Anders Kevin Hit Out At Gernot Rohr For Calling Up Dennis Ahead Of David Okereke

Belgium journalist Anders Kevin has hit out at Gernot Rohr over his decision to hand a first-time call up to Club Brugge forward Dennis Bonaventure ahead of David Okereke, who he insisted would have been a better option.

Surprised to the news of the call-up, Kevin said Okereke looks more like the player every manager would love to have in his team considering how well he has adapted to life in Belgium since his move to Club Brugge from second division Italian side Spezia on a five-year deal.

The 22-year old Lagos born forward has registered four goals in five games for the Blauw-Zwart with one assist to his name unlike his compatriot Bonaventure who has only managed to score one goal this season so far.

Beyond their goal stats, Kevin said Okereke has shown more consistency than Dennis who drifts in and out of games and at a time was even dropped for Okereke to play from his favourite position on the left.

Speaking to Owngoalnigeria: It’s strange that the better player didn’t get a call-up.

They are both good but Okereke is slightly better. Many will say he plays mostly as a striker but he has played on the left this season and overall did well. It’s very funny that the Nigerian coach called the one who is less consistent. It’s a joke here in Belgium right now

True to the words of Kevin, last season while at Spezia Okereke operated from the left and scored ten goals with twelve assists to his name, a form which earned him the move to Club Brugge before the start of the season in Belgium.
