MANCHESTER City manager, Roberto Mancini says he will allow Nigeria's Lars Lagerback to have a chat with his defender, Nedum Onuoha on April 14 when the Super Eagles' Technical Adviser visits The Eastland.
Onuoha, a former England's U-21 captain, wants to switch allegiance to Nigera in order to gain a World Cup experience at South Africa 2010 and Mancini states that the player is free to make a choice though he believes Onuoha should not dump England having served as a youth captain.
''The decision is for Nedum,'' Mancini told the club's website.
'I feel he should wait for his senior chance for England but the thought of going to the World Cup with Nigeria is also great," said the former Italian international.
