Bordeaux coach Eric Bedouet reveals that Samuel Kalu had spent nights not sleeping with the phone after the kidnap of his mother on February 27.
The winger’s mom, Juliet Kalu, was released by her abductors earlier this week.
Bedouet informed today the Nigeria national-teamer will return to the squad for the trip to Monaco on Saturday, having been left out of the team that faced Montpellier because he wasn’t in the right frame of mind.
”Samuel Kalu is coming back, he is happy, but watch out, he spent nights not sleeping, with the phone next to him all night, it’s complicated,” said Bedouet.
But he comes back to the group and we are happy that the outcome is favourable.
These are incredible things, we really had everything this season, I do not know if we can have anything else.”
This season, Kalu has featured in 29 matches for Bordeaux in all competitions, scoring 4 goals.
