.But Not Registered For Club’s CAF Confederation Cup Games –
Home-based Super Eagles skipper, goalkeeper Chigozie Agbim is expected to return to his club, Warri Wolves after featuring at this year’s African Nations Championship, CHAN, where Nigeria claimed a bronze medal.
Eyeonthesports.com reports that Agbim, who was involved in a year-loan brouhaha between Warri Wolves and Rangers International of Enugu last season, hardly kept the required games for the Flying Antelopes, as he frequently shuttled between Enugu and the Eagles’ camp.
And, with the troubled and unrealistic loan deal finally terminated, Agbim, is due to assume his normal duties at Warri Wolves.
However, Agbim will have to wait for sometime to fight his way back into Warri Wolves’ number one position, as the club left him out of the second round, preliminary stage of 2014 CAF Confederation Cup, which holds late February.
Secretary of Warri Wolves, Lawrence Omorwho, who spoke to eyeonthesports.com on Wednesday, said; “Agbim is still with Warri Wolves, and should be back fully in the team as soon as he blends with his teammates.
“Agbim was not listed in the team registered for our CAF Confederation Cup for now, because he was away from our camp for a long time. But, he may return during the crucial stages of the continental championship”.
Omorwho’s revelations finally put to rest, insinuations in a section of the media, that Agbim was sacked by Rangers management.
Speaking on Agbim’s not too satisfactory performance at the 2014 CHAN, where he conceded some shocking goals, Omorwho said the club officials know what the goalkeeper can do.
“We saw what happened during the CHAN tournament in South Africa, but Agbim is a very good goalkeeper. We believe in his ability to deliver and our coaches will work on him. Nigerians will see a different Agbim soon”, the Warri Wolves scribe said.
Meanwhile, Warri Wolves, who got a bye in the first round fixtures of the continental championship beginning this weekend, would tackle the winners of two-legged matches 39 and 40 between US Douala (CMR) and Aslad de Moundou (CHA).
