Footballer, Ogenyi Onazi Quits Turkish Club Trabzonspor
Nigeria international Ogenyi Onazi has ended his contract with Turkish topflight side Trabzonspor as a result of unpaid pays.
Onazi, 24, who quit Serie A outfit Lazio on similar ground last summer, dumped the Super Lig side after playing the final two months of last season without receiving a dime.
His agent and former Nigeria international Ayodele Stephen Makinwa says they have written to the Black Sea Storm with their decision.
“Now we are looking for a quick solution with regards his next destination,” Makinwa told BBC Sport.
“We have an agreement with the club which strictly states that the player has a right to terminate his contract if the club failed to pay him for two months or more.
“We’ve taken a decision based on the violation of this agreement as Onazi is being owed for more than the stipulated period.”
Trabzonspor, who signed the tough-tackling midfielder on a four-year-deal in August 2016, has so far refused to comment on the situation.
He joins Algeria’s Carl Medjani and Ghana’s Majeed Waris who recently quit the Turkish club on the back of disputes over unpaid wages.
Onazi recently captained the Super Eagles in their 2-0 home reverse to South Africa in the qualifier for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
