Mba aims to return after 2 years out

Nigeria’s 2013 African Cup of Nation hero ,Sunday Mba is determined to return to active football after staying two years without a club.

‪Mba,who was instrumental to late Stephen Keshi winning the AFCON in South Africa and scored the Super Eagles’ winning goal, was released by Turkish club Yeni Malatyaspor in September 2017.

‪Mba has not played competitively since his last appearance against Sivasspor in May 2017, but believes he still has plenty to offer.

‪”My desire is to get back into club football and I am working hard to start playing again.‪”As a free agent things are not really that easy, but you can only be hopeful,” he told BBC Sport.

‪”Football is everything I have and I cannot just give up. I believe there’s something out there for me.”

‪Mba played for both Enugu Rangers and Warri Wolves in the Nigerian top flight before switching to French club CA Bastia in January.

‪He left for Turkish side Yeni Malatyaspor in July 2015- where he netted eight goals in 55 appearances.

‪Out of the spotlight and keen on a return to competitive action, Mba understands the challenge that lies ahead.

‪”First you’d need the luck to find someone that believes in you and ready to give you a chance,” he said.

‪”I’ve continued to stay in shape, train daily and be physically ready for any opportunity.

‪”I still have something to give and will continue to stay mentally and physically ready.”

‪Despite playing all three matches at the 2013 Fifa Confederations Cup in Brazil, his international career stalled and he missed out on the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

‪Mba scored twice to help his country’s B side to success at the regional West African Football Union (Wafu) Cup title in 2010.

‪He has scored three goals in 16 appearances for the three time African champions.
