Ebuehi Snr ‘Proud’ Son Has Committed To Nigeria



Marvin Ebuehi has spoken to of his joy that first son Tyronne Ebuehi has finally committed to Nigeria after the misunderstanding that trailed his first call-up by fatherland.

“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 apologize 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,” said the Edo State –born father of three.

Ebuehi, an Amsterdam –based businessman was at the Super Eagles’ Crowne Plaza London Ealing hotel on Saturday with Dutch wife, Toos and a couple of in-laws.

“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.”


Tyronne’s sister Tyvanne is a UK –based model and brother Trevin is a student in Holland.

“I am praying that Tyronne fulfills his ambition of playing for a big club in Europe, and also become an important player for the Super Eagles of Nigeria.”
