Nigerian forward, Henry Onyekuru, is furious with Belgian club Anderlecht, after he was left out of Gernot Rohr’s preliminary 30-man World Cup squad announced on Monday.
According to Het Nieuwsblad, Onyekuru, who is on loan from Everton, was also very angry on Sunday evening when he was axed from Anderlecht’s provisional squad against Gent in the playoffs and told to sit in the stands.
The striker feels he missed the last opportunity to prove his fitness to Rohr and the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF), before they released the squad list.
This development could affect Onyekuru’s mind about extending his stay in Brussels, despite the club reaching an agreement with Everton over a fresh loan deal.
It is also understood that the player does not have a cordial relationship with Anderlecht manager, Hein Vanhaezebrouck, who has often criticized him for not playing to instructions.
Onyekuru has scored ten goals in 28 appearances across all competitions.
