Former Nigeria coach, Christian Chukwu, says it is about time some senior members of the Super Eagles team need to take a break.
His remarks came in the wake of Nigeria’s 0-1 loss in the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Guinea.
“I think players like Joseph Yobo, Taye Taiwo and Chidi Odiah should take a break.
“They don’t have to play all the matches during the Africa Nations Cup qualifiers. These guys need to rest because of their tight schedule at their respective clubs,” Chukwu said.
He expressed concern that the players are human beings who can get tired if over-worked.
In their absence, Chukwu said “the handlers should get the Nigeria Premier League players to fit in properly. That is the best way to build the team. Moreover, the NPL stars will play with more determination.”
The Eagles loaded with Europe based stars failed to fly against Guinea, on Sunday.
