Kano Pillars striker, Junior Lokosa is back in Nigeria empty handed from his trip to Bulgaria, as a top club in the Eastern European nation, PFC Ludogorets Razgrad opted not to sign him in a summer transfer swoop.
Rather than accept terms for the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) top scorer, Ludogorets’ coach, Dimitar Dimitrov reckoned the striker is not good enough for the Bulgarian champions.
This came after Dimitrov insisted on watching Lokosa during a training session or two-sided game because there was a controversial information about him.
All this is despite a boast by Lokosa’s agent that the youngster would directly sign a contract with Ludogorets, without undergoing any form of trials with the team.
In contrast, the club say the former First Bank FC of Lagos star does not have the necessary level to play for the team and it will be easier for the players in the academy to break into the first team than the Nigerian.
Nonetheless, the 24-year-old is expected to begin training with the Super Eagles at their get-together in Uyo next week.
Lokosa earned a spot on Nigeria’s 30-man provisional World Cup roster after scoring 18 goals for Kano Pillars in the Nigerian Professional Football League.
