Sunday Mba, the Nigerian player who scored the winning goal that helped Nigeria clinch the cup at the African Cup of Nations this year has left the training camp for the African Nations Championship (CHAN) to conclude a deal with French side CA Bastia.
He left after seeking permission from the Super Eagles Head Coach, Stephen Keshi.
This adds to the number of Nigerian players leaving the CHAN team for clubs abroad. Kelechi Iheanacho had left for a deal with Manchester City. But the deal fell through.
However, Keshi seems unperturbed about absence of some key players.
About the Mba leaving the team, he said, “The CHAN team will have to move on”.
He also added, “We would have loved to have him with us but we can only wish him well and hope this will enable him to stay in great shape. When he told us he was leaving, all we did was wish him well and grant him permission to leave camp”.
