I’m Still an Enyimba Player – Mfon Udoh (AUDIO)

Akwa United star forward Mfon Udoh says his heart is still with his former side Enyimba, declaring ‘I’m still an Enyimba player’ despite his controversial departure from the 7-time Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) champions before the end of last season.

The former Enyimba captain, who holds the record of the most goals (23) scored by a player in a single NPFL season, faced his former side on Tuesday in a friendly encounter, with his new club, Akwa United triumphing 2-0.

“Well, it is football, sometimes you play against your former team,” the Super Eagles striker said.

“It depends on the switch and the move.

“It is very, very unfortunate that I have to leave (Enyimba) the way I did, but it is football.

“I still love the People’s Elephant (Enyimba). I’m still an Enyimba player. Once an Enyimba player, is an Enyimba player. 

“I love my fans. I love everybody in Aba. Thank you, Aba! Thank you Enyimba fans! Thank you, everybody! I appreciate,” the 26-year old said, rather emotionally.
