“This will depend on what the players are doing at their clubs.

“Some new players could come like fullback, we have somebody, but it’s too early to speak about that now.”

Rohr also stated that he was willing to give players from the domestic league more chances.

“I will watch tomorrow’s Super Cup (between Rangers and FC Ifeanyi Ubah) to see if I could see some players in the league,” he said.
