The top striker of Mountain of Fire and Miracle Ministries fc and the 2017 NPFL leading goal scorer is declared “missing”. The prolific striker who last featured for his team in the ongoing Lagos FA Cup game against Team 360 did not dress in their last two games against Anointed fc and Ikorodu United.
It was initially rumoured that the player sustained an injury in his last FA cup game and he’s been rested to play in the finals of the competition.
It was however surprising to read a tweet from the official twitter handle of fc Copenhagen that Odey is currently undergoing a trial with them.
Meanwhile, the coach of MFM fc, Fidelis Ilechukwu aka ” The Working One” has denied giving Odey permission to travel to Denmark or anywhere for trial, according to the coach “I don’t know the whereabouts of Stephen Odey”
“He (Stephen Odey) didn’t tell me anything, nobody told me anything.” the coach concluded.
Surprisingly, the agent to Stephen Odey has threatened to drag Danish side FC Copenhagen to FIFA over his client Stephen Odey who has started trials with the Danish side.
Odey was told he will only do a medical, but upon arrival played a trail game for the team yesterday, and will play another later today before the club make up their mind on his potential signing.
The situation has frustrated his agent, who turned down the chance for the forward who has 14 goals in the Nigeria League to move to Russian side Kuban Krasnodar.
One could just hope that this will not lead to Stephen oblivion as he’s about getting a call up to the National team camp against South Africa.
His club MFM are also angry with the forward who travelled out of the country without the knowledge of the team, who are currently battling for a top three finish in the Nigeria Premier League.
