NEWLY appointed  Technical Adviser, Lars Lagerbäck has disclosed that Super Eagles captain Nwankwo Kanu is experienced but too old.

He revealed his intention to grant Kanu audience before making a decision on whether the Portsmouth star will fit into his programme.

The former Sweden national team coach, stated that he would give every other player a chance to impress him but warned, Kanu is already on the wrong side of football.

“I know about Kanu and I know he is a good player. He is experienced, but getting old. That is true, but I can’t rule him out and assume he is too old to play.

“I plan to meet him and discuss with him and we will see where we go. I plan to meet many of the other players, because I know Nigeria has many good ones.

“The players are very good and this makes the team strong. We plan to get together and see what can be done with the team. I know Nigeria can do well with the quality (of players) we have,” he enthused.

Lagerback was appointed by Nigeria last Friday and is saddled with the responsibility of leading the Super Eagles to the World Cup slated for South Africa in June.
