Mfon Udoh has reportedly announced his departure from Nigeria Professional Football League giants Enyimba FC after seeing off his contract with the club.
This comes after the forward was sent packing out of the club’s camp for disciplinary reasons by the Chairman Felix Anyansi-Agwu over the weekend.
The 26-year-old, who has been on the books of the club for five years, will consequently sit out of the People’s Elephants CAF Confederations Cup quarter-final clash with Rwanda’s Rayon Sports on Sunday.
“My contract with Enyimba ended when the league ended and Lobi Stars were announced as champions,” Udoh told SCORENigeria.
“I am a free player and already offers have started coming in.
“I now need to take a new challenge.”
“It has been an amazing five seasons with ‘The People’s Elephant’, there have been a lot of challenges, ups and downs.
“We give God the glory for carrying on.
“It was also a great honour to lead the team for a season.”
With Udoh claiming to have seen the expiration of his contract with the Aba-based side as the “league has ended”, all may not have been well with the forward’s relationship with the club’s hierarchy as he has chosen to call it quit in the middle of their ongoing CAF Confederations Cup campaign.
Udoh has had a glorious spell at Enyimba with his NPFL-record breaking 23 goals haul in 2014 – all-time record highest for goals scored in a single season – highlighting his exploits at the side.
