Lagos - Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi has denied ever planning a trip to England to persuade Victor Anichebe to return to the Eagles fold while insisting the door to the national team is open to every player, KickOffNigeria.com reports.
The media had been awash with reports that Keshi would make a trip to London where he would meet with Anichebe and other players who have been notable absentees from the national team. But the Super Eagles coach denied the reports in a chat with SportingLife yesterday.
"I can't remember when I said that I would go and visit Victor Anichebe. I just can’t leave Nigeria and go to London just because I need to speak with Anichebe," Keshi said.
