The coach of the senior national team of Nigeria Jose Peseiro will hand a call up to Crystal Palace new signing Malcolm Ebiowei if he maintains his spot in the first team of the team.
Already head coach of Palace Patrick Viera has already said the talented 18 year old will not go on loan or drop to the U23 team insisting that he will be with the first team. A sign of how well he impressed him during their recent pre season tour.
Signed from Derby County on a free after the expiration of his deal, he trained with the Nigeria U17 team of 2019 but wasn’t included in the final list of players for the tournament.
His rise since then has been phenomenal as he went from failing trials at West Ham after he was released by Arsenal to joining Rangers, where he wasn’t offered an extension after a year. He was signed by cash strapped Derby County and there he seized the chance to make an impression and earned the move to Crystal Palace.
” We are aware of him right from U-17 when his uncle brought him to us. He is the nephew of Finidi George, who is the assistant to Jose Peseiro. So it’s a no brainer if he does well, he will be in the sqaud. A spot in the first team squad is fine for now”, a source close to Peseiro told OwnGoalNigeria.com..
