The Nigeria Professional Football League ( NPFL) hotshot and Sunshine Stars’ top scorer for the 2016/17 and 2017/18 season Sikiru Adewale Alimi has waved goodbye to the Akure based outfit.
The former Warri Wolves and First Bank striker who joined Sunshine Stars in the 2016/17 season has seen out his two years contract and is available for negotiations in search of greener pastures.
Speaking to allnigeriasoccer.com, Alimi Sikiru’s intermediary Endurance Iseri Ogbemudia said Alimi was so passionate wearing the colours of the Akure gunners, but the Nigeria Professional Football League side did not value their assets, adding that it would have been easy to extend Alimi’s contract with Sunshine Stars but due to personal reasons, the lad has to move.
He said Sunshine still owe Alimi Sikiru five months salaries for June, July, August, September and October 2018 and match bonuses.
“It was a tough battle, I secured his clearance from the club, despite the frustration the player experienced in hands of those who are supposed to safeguard his budding career, I must commend some members of the Football Intermediaries Association of Nigeria (FIAN) who intervened in some ways during the process of securing the clearance,” Ogbemudia said.
