Taiwo not bothered by Eagles defence

Super Eagles and AC Milan full back, Taiye Taiwo (In Pic)says he will not join Nigerians who say they are not comfortable with the national team defence.

Ever since Samson Siasia took over as coach of the national team, fans of the team have been impressed with the high scoring form the Eagles have shown but say the defence has been cause for concern.

However, Taiwo told naijafootball247.com that there is really nothing to be bothered about.

“I believe we are okay. I can’t pick the team but the coach and he will always pick the best players for every game,” Taiwo said.

“We have players like myself, Dele (Adeleye), Elderson, Yusuf Ayila who can also play in center back and we have lots of options.

“I’m not calling these names because they are my friends but just to let you know there are options apart from the regular Yobo, Shittu and the rest.”

Taiwo added that the problem is that there are always changes in the team that has affected the chemistry and wishes things will be done differently this time.

“Let us allow the coach to work on a set of players and make changes as he deems fit. We always change our team and that is our problem and it is important we continue with a winning team and only make changes in case of injuries or suspensions.

“It is our job to defend and I believe we are doing it well so yes, I believe the Eagles defence is not a problem,” Taiwo enthused.
