I’ve been eyeing Ejuke – Tunde Adelakun.


Tunde Adelakun, Genort Rohr’s right hand man, announced that he’s been keen on Chidera Ejuke.

Ejuke, 22, is a Nigerian-born midfielder and forward.  He currently weighs 72kg and he’s 1.73metres tall. Ejuke moved to Heereven FC (Netherlands) for 2million Euros last year.

Many a fan of the Super Eagles are longing to see the dexterious Ejuke feature in a match for the senior team.

In the same stance, the demanding population has a clear understanding that the Super Eagles coach,  Genort Rohr, have not for once put a call through to Chidera Ejuke.

The NFF have aired their interest to breed players of the NPFL to make up the Nigeria Super Eagles team.

The English-based talent spotter revealed that Nigeria Professional Football League players will be considered for invitation to the national team, adding that there is quality in the league. 

Inspite of this, Tunde Adelakun told Channels Television in a discussion that he’s been taking a bird’s eye view at the youngstar.

“Most of the players who are playing in Europe today came out of the Nigerian Professional Football League. Not long ago, before this COVID-19 broke thing broke, we looked at a player, Ejuke,” Adelakun said to Channels Television.


Adelakun also added in his witsome utterances that he’s proud of Ejuke whose fountain could be traced to the NPFL.

“Just like Ejuke, there are many other great players in the NPFL and we’re not tired of producing better soccer players”, Tunde Adelakun said stupefyingly in his closing remark.

So far this season, Ejuke had scored10 goals in 29 games while producing six assists.
