Agbim’s 2014 gets worse
The hapless Nigerian stopper has endured more heartache after being told he is surplus to requirements by his club side Enugu Rangers.
It has been a tough month for Chigozie Agbim. The CHAN skipper and Nigeria goalkeeper was widely criticised for his displays at the recent Championship of African Nations in South Africa. On several occasions, the keeper was deemed to be at fault for the goals conceded by the Super Eagles.
He was by-passed six times in eight games and rarely demonstrated an astute positioning sense nor an ability to organise his defence.
Stephen Keshi’s decision to stick with his under-performing stopper has been a source of controversy during and subsequent to the tournament.
It seems like Agbim’s 2014 has got a lot worse with the news that he has been released from his contract with Enugu Rangers, as reported by Goal.
The Enugu club’s media officer Foster Chime said, in reference to the keeper’s future, “Agbim is no longer our player. His contract has ended with us and we don’t want to renew it because the head coach has approved of only four goalkeepers for the league season and Agbim’s name is not included.”
Hopefully things can begin to get a little better for this unfortunate Super Eagle.
