There are indications that Kelechi Iheanacho may not represent the country at the Rio Olympics football event.
This is because the player may resume pre-season training with Manchester City. With the Olympics billed for August, chances are that the players will not be available for the country, if he resumes with City.
Iheanacho is in the country’s provisional list for the Games, but his participation is now in doubt, as he will return to England for City pre-season.
“We’re really not sure if he will go to the Olympic Games or not because he is scheduled to return to England for pre-season,” AfricanFootball.com has learnt.
“It will depend on the arrangement the NFF will have with Manchester City which I’m not sure of but I’m sure he will start the pre-season with City,” the source added.
Iheanacho had a breakout season at the Etihad last season, with former manager Manuel Pellegrini given him opportunities.
But with Pep Guardiola coming, he may need to prove himself and it remains unclear if he will be released for the Olympics.
But Allnigeriasoccer.com understands that FK Haugesund defender William Troost-Ekong, 22, has been permitted to represent Nigeria in Rio.
Initially, the Norwegian Tippeligaen club was reluctant to release their skipper, but after several discussions with the player, his management team and the club, an agreement has now been reached, and he will train with the squad in the United States before their departure to Brazil.
