Fenerbahce Coach Says He Doesn’t Need Rubin Kazan Bound Emenike


Coach of Fenerbahce Dick Advocaat says he has told Nigerian forward Emmanuel Emenike to look for another club, as there is no spot for him in his squad.


Emenike according to Turkish website Fanatik is close to agreeing a loan deal to Russian side Rubin Kazan, with an option of joining the team permanently in the summer after his loan deal.

Fenerbahce are demanding 5 million euros as his permanent transfer fee while the Russian side are pushing for a fee of 2.5 million euros. The disparity in their valuation of the star is the reason why the deal is yet to be agreed.

The Nigerian has not experienced the best of time with the Turkish side since joining them three seasons ago, with two separate loan spells in the UAE and England failing to provide the desired result needed to re-ignite his poor form.

He started this season as the top striker for Fenerbahce but suffered a terrible dip in form which made him lost his spot in the team, with Dutch coach Advocaat preferring Moussa Sow and Robin Van Persie ahead of the Nigerian.
