Bordeaux Declare Kalu missing after failing to return on time from Super Eagles duty



French club Bordeaux has raised an alarm over the continued absence of forward Samuel Kalu who has failed to return from Super Eagles duty.

Kalu played two games for the Super Eagles in the last international break of the year and was instrumental in Nigeria’s 1-1 draw against South Africa on Saturday, November 17 which sealed their qualification to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

He also played some minutes in Nigeria’s goalless draw against Uganda on Tuesday.

After his international duties, however, the 21-year-old has failed to return to France to join up with his club.

According to Bordeaux, the forward failed to show up in training on Thursday, November 22.

“We have no news (on Kalu), he should have been there this (Thursday) morning. It’s a delayed return of to the team,” Bordeaux manager Eric Bedouet said.

Bordeaux are preparing to face Dijon in the Ligue 1 on Saturday, November 24 and Kalu could be benched for that clash or sent to the reserves as punishment.

Kalu joined Bordeaux this summer from Gent and has managed just one goal in 10 appearances so far this season.
