Mba returns to Wolves

first_imgNigeria midfielder Sunday Mba has returned to Warri Wolves from Enugu Rangers in what is a remarkable turnaround.Mba chose to leave the Warri club for Enugu after a stellar performance at the Africa Cup of Nations where he scored the title-winning goal for the Super Eagles.His decision sparked a transfer tussle that required the intervention of the NFF, which handed both clubs an ultimatum to resolve the issue.That has not happened and the player has now chosen to return to Wolves“Yes, I am going back to Warri Wolves,” Mba told KickOffNigeria.com.He also tweeted from his handle @mba_sunday: “Thanks to all that has wish and pray for me .. The saga is over btw warri wolves and rangers can now play big time football #God @work” Amaju Pinnick, chairman of the Delta State Sports Commission, which oversees Wolves, told KickOffNigeria.com that the move was initiated by the player and his representatives.“I can tell you that it was the player himself that initiated his return to us and we are happy to have him back,” Pinnick said.“He has realised that as a national team player he needs to begin to play regular club football and that explains how he retraced his steps.”Pinnick declined to give further details, but said Rangers had not met the conditions for keeping the player.“At the initial stage, our release of Mba to Rangers was conditional and it was specifically for their continental assignments. “Even at that they have failed to meet the deadline we issued them for that arrangement to be formalised.”last_img read more
