Nigerian born Chelsea star, Noni Madueke is yet to choose between Nigeria and England national team.
When asked, the player’s father, Ifeanyi Madueke refused to make any categorical comment on the issue while on visit to Nigeria.
Recall that Madueke’s Father was in Uyo last weekend on the invitation of Superstars Academy president and NFF Youth Football Development Committee member, Victor Apugo on a scouting assignment.
He revealed his delight to be in the country and he praised the quality of talents he saw but insisted that talent must be marched with hard work and good character.
“I’m happy to be in the country. I’ve been impressed with the quality of facility they have here in Uyo and I’ve also seen some talented players, but they need to put in more hard work to achieve their dreams. I look forward to being here in November for the Superstars scouting tournament,” said Madueke.
He refused however to give anything away when questioned on the international future of his son and Chelsea forward Noni, insisting that he won’t make any comment on that for now.
The 21-year-old Noni was born in London and has represented the Three Lions of England at various youth levels.
Under the current FIFA rule, Madueke can switch international allegiance to Nigeria as he is only 21 and has not played for England at the senior level.
While thanking Madueke for honouring his invitation, Apugo urged him to use his influence and contacts to contribute to the discovery and development of talents from Nigeria.
