Former Super Eagles midfielder Sani Kaita Explains Why He Walked Out On FC Ifeanyi Ubah



Former Super Eagles midfielder, Sani Kaita has spoken of his case with Nigeria Professional Football League side, FC Ifeanyi Ubah.

The midfielder was declared missing by his club but he has come out to claim that he abandoned the team after they failed to meet with the agreements in is contract.

The former Sparta Rotterdam midfielder  in an interview with African Football, claims that had an agreement with the club management on some payments, but they failed to go by this and that all efforts by him to make them to respect his contract failed, prompting him to walk away.

I had an agreement with the team. I agreed terms with the club chairman, he promised I will get what we agreed in two days,” he said.

I played four matches for the team, but they failed to fulfill their own part of the agreement.

I made several efforts to make them respect the contract, but the chairman never responded. I have all the conversations I had with him.

I gave them a time frame to do what they needed to do, but they failed, so I was left with no choice than to leave the team.”

Sani Kaita further revealed that he has formally lodged a complained to the League Management Company (LMC), Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) and FC IfeanyiUbah.

I won’t go back to the club, I already sent letters to the LMC, NFF and the club, stating what actually happened,” he said.

I won’t blame John Obuh for saying I am nowhere to be found because he does not know what happened as he wasn’t there when I joined the team and no one will tell him what happened.

I thank the club owner, Ifeanyi Ubah, for the chance given me to play for his club. He has good plans and vision for the team. If many other wealthy Nigerians could do same for Nigerian football, it will be better for our country.”
