Ex Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) star, Paul Onobi has been signed on a free transfer by Abia Warriors in what can be described as a transfer coup.
Onobi who became a free agent following his time at Finland with KuPs, was signed in a very discreet deal as his availability wasn’t known to other teams, especially teams playing on the continent.
Speaking about his exit from KuPs, Onobi said “I was not sacked by KuPs, I ran out of contract with the club after I only signed a year’s contract and after the end of the season the two parties parted ways.
“It was a big experience for me to play in Europe and above all a fantastic season in Finland.”
Onobi also shed light on his transfer to Monaco that didn’t materialize. “My deal with Monaco broke down after my agent and the club did not agree on terms.
“So, I had to come back home to play football pending when my agent gets me a suitable club in Europe. I can’t stay in Europe I need to play football because I love my job, I hate to be idle.”
