Former Super Eagles midfielder, Eddie Ogenyi Onazi has confirmed he will no longer continue to be on the books of Danish club SønderjyskE after both parties decided to part ways this January, AOIFootball.com can report.
The former Lazio of Italy midfielder who was only limited to just 3 appearances after joining the club as a free agent in October, told AOIFootball.com exclusively that there was a clause in the contract which gave him the chance to leave before the end of the season.
“I have terminated my contract with SønderjyskE, there was an agreement that in January I can take the option to leave and I feel the time is right to do so,” Onazi stated.
The player’s confirmation was further backed by the statement released by the club thanking the 2013 AFCON winner for his dedication whilst with them.
“There is not a finger to put on Onazi’s efforts in SønderjyskE. He has been a professional to the tips of his toes and he has fitted in well with the group with his dedication and he has also scooped out his experience to the young players on the team.
“He came with a backlog from an injury, but he has been in almost all training sessions with us, and it also became a starting place in the Sydbank Cup and a few innings in the 3F Super League.
“However, it did not turn out quite as he and we had hoped, and he himself has expressed that he might fit better into another league than the 3F Superliga, and he now has the opportunity to try it out.
“We thank him for his efforts in the light blue jersey and wish him all the best for the future,” the club posted.
