Exclusive - Agent: Nosa Is Doing All He Can To Return To Spain

Exclusive - Agent: Nosa Is Doing All He Can To Return To SpainReal Betis gaffer Pepe Mel will not count on the services of Nigeria international Nosa Igiebor for the away match against Espanyol on Sunday.

Yesterday, Nosa departed Nigeria to join his Betis teammates in Barcelona ahead of the clash with Espanyol.

But due to a bureaucratic problem, the German authorities did not allow him go down from his plane in Frankfurt on Saturday morning.

Norwegian - Nigerian agent Atta Aneke has provided an update on his client, who is on his way back to Nigeria to sort out the problem associated with his international passport.

''The truth is that on Saturday morning Nosa was stopped in transit in Frankfurt, Germany.

''Apparently, he needs some documents from the Spanish Embassy in Nigeria - a stay permit,'' Aneke told allnigeriasoccer.com in a telephone conversation.

This is not the first time Nosa has traveled out of Spain since his switch from Hapoel Tel Aviv last summer.

Recall that the midfielder was part of the Super Eagles squad which beat Venezuela in an exhibition match only last November. But he did not encounter the same problem after the game in the United States.

''Not sure why this is a special case. Might be within a time frame he had to have processed the papers, or just met an immigration officer that was strict.

''Nosa is doing all he can to talk to the Spanish embassy for them to process the papers quickly so he can return to his team,'' said Aneke.

Real Betis have lost patience with Nosa Igiebor. Ghana international Wakaso Mubarak who represented his country at the African Cup of Nations returned to Spain on Thursday.
