Chan Eagles and former MFM midfielder Ifeanyi Ifeanyi has finally open up on why he terminated his contract with Algerian side ES Setif despite signing a 3-year contract with the North African side.

The former Flying Eagles midfielder revealed that financial issues and lack of regular game time forced him out of the Algerian side.

Speaking with Boluwaji Ogunmola on BCOS Television, the experienced midfielder said he had to terminate his contract with the club because they were passing through financial challenges and could not pay his wages following the imprisonment of the Club's President.

" What actually happened is that the Club President signed me, whereas the Coach didn’t want me, maybe he doesn’t like a black player. And then the Club President who signed me was arrested and jailed. And then the coach wasn’t playing me", Ifeanyi explained.

" Everyone has traveled home, including staff and players,’ We are only three players here and we train together every day depending on how we feel and I’ve been able to maintain my weight because of the training routine,’

The Super Eagles player is, however, optimistic that normalcy will soon return globally and the virus outbreak will be contained.
