Vitoria Setubal of Portugal midfielder, Miekl Ndubuisi Agu has accused FC Porto coach, Sergio Conceicao of deceiving him into a false sense of belief that he would get a place in the top club’s main team this season.
Agu, who footballlive.ng recalls had a sterling time on loan at Bursaspor of Turkey last season, says he missed a huge summer transfer due to Conceicao’s promise.
Incidentally, Agu is back on loan at Setubal, where he was sent by Porto three years ago, but the underachieving schemer, who almost made it with the Super Eagles to the World Cup in Russia, says he could have sealed a bigger deal instead.
Agu insists Conceicao gave him an impression that Porto would not loan him out again, as the lad would be an integral part of their plans for the new season.
However, few days into pre-season training, Agu recounted how shocked he was to learn that he was on his way out for another loan spell.
That was how the 27-year-old player made a return to Setubal, where he spent the 2016/12017 season on loan, but Agu believes he would have got a better deal elsewhere had Conceicao not given him a promise of finally getting a lift into Port’s first team.
Agu said: “As long as Sergio is coach of Porto, I will not return. He asked me to come back.
“I went back for pre season and in the middle of it, he told me that I am not in his plans.
“It wasted my time and denied me the opportunity to make a good transfer at the right time.”
