After departing the Super Eagles training, Umar Sadiq will play for Real Sociedad.


January 17, 2024

Real Sociedad have named Umar Sadiq in their game day squad days after he left the Nigerian camp ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Cote d’Ivoire.

Sadiq was among Nigeria’s 25-man team for the competition but left owing to a knee injury he got in a pre-tournament match against Guinea.

However, Nigerian fans were shocked when the Spanish club listed the forward in their team for Wednesday’s La Liga tie with Osasuna.

Nigeria’s next game in the 2023 AFCON is against hosts Cote d’Ivoire. The Super Eagles drew their first match with Equatorial Guinea and need a win to boost their chances of making the next stage of the competition.
