Super Eagles Coach, Gernot Rohr has relinquished the role paraded in the team for a long time, the role of assistant captain that is beginning to cause a steer in camp.
Onazi would no more be regarded as Assitant Captain of the Super Eagles, ahead of the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
There have been reports that all is not well in the Super Eagles’ camp, ahead of the World Cup and it hasn’t gone down well with the technical team.
The national team manager, Gernot Rohr is not disposed to the appointment of a vice captain, saying the idea was counter productive to his plans ahead of the Mundial.
“Rohr has resolved to cancel the position of assistant captain in the Super Eagles as it is believed to be one of the issues militating against the team.
“Mikel remains is the captain and have been told to hand over the captain’s band to the most senior player on the pitch whenever he is being substituted.
“By this pronouncement, Onazi ceased to be Super Eagles’ vice captain from now on,” a source was quoted as saying.
