Nigeria international shot stopper Emmanuel Daniel is a free player, Owngoalnigeria.com can exclusively reveal after three days of investigations by our editorial team.
Following claims by Enugu Rangers that the 22 year old is still their player after his free transfer to Orlando Pirates of South Africa, our team discovered that there is no truth in their claims.
We gathered from sources at the office of the League Management Company (LMC), that Daniel signed a three year deal with Enugu Rangers when he joined them in 2013 from Shooting Stars of Ibadan.
His contract ended in December 2016. The old management of Enugu Rangers did their best but they failed to convince him to sign an extension to his deal, before they were sacked from office.
The claims by the new General Manager Christian Chukwu that the player is still contractually bonded to them is bewildering considering the fact that he was appointed in January.
Chukwu will have to provide evidence of the extension signed by Daniel to the LMC to prove his case, which we know he can’t provide as Daniel was already in South Africa when the former Super Eagles coach was announced as GM of the Nigeria League champions.
