Fulham manager Scott Parker has revealed to the press why Super Eagles defender Ola Aina was excluded from the squad that tackled Arsenal in their premier league opener on Saturday.
Aina who recently sealed a loan move from Torino was omitted the matchday squad that 3-0 to Arsenal, at the Craven Cottage.
Parker explained after the game that, Aina and other new recruits are not the game as it came too soon for them.
“Today, this game’s come too early for those players; Alphonse [Areola], Lemina, the two boys [Kenny Tete & Ola Aina] we literally just signed. They probably fit into the same category as Mitro,” Parker told fulhamfc .com.
Aina and other new signings will be hoping to make their debut for the Cottagers in a cup game against Ipswich Town on Wednesday.
