Francis Uzoho depressed after being investigated in Cyprus
Super Eagles goalkeeper, Francis Uzoho is depressed after being investigated by officials in Cyprus, over a disputed health certificate.
Uzoho is bound to receive another obstacle in his efforts to get his career back on track, following a loan spell at Elche in Spain’s second division.
According to at Goal Cyprus, the Deportivo de La Coruña loanee visited the Police Station on Thursday evening as part of the investigation of the TAE regarding the procedure of issuing the 20-year-old’s health certificate.
Anorthosis say Uzoho is frightened and in a bad psychological condition and wants to leave Cyprus immediately despite receiving assurances from the club all was well.
Apollon complained that the Nigerian’s health card was not properly issued, leading to an official investigation by the Cypriot authorities, and they remain confident that they will win the case, with judgement expected on Monday.
The Federation has taken statements from those involved in the issuance of the disputed health certificate and Anorthosis have sought clarification whether Uzoho is eligible for tomorrow’s away game at Nea Salamis.
The Nigeria international was forced to cut short his loan spell with Elche last month after new signing édgar Badía was installed as first-choice goalkeeper.
