Former Super Eagles captain and Arsenal legend, Kanu Nwankwo, has advised  the to the Nigeria Football Federation to make the welfare of Alex Iwobi and Man City starlet, Kelechi Iheanacho a priority.

He said that because he sees the duo as the new pillars of football in the Super Eagles and they will make the country proud.

He noted that the Nigerian football will return to its former glory because Nigeria has young players that are playing well in their various clubs.

“Nigeria football is coming back to the glorious days that we used to know. We have young players that are playing well in their clubs. Alex Iwobi is a player I have watched and I see him as someone that is cool headed and he listens to whatever you tell him to do and takes it on board. He works hard too. He’s got the talent and he can do it’ Kanu said to Sporting life.

“My advice to him is not to be carried away by his current form and the accolades that has been following his impressive performances week in week out in the English Premiership. He is just starting. If he can keep it up and also double up his efforts he is going to reach where we want him to reach and he is going to be a good product for the country. 

He said that the success of these players will depend on how Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) package them
