Highly rated Nigeria U-20 defender Lukman Zakari won’t be joining Tunisian side Club Africain after his career adviser pull the plug on the move, and ordered the 18 year old back to Nigeria.
Zakari arrived Tunisia two weeks ago to team up with Sfaxien but the move was called off due to a transfer ban on the team by FIFA. Club Africain reportedly seized the opportunity to snap him up.
However talks which were progressing nicely were put to a halt by Mohammed Mowiz Suleiman, who advises the U-17 World Cup winner on his career.
” Zakari won’t be joining Club Africain due to issues I will discuss in few days time but for now the move is off. I called it off due to reasons, which are very much what he needs right now”, Mowiz told Owngoalnigeria.com.
” Before the end of the transfer window, we will hopefully reply one of the numerous teams who have been on his trail. I don’t know where and when he will leave, but Zakari will make a move that will benefit his career in the long run”.
