The Super Eagles gaffer informed he has been in touch with the former Inter Milan man who said he was only managing the situation, and nothing more
Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr reveals that Joel Obi's absence from action over the weekend was only a 'precaution' and nothing serious.

The midfielder was notably left out of Torino's squad to face AS Roma on Friday evening - a match his side lost 3-0 with second-half goals from Kostas Manolas, Daniele De Rossi and Lorenzo Pellegrini doing the damage - which raised eyebrows as regards the fitness of the injury-ravaged player.

However, the Super Eagles gaffer says the midfielder told him he was only managing the situation as there was no major injury concern."Yes, I called him when I saw that. I called him [on Saturday] night to find out why he did not play," Rohr told Goal.
"He told me that it is precaution because he had some injury problems and but we will keep in touch with Torino’s medical team because in the past he had big number of injuries."
The coach, hoping for Obi to attain full fitness ahead of pre-World Cup friendlies against Poland and Serbia later this month, believes the 26-year-old would give him more option in midfield, with players in that department enduring contrasting fate in their various clubs.

"We have some interesting players, we see all the time [Wilfried] Ndidi does very well for Leicester City, we see some problems for [Ogenyi] Onazi, who is not playing all the time in Turkey, the same for Mikel Agu - who's not in my list this time, but we have John Ogu who is doing very well," he continued.

"We have now Joel Obi; I hope he'd be fit, we have our captain John Obi Mikel who played the whole game [for Tianjin Teda on Saturday].

"All we have to do now is have a very good scouting. To monitor them. Which is why the scouting team around me, each Sunday night we make a meeting via phone to see how they are doing."

Obi has had a decent run this season, having already featured in 18 Serie A games - two short of last term's 20 and nine off his record league appearance [27 at Inter Milan in the 2011/12 campaign].

he didnt make an error. he spelled it right. We dont use the word "gaffer." The English do. The same way the Spanish call their coaches "Mister." We need to stop copying the English on every single thing. Its embarrassing.

With Onazi not seeing much time I think Ogu is almost a shoe in to start if he keeps playing well. We’ve no direct replacement for Onazi unless Ndidi plays the DM role and we look for another CM.

Obi and Etebo are not ball winners

If Onazi is fit he will be starting, he played yesterday for his team Trabzonspor.

Cmon You people should quit this fear mongering. We have had "fit" players get injured at tournaments before (Iroha, Mobi, Amokachi, Onazi, Baba Messi etc). If he is healthy by May 13, 2018 and has satisfied all other requirements for selection, he has to go. You cant take some lesser player at his expense because you are scared of a possible injury.

Those guys except Onazi r not injury prone like Obi? Mobi got injured ke? When? Onazi is injury prone, his backup to some extent is Obi, that can get injured even in training. It’s not about fear, just analyzing facts. Amo still played 3.5 matches before getting injured.

But you still cannot compromise on quality just because there's a higher risk of injury in a player that is fit at the time of the commencement of a tournament.
