Ubong Friday, one of the longest-serving players of Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) side, Akwa United has revealed why he brought down the curtain on his contract with the Promise Keepers.
Friday made the revelation over a phone conversation on Total Naija Football, a one-hour Radio Nigeria Atlantic 104.5FM sports show focused on Nigeria football, shortly after putting pen to paper for the Armenian League football club, Lori F.C.
The 2017 Aiteo Cup Champions’ Vice Captain said his move to Europe was strictly on business grounds while hinting on the possibility of another mega move.
“I don’t wish to play much here. It’s a business. From here, I think I’ll look for a bigger club ahead of Lori FC but this is just a starting point for me over here.” He said.
The 21-year-old helped his former club win two Federation Cup titles and also represented Nigeria at the 2017 WAFU Cup of Nations in Ghana.
He will adorn the No. 20 jersey as Lori FC take on FC Artsakh at midday in a matchday 19 fixture of the Armenian top-tier league.
