Cape Town City FC of South Africa chairman, John Cumitis has thrown more light on the unceremonious exit former Super Eagles attacker, Victor Obinna Nsofor has been forced to make from the club, as the boss says it was mostly due to off-field issues.
Though Nsofor had a poor run of goals and appearances during his short spell with the Premier Soccer League (PSL) outfit, Cumitis said the biggest issue was that the player could not settle to life off the pitch, because he failed to get entry visas to South Africa for his wife and child.
Consequently, Nsofor was released from his contract at Cape Town City after just five months in the Absa Premiership, after he was lured to the club by their coach, Benni McCarthy, who was his teammate during their days together at West Ham United of England.
Within that time, ‘For Real’ failed to impress in his time with the team, making nine starts and four substitute appearances, but scoring just a single goal in the derby against Ajax Cape Town.
The former Inter Milan, Chievo Verona and Regina of Italy attacker said he was hoping his time in South Africa could lead the way back for him into the Super Eagles, ahead of the World Cup in Russia.
Nsofor played as a substitute for City in their final appearance against SuperSport United in Durban, but Comitis felt his contribution had not been significant enough and a termination of contract was agreed.
