Marvin Ebuehi has said he is pleased that his son Tyronne Ebuehi has finally committed to Nigeria after what was described as the misunderstanding that trailed his first call-up by the country.
Marvin told thenff.com, “I must confess to you that I am glad that he has finally committed to Nigeria. I am very proud as a father. The first call-up, there was a misunderstanding and things went the way they did, unfortunately.
“I apologise for that misunderstanding. I have always said that he would have to play for Nigeria at senior level, because I am proud of my country.”
Ebuehi, who is an Amsterdam-based businessman was at the Super Eagles Crowne Plaza London Ealing Hotel on Saturday with Dutch wife, Toos to meet with Nigeria Football Federation officials.
“Tyronne has always been crazy about football from an early age. I put him in an academy at the age of six and I’m not surprised that he’s on the way to living his dream,” he explained.
Extrasportsnigeria.com understands Tyronne’s sister Tyvanne is a UK-based model and brother Trevin is a student in Holland.
“I am praying that Tyronne fulfils his ambition of playing for a big club in Europe, and also become an important player for the Super Eagles of Nigeria.”
