One Cap Super Eagles Midfielder Paul Onobi Joins Saudi Arabia Side Al-Nojoom FC


Fomer Lobi Stars, Warri Wolves and Sunshine Stars of Akure midfielder Paul Onobi has joined Saudi Arabia top division side Al -Nojoom FC, understands.


Onobi represented Abia Warriors and Lobi Stars in the Nigeria Professional Football League after his one season stint with ‎Finnish side KuPS where he played 22 games with just one assist to his name.

The 25 year old also had a short stint in Oman with Al Nasr with injury cutting short his stay at the club. His move to Al Nojoom FC is believed to be a contract for just a season although it has an extension clause if he performs as expected.

A start for the senior national team of Nigeria against Swaziland in a World Cup 2018 Qualifiers in 2016 caused uproar as then Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh preferred him to John Obi Mikel.

Onobi subsequently represented the B team of the Nigerian team at the African Nations Championship in Rwanda but failed to impress as Nigeria crashed out of the group stage of the tournament.
