Super Eagles and Enyimba forward Mfon Udoh has thrashed claims that he has joined a Belarusian club side.
The player who finished last season with an outstanding 23 goals tally to become the highest goalscorer in Nigeria professional football league history was said to have missed the Super six tournament because he travelled to Belarus to sign a deal with an undisclosed club.
Reports in several sections of the media claimed that the club does not know the whereabouts of the
player and quoted the manager of the People’s Elephant, Kadiri Ikhana as saying: “He (Udoh) has left for Belarus. He has joined a club in Belarus, he has gone.”
However, in an exclusive chat with SportingLife, Mfon revealed: “Ikhana is the technical adviser of the team and am a player of Enyimba.
“He is like a father to me. I told him something about a deal in Belarus but I didn’t tell him I’ve signed,” he explained.
The former Akwa United star, informed that he had planned to play in the Super Six tournament but fell ill and duly informed the club.
“After the Yemen friendly, I was looking forward to the Super Six but I suddenly broke down with sickness and disappointingly didn’t make it – I told the club and they were fully aware I wasn’t healthy enough to play.”
He also went on to reiterate his ambition to play abroad, he said: “I wish to play in a better league than the Nigerian league.”
Mfon scored his first International goal for Nigeria in last month’s 2-0 friendly win against Yemen.
