Emenike Considers Making A Return To Turkey


Former Super Eagles striker, Emmanuel Emenike is considering making a return to Turkey, in order to put his career back on track.


Footballlive.ng reports that the former Delta Force, Black Aces, Cape Town FC, Karabükspor, Fenerbahce, Spartak Moscow, Al-Ain, West Ham United, Olympiacos and Las Palmas star is worried with the decline that has faced his career in recent years.


In order to put things right, Emenike is now seriously thinking fo returning to the country where he popped into limelight, first with Karabükspor and then Fenerbahce, who stood by him when he faced a match-fixing case in the country.

Ferne actually laoned Emenike to Spartak Moscow to avoid demeaning pressure that could distract him, then took him back when the case was eventually thrown out.

After Emenike’s exit, Fernebahce signed former Eagles’ captain, Joseph Yobo, and currently have retired Nigerian international winger, Victor Moses on their cards.

However, Emenike is not thinking of returning to the Istanbul-based side, which is currently struggling for form, but says he would like to line out with any other club in the Turkish Super Lig.

The 31-year-old all-action attacker, who last featured for Olympiacos of Greece, was loaned to Las Palmas of Spain in the January 2018 transfer window, but did not get to play a single game due to injury.

During his time out, Las Palmas were relegated from La Liga and, instead of accepting him back, Olympiakos terminated his contract in July.

After recently coming through successful surgery, Emenike admitted he is missing the round leather game and believes he can rediscover his old form back in Turkey, but admits there is little time left in his career.

Emenike stated: “Turkey and miss football so much. I’m going to be more powerful back. Little time left. Yours truly.”
