Everton Loanee Henry Very Disappointed With Anderlecht After World Cup Snub
Henry Onyekuru is very disappointed with Belgian club Anderlecht in the wake of his omission from Nigeria's preliminary 30-man World Cup roster announced on Monday, May 14.

According to Het Nieuwsblad, the Everton loanee was also very angry on Sunday evening when he was axed from Anderlecht's provisional squad against Gent in the playoffs and told to sit in the stands.

Onyekuru always claimed to be fit and missed the last opportunity to prove his fitness to Super Eagles manager Gernot Rohr and the Nigerian Federation before they released the squad list for the mundial.

Anderlecht and Everton have reached an agreement over the extension of the striker's loan deal but the player could put off extending his stay in Brussels now that the Pro League side frustrated his efforts to represent Nigeria at the World Cup.

In addition, the former Eupen star does not have a cordial relationship with Anderlecht manager Hein Vanhaezebrouck who has often criticized him for not playing to instructions.

He scored ten goals in 28 appearances across all competitions prior to his spell on the sidelines.
