Obuh is not carried away by the victory as he expected more from the Super Eagles, especially against a team ranked 188 in the world.

Injuries and new entrants should never alter Nigeria’s ‘coordination’ against a lowly-placed side like Seychelles, says John Obuh, after the Super Eagles ran out 3-0 victors in Saturday’s African Cup of Nations qualifying match in Vitoria.

The Nigeria set-up was depleted after injuries to some key players including captain John Obi Mikel, and, thus, Rohr made four changes to the team that started against Argentina in their final World Cup group game in June.

The German tactician restored Ogenyi Onazi, Chidozie Awaziem and Odion Ighalo to the lineup, with Samuel Kalu handed his debut. He also opted to set his side up in 4-3-3, as opposed to the 3-5-2 majorly deployed at the big summer in Russia.

However, despite getting their Afcon qualifying campaign back on track with the win at Stade Linite, the former Nigeria U20 coach insists that the team did not do enough against the tiny East African nation, as such games are used to ‘improve’ a team.

“Thank God for the victory anyway, but I think we still have to work very hard most especially anytime we are meeting a team of that level,” Obuh told Goal.

“I expect we should use that situation to make sure that we keep the coordination of the ball very well, the position of the ball very well and pass the ball very well.

“When we’re attacking we know we’re attacking, we’re defending we know we are defending. We had a lot of situation for counter-attack which we didn’t use well.

“I think the most important thing anyway is we’ve won the game but then we must try to make sure that when we are playing that kind of level we should use it to improve on our team.”

Also, Obuh suggests that there should be a laid down template which would ease the team, and its invitees.

“I wouldn’t want to say that [injury-enforced changes altered coordination of the game]. I just want to think that we are still in the process of testing,” he continued.

“There were some people who came into the team for the first time either because of the injuries or whatever but what I’m trying to say is let’s have a sort of game plan; what we are looking for each time we are playing.

“After the victory, we should able to tell what we are going to play so we’d be able to understand how we are playing and how we are going about it, irrespective of the changes, after all, we still have a couple of players who are stable in the team,” he concluded.

Nigeria play Liberia in a friendly encounter in Monrovia on Tuesday, and four Nigeria Professional Football League players [Mfon Udoh, Ebube Duru, Sunday Adetunji and Olamilekan Adeleye] have been called up.

The Frenchman has been out of work since leaving Real Madrid, but he is being mooted as a replacement for Jose Mourinho and plans to be back “soon”
Zinedine Zidane has fuelled speculation that he could be being lined up to replace Jose Mourinho at Manchester United by revealing that he plans to return to management “soon”.

The Frenchman has been out of work since leaving Real Madrid at the end of the 2017-18 campaign.

He walked away from that post on the back of an historic third successive Champions League triumph, with La Liga title glory also savoured at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Zidane left Madrid claiming that the Blancos needed “something different” to keep them competitive at the highest level.

He has enjoyed a break from the stresses of coaching, but the 46-year-old is now eager to get back into the dugout.

Zidane told TVE: “Certainly I’ll be coaching again soon because it’s what I like doing and what I’ve done all my life.”

It has been suggested that the former France international’s next job could be in England.

He is being heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford amid Manchester United’s early struggles in 2018-19.

Jose Mourinho has claimed that it will cost the Red Devils too much to sack him, with the Portuguese having committed to a new contract in January.

He is, however, under pressure to deliver results after overseeing an inconsistent start to the new season.

If he is unable to turn the tide, then United will be left with little choice but to make a change.

Zidane would likely be among those taken into consideration if he remains without a job.

A spell with Real is the only top-level experience taken in by the World Cup winner, but he proved himself capable at the Santiago Bernabeu and is well respected throughout the game.

Agbonlahor open to Celtic move

Former Aston Villa and England striker Gabby Agbonlahor says he would be open to signing for Celtic.

The 31-year-old was released from Villa while Celtic lost star striker Moussa Dembele to Lyon at the end of the transfer window.

And after featuring in a charity match at Celtic Park, Agbonlahor said he would be happy to wear the hoops full time.

“I think every player if they had the chance to play for Celtic would take it,” he told The Herald. “Can you imagine playing in front of 60,000 people inside this place.

“You can never rule anything out – can you? I will try and speak to Brendan Rodgers and we will see what happens!”

Man Utd to swap Pogba for Dybala

Red Devils & Juve stars to trade places

Having identified Juventus forward Paulo Dybala as a top target, Calciomercato claims that Manchester United are prepared to swap Paul Pogba for the Argentine forward.

Barcelona have been leading the hunt for the Red Devils’ World Cup-winning midfielder, but he would be open to returning to Turin for a second spell.

Dortmund will demand £68m for Weigl
Manchester City ​will have to pay Borussia Dortmund £68 million (€76m/$88m) to sign midfielder Julian Weigl, according to the Daily Star.

Pep Guardiola is looking for cover for 33-year-old Fernandinho in defensive midfield, and sees the 23-year-old as the ideal candidate.

City could launch a bid for Weigl in the January transfer window.

Varane sees door opened for Man Utd Move

Real Madrid are prepared to part with Raphael Varane in the summer of 2019, with Diario Gol claiming that the Frenchman is destined to head for Manchester United.

Jose Mourinho has made no secret of his admiration for the World Cup winner and is prepared to pay whatever it takes to get a deal done.

Pavard offered to Barcelona

Benjamin Pavard’s agent has contacted Barcelona over a possible deal for the France international but will have to pay around €35 million (£31m/$40m) to sign him, Mundo Deportivo reports.

The Stuttgart star has attracted interest from Bayern Munich following his impressive performances at the World Cup and is expected to move on next summer.

However, Barca do not have any space on the right side and are unlikely to make a move for the 22-year-old.
