Anderlecht Pass Up Opportunity To Sign Nigeria U17 Free-kick Expert Ubani & Why Manu Is WorriedPublished: October 10, 2019
Allnigeriasoccer.com has been told that Belgian First Division A side R.S.C. Anderlecht have passed up the opportunity to sign Nigeria U17s free-kick expert Wisdom Ubani when he attains the age of majority.
Ubani underwent trials at Anderlecht but failed to impress their youth team coaching staff.
The Giant Brillars F.C, Enugu striker received a pre-contract offer from an unnamed Scandinavian team prior to his trip to Belgium but rejected their advances.
At the 2019 U17 Africa Cup of Nations, Ubani was the Golden Eaglets standout player, ending the competition with three goals but has recently suffered a dip in form.
Golden Eaglets coach Manu Garba is worried about the player's consistency and had considered axing him from the 25-player traveling squad to Sao Paulo.
Ubani was a shadow of himself in last month's UEFA ASSIST Invitational Tournament in Turkey, failing to score in any of the three matches played by the Golden Eaglets.
Manu opted to include the 2003-born player on the roster only because he helped the team qualify for the World Cup in Brazil.
