Rohr disclosed that the winger asked for permission to be left out of both games in a bid to concentrate on his club career.
“I spoke with him (Kalu) and he asked not to be selected,” Rohr told France Bleu Gironde
“He made a very good argument about wanting to concentrate on the club – he told me that the time had come for him to give his all, to fight to regain his place in the Girondin’s squad. I found his speech to be very positive.
“We have a lot of wingers in our squad, that is true. The competition is fierce, but I think what matters now is for him to have a starting place at Girondins. He has the means, but he has to be in top physical condition.”
