Bryan Idowu was snubbed by Eagles Head Coach Gernot Rohr for the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt, but at club level the defender doesn’t look like he’s faring any better.
Four games into the new Russia Premier League season and Idowu is yet to get minutes for Lokomotiv Moscow.
In the latest league game, played on Saturday, the 27 year-old sat out the entire 90 minutes as an unused substitute.
Playing away from home, Loko defeated Krylya Sovetov 2-1, for their second win of the season – they’ve also recorded a draw and a loss.
For the Nigerian and his teammates they started their campaign for the new season on a high with a 3-2 win in the Super Cup against Zenit St.Petersburg.
Idowu played 6 minutes of regulation time at the VTB Arena in the win.
The next game for Lokomotiv Moscow comes up on home turf at the RZD Arena, where they’ll host Ural.
