Former Golden Eaglets starlet and key member of the U-17 side that won the FIFA U-17 World Cup in 2007, Kabiru Akinsola, says he is currently facing an uncertain future after refusing to extend his contract at Spanish Segunda B2 club, L’ Hospitalet.
The Catalonia based club failed to gain promotion last season, losing out to Llaganes in the final play-off round and Akinsola has remained clubless since failing to remain with the club.
The 23-year old Granada of Spain striker, says he’s fed up with life in the lower division and wants a crack at a top flight club.
“I’m fed up with lower division clubs, that’s why I didn’t extend my contract with L’ Hospitalet,” Akinsola told SL10.
Akinsola is presently in Nigeria on holidays, but admitted that he’s not sure of where he’ll be playing next season.
“To be honest, I don’t know where I will be playing next season, as my agent is yet to give me anything concrete. I’ve spoken to him a couple of times but nothing has come of it,” he said.
It will be recalled that Akinsola had earlier told SL10 of offers from some European clubs, and maintains there are offers on the table, but nothing yet to hold on to.
“The offers from Romania and Ukraine are still there, but nothing solid yet. My agent tells me he’s still discussing with them, so I’m waiting. But for now I really don’t know anything about where I’ll be playing next,” Akinsola said.
