Nwabili Good For Taiwo’s Role In Eagles —Emordi



Enyimba head coach, Okey Emordi, believes that new Super Eagles’ left-back, Valentine  Nwabili, has the capabilities to become a key figure in the number 3 shirt of  the  national team.


In an interview with SuperSport.com, the former African Coach of the Year award winner in  2004, points out the qualities of Nwabili. He believes that he will battle for the  left-back position with established players like Taye Taiwo and Elderson Echiejile.

“He is a very good player. I have been at Enyimba for  a season and I know what Valentine  is capable of doing.  I believe that he will give the national team coaches more options  in the left-back position of that team. Also, the foreign-based players in that position  will have a real hard time battling for the shirt with him because he has good work rate.

“Another thing that could work in his favour while in the national team is that he has a  very good left foot that can hit the ball at a dangerous speed. So, I am sure that in a  matter of time he will start scoring goals and may be, he could be heading abroad like  most players that have played in the local league and national team,” said the former  Enugu Rangers’ gaffer.

“But as Enyimba coach, it is always good to have such players, who bring that kind of  quality to one’s  team,  though in his absence, we have another capable replacement in  Kenneth Anyanwu, who has almost similar style of play like Valentine,” Emordi said.
