Nigeria vs Serbia: Manchester United block Tosin Kehinde from training with Super Eagles


Manchester United teenage prospect, Tosin Kehinde, who is seeking to dump England for Nigeria, will not honour coach Gernot Rohr’s invitation to train with the Super Eagles.

Rohr’s squad is currently in London, preparing for Tuesday’s international friendly against Serbia.

Kehinde was invited to train with the team after a meeting yesterday with the first vice president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Shehu Dikko, alongside his parents.

However, United has kicked against the idea and the midfielder who plays for their Premier League 2 side, has been ordered back to Manchester.

The English Club pulled him out of training with the Super Eagles, as they need him to resume training today ahead of preparations for their Premier League 2 game on Tuesday.

Kehinde would have been allowed to stay with the Nigerian team if he was formally invited.
