The Nigeria Professional Football League NPFL, top scorer, Stephen Odey is set to return to the country on Saturday after his ambition to join Danish topflight side, FC Midtjylland was thwarted.
The player is currently at the center of the news on an alleged age falsification scandal. AOIFootball.com reports that Odey’s planned move to FC Midtjylland collapsed due to age falsification.
According to the newspaper, the age Odey presented in his passport was totally different from what was on his certificate. It said, “The Danish club have asked Odey to leave their Sports Complex immediately due to the development.”
The player is said to be on his way back to Nigeria from Denmark via KLM airline at about 10:05am. He will arrive Amsterdam precisely 11:15am while he departs Amsterdam through the same ‘KLM airline’ 13: 45 and lands in Muritala Mohammed international airport in Lagos, Nigeria 7.25 pm.
