Mohammed Gambo was rumoured to have signed for a Tunisian club.
Kano Pillars striker and Super Eagles hitman, Mohammed Gambo, on Wednesday debunked reports that he has been signed by a Tunisian club hence will be unavailable for the Super Eagles return leg in Abidjan against the Elephants of Cote d’Ivoire.
Speculations were rife at the weekend that Gambo had been hooked by Tunisian side, Club Africaine, causing the Eagles’ coach, Stephen Keshi, to make frantic enquiries about the situation before making his list for the Ivorian leg public.
However, Eagles scribe, Dayo Enebi Achor, quotes Keshi as saying Gambo has denied any deal with the Tunisian side.
“I have just spoken to Gambo and he has said he has not penned any deal with a Tunisian club or any club outside the country for that matter and that is why he will still be eligible for the return leg against Cote D’ Ivoire”, Keshi said. Gambo scored the first goal in the Eagles 4-1 annihilation of the Elephants at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium in Kaduna last Saturday.
The gangling Kano Pillars strikers has been a major part of Keshi’s home based squad and was part of the team that went to the recent Confederation Cup in Brazil, where Nigeria was rated fifth by FIFA out of the eight teams that took part in the championship won by host Brazil.
