Onazi terminates contract with Trabzonspor

Nigeria Super Eagles midfielder, Ogenyi Onazi has terminated his contract with his Turkish club, Trabzonspor with immediate effect.

In a conversation with Sports Daily, the reliable midfielder cited the inability of the club to meet up with its contractual obligations as reason for the termination. He indicated that the club was in the habit of owing salaries and at the moment owes him over 3 months salary.

You will recall that Trabzonspor had a remarkable season in the Turkish league, beating the club’s record and winning streaks and was at a point on the verge of making the Champions League. The club finished a respectable 6th in the Turkish Süper Lig.

Onazi is likely to get FIFA involved as he has given the club an ultimatum to pay up the outstanding salaries in the first week of July 2017 in order to avoid getting FIFA involved. It remains to be seen how this will be resolved.
