Olympiacos Enquire About Enyimba Star Iwuala

Greek giants Olympiakos made enquiries about Super Eagles and Enyimba midfield star Anayo Iwuala.

This was revealed by former Nigeria international Ifeanyi Udeze on Brila FM’s Breakfast Show on Friday.

Iwuala has been one of the revelations of the Nigeria Professional Football League this season.

His impressive displays for the Aba Elephants led to him being invited to the Eagles for their double-header 2021 AFCON qualifiers against Benin Republic and Lesotho which he featured in.

Udeze who played in the Greek top-flight with PAOK Thessaloniki, disclosed that he was contacted by Olympiacos who wanted to enquire about the quality of Iwuala and if he will be a good addition to their team.

Udeze said he told them Iwuala will be an asset to their team if they go ahead and sign him.

However, he said Olympiacos stated that the one million euros price tag placed on Iwuala by Enyimba is too much.

        They don’t respect Nigeria because we don’t respect ourselves, look at the standard of our leagues and the poor administration that is why they price our players like mangoes.

    If it’s a South American player they’ll not argue about this price for a player who recently got national call up and featured twice. Common!

    @Ifeanyi Udeze
    Breeze don blow, we don see fowl yansh. It’s obviously becoming crystal clear why most of the ex-internationals will not let Rorh be because he isn’t bringing their players into the SE for them to get enquiries by the supposed european clubs (Udeze just confirmed that already).

    God bless Nigeria and any one who loves Nigeria genuinely.
    I come in peace

  • This one million euros price tag….. A player is only worth what the buyer will play. No player has been sold for one million from Nigeria to anywhere in the past 10 years. Nigerian league players are usually priced at between 350k to 500k.

    Considering the African market, a Congolese, Senegalese, Ivorian or Ghanaian player is priced around the same. If you want to purchase something, the seller says one million and you know you can get it cheaper down the road, would you buy the one million or the 350k?

    Now, there have been murmurings that clubs in Azerbaijan or Belarus might pay one million. The down side of going for that is that no player has been called to the Super Eagles from Azerbaijan or Belarus. Never in the history of the Super eagles and it will be a death knell to the players career.

    The flip side, what do other countries do that Nigeria tends not to? sell on clause. negotiate a price which is realistic in the market and add an “added value” clause that means 25-30% of any future sales. That would mean you sell for the “normal market value” of 350 to 500k and continue to get a cut every time the player is sold.

    If his career follows the trajectory of say Chidera Ejuke, Moses Simon, Samuel Kalu, not even that of Victor Osimhen, Wilfred Ndidi who have hit the very top, medium growth, the club will make more money than the one million hit.

    This is where choice of clubs is important. I would suggest a good club from a top 10 league such as Udinese, Galatasaray, Charleroi, Genk, Kortjkrik, Brugge, Heerenveen, Heracles, Olympiakos, Boavista, Santa Clara is a real good deal at 350k to 500k with a 30% clause considering that all of the above clubs have helped developed the careers of Super Eagles players in the last few years. That is a much better option than one million in some godforsaken league in football’s backwater

    They don’t want to pay anything meaningful for the Home based players. These clubs thinks they can get one cheap player for a-penny-in-a-dollar bargain in African zone. The player must bear patience and continue to work hard and playing for the National team. It is hard life in Nigerian environments l know. Players are not paid as when required for their services.

    Udeze with his Brilla Fm job can play the role of an agent.. Added blessing working for low wages with a radio station.
    Enyimba shouldnt stand in Iwuala ways, they should add a sell on clause,to recoup more than the 1m euros they want in future.. Lets say sell for 500k euros with a 20% profit sell on clause.

    It’s better he up his game at Eyimba as well as the Super Eagles. That way , a good European club would definitely need his services. Yaya Toure’s brother was bought from Asec Mimosas to Arsenal and in that season he won the premiership with an unbeaten run, fa cups and other trophy . .Iwuala should use the opportunity of being called into the national team to an opportunity to attract a top European club for his services. That way , his values for the club will be appreciated.
