Super Eagles’ winger, Samuel Kalu has described reports of a rift between him and his French club Bordeaux as false and baseless after the forward came on in their goalless draw away at Dijon on Saturday, can authoritatively confirm.
Reports in the Nigerian media stated that the forward could be fined for returning to training late but the former Gent forward told exclusively that the reports where lies as nothing of such ever happened.
“It’s all a lie. Forget the Nigeria news because they had no idea of the situation. The issue was that I did not initially know we will play on Saturday, I was thinking we will play on Sunday.
“I arrived Bordeaux 10:30 and our training already started at 10:00 and nobody from the club was at the airport to pick me, So they called me later and I explained to them,” Kalu revealed.
His appearance against Dijon on Saturday night further showed the club had the player’s backing with Kalu replacing François Kamano after 75 minutes with Bordeaux holding on for a valuable away point.
The young star has started 8 games since his move from Belgium, scoring once in the league and creating one assist.
