Dudu Omagbemi denies reports he quit East Bengal over Pay dispute

20 June 2015, 21:14

Abuja - Dudu Omagbemi has denied reports which claimed that he refused to extend his contract with East Bengal because they failed to meet his financial demands.

The 29 year old is up there with the likes of Ranti Martins and Odafe Okolie as the top Africans to grace the I - League.

''Before the season ended, the story was out and I went to confront them and they said it's not true,'' says Dudu Omagbemi to news24.com.

''East Bengal never spoke to me on a new contract. They just said they didn't want me for next season and I haven't sat down and spoken with them for money issue.''

More than half of Omagbemi's professional career has been spent with Indian clubs and the striker has dropped a hint that he will look for pastures new ahead of next season.

''I don't know yet my next destination. I don't have any option yet, everything is in God's hands.

''I have done my best there in India last season just that they don’t appreciate it and I will never blame them for that,'' Dudu Omagbemi added.

Before the free agent returned to India in 2014, Omagbemi turned out for teams in Finland, Poland and Hungary.
