Enyimba have debunked reports that their captain, Mfon Udoh, has quit the club but claim he was suspended for misconduct and indiscipline.
Reports emerged on Friday morning that Udoh who is the all-time record goal scorer in the history of the Nigeria Professional Football League has severed ties with the People’s Elephant
But, the two-time African champions have moved to deny the claim and insist that the forward is still part of the team.
“Our attention has been drawn to news making the rounds that Mfon Udoh has quit our club,”reads a statement on Enyimba’s Twitter handle.
“There is no truth to this as the player was suspended last week for misconduct and indiscipline.
“He was suspended along with other players, but details were not released to the public.”
Enyimba will face Rwanda’s Rayon Sports in the CAF Confederation Cup quarter-final, first leg tie in Kigali on Sunday.
