But we have contacted the Russian FA and they are the ones keeping us waiting from playing the player since he has been cleared in Nigeria.
“But we have also decided to include him in our list for the CAF Confederation Cup for next year because we are confident that we will secure the clearance certificate before next year when the CAF Confederation Cup will begin,” Ebikagboro told
Eromoigbe joined the Russian outfit on February 26, 2008 for a fee of around €1.5 million and was released on September 15 this year.
