AFCON 2023: Fulham manager saddened by loss of Bassey from Super Eagles duties


Fulham manager Marco Silva is disappointed that in-form defender Calvin Bassey will not be selected for an extended period of time.

Bassey has been in great form for Los Blancos in recent games.

The 24-year-old produced a strong performance in Fulham's 2-1 win over Arsenal last Sunday.

The centre-back was the rock at the heart of Fulham's defence, limiting the Gunners' attackers to just three shots on target in the game.

The center back also boasted a season-high passing accuracy of 95.2 percent.

Bassey and compatriot Alex Iwobi will join Nigeria's camp ahead of the 2023 African Cup of Nations on Tuesday.

Silva expressed disappointment that the former Rangers player will not be able to play for the club in the next few games.

“He is strong, fast, has quality on the ball and always has the right mindset to learn, listen and improve every day. I’m really happy for him. , we will be missing him for a long time,'' he said on the club's official website.
