Belgian Club Offload Eagles 2014 W/Cup Star

Belgian Club Offload Eagles 2014 W/Cup Star

Super Eagles star, Reuben Gabriel has been offloaded by his Belgium club, Wassland Beveren after the club felt uncomfortable with the Nigerian’s form.

Gabriel’s unstable career took another turn for the worst as the AFCON 2013 winner is presently clubless after Waasland Beveren opted against prolonging his stay.

Prior to the World Cup, in January 2014, he was reported to have signed an 18-month deal with the Belgian outfit after terminating his contract with Scottish side Kilmanorck.

However, according to reports gathered by SL10, Reuben Gabriel signed an initial six months deal with Wassland Beveren with an option of a further 12 months if he impresses.

At Waasland Beveren just as it was at Kilmanorck, where he made two appearances in six months, he made just five appearances for the team and picked up one red card amassing just 179 minutes.

A poor World Cup showing, where he appeared just once for Nigeria in the second round loss to France further convinced Waasland Beveren to release the midfielder.

Waasland have already played five games this season and are presently on a poor run of form placed 16th after five games.

Gabriel’s number 20 jersey has been given to young belgian Niels De Pauw, while the midfielder was spotted by SL10 in Kaduna State Nigeria training in the southern suburb of the State.

The Ex-Kaduna United, Enyimba and Kano Pillars star used to be the first name on the Super Eagles line up in the early days of Stephen Keshi’s reign as Super Eagles coach.

Keshi’s trust in the player saw him make the Nigeria World Cup team, despite playing only 275 minutes of club football in a whole calendar year prior to the World Cup.

    Keshi will recall him soon immediately he drop some cash in keshi’s account

  • Junk player brought in to Super Eagles by a junk coach.

    Enlisting Gabriel Reuben for the world cup in Brazil is one of the many failings of Keshi and further confirms that he does not deserve a second chance with the Nigerian national team
