Super Eagles’ striker Brown Ideye is an unhappy man following the relegation of his loan club, Malaga FC to the second tier of Spanish football, AOIFootball.com reports.
Ideye was brought into the team in the winter transfer market to salvage the team from going down but his efforts were not good enough.
The player told AOIFootball.com exclusively from his base in Spain that he appreciates the manager and fans of the team for their support all through his stay.
“It’s unfortunate the situation we found ourselves in. Malaga is a very good team but most of the damage was already done before now. But I am confident they can bounce back and return to the LaLiga at the first time of asking,” Ideye said.
When quizzed about his next career journey, the 29-year-old attacker, who has played in no fewer than 8 countries across the globe, said he enjoyed his time in Spain and would be open to another opportunity there.
“I’m grateful to God that my footballing career has been really good, having played in most of the big leagues in the world. I want to keep playing in the big leagues to help develop me further as a player.
“I like the LaLiga and I will sure consider playing in another team here. I’m in a good team and I’m thankful for that, but this year was just very bad year for Malaga FC and I pray they come back up next year,” Ideye concluded.
The AFCON 2013 winning striker still has a contract with China’s Tianjin Teda till the summer of 2019 but feelers from the player’s camp indicate he could be on the look for another loan deal.
