Moritz Jenz reveals why he ignored Nigeria

Sports Brief earlier reported that Celtic defender Moritz Jenz has explained why he opted to play for Germany, thereby ruling out the chance of featuring for the Super Eagles of Nigeria.

The 23-year-old is currently on loan at the Scottish club from French Ligue 1 side Lorient where two Nigerians, Terem Moffi and Innocent Bonke ply their trades.

He was born in Berlin to a Nigerian-born father and a German mother and is eligible to play for both the Super Eagles and Germany.
