi who is with the team says it is very difficult for European clubs to release players at this time.

“It’s quite a difficult task getting clubs to release players regardless of whether we are playing or not because they see it that they pay our wages.

“Even when you are a fringe player they still may not grant your release just in case someone gets injured. If it was a FIFA window it may have been different because no one is actually playing games at that time,” Uchechi said.

He added that a good relationship with the managers and the national team boss could however make things a bit easier.

“It takes understanding from managers to ensure compromise or else it will be really very difficult.”
