Stoke City assistant manager, Paul Hart, has disclosed that he would love to have Super Eagles top midfielder, Oghenekaro Peter Etebo, back at the club’s pre-season training camp ahead of next season.
Hart also said that the club is proud of Etebo for what he has achieved with the Super Eagles of Nigeria so far at the ongoing 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON.
Etebo is currently on international duty with Super Eagles at the 2019 AFCON in Egypt.
The 23-year-old is expected to start Nigeria’s semi-final clash against Algeria on Sunday.
“It’s a double-edged sword really, because we are incredibly proud of him (Etebo) and what he is achieving, but it would be great to have him back,” Hart told Stoke City’s official website ahead of Nigeria’s AFCON semi-final clash against Algeria.
“These are some of the challenges that you have in football though – you just have to deal with it, which is what we will do.
“We are so pleased for Peter though, he is a great lad and he will be back as soon as he possibly can.”
He added: “We will most definitely be looking after him and managing him correctly when he does come back.”
