Isaac Success expected to join Flying Eagles camp

13 May 2014, 17:05Israel Ojoko

Kaduna - Granada CF striker, Isaac Success is expected to fortify the Flying Eagles strike force when he joins up next week.

Team secretary Auwal Aliyu Ibrahim said a formal contact will again be made to Success’ Spanish La Liga club in this respect.

“Coach Manu has asked that Success join the rest of the squad in Kaduna as soon as he arrives Nigeria on holidays,” Aliyu Ibrahim said.

Granada did not respond to earlier contacts for the player to be released in time for the Flying Eagles African Youth Championship second round, first leg qualifier in Tanzania.

It is believed that this was because the big striker was very much part of their plans to beat relegation from La Liga.

He was an unused substitute for two of the club’s league games.

Granada are still in danger of relegation as they are just two points clear of the drop zone and they face second from bottom Real Valladolid away in a final game on Sunday.

A win for Valladolid could well see Granada sucked into the drop zone.

FC Porto forward Chidera Eze, who has recovered from a hamstring injury, as well as Bernard Bulbwa, Abubakar Lawal and Ifeanyi Nweke are the other players to join the 18-man squad from the first leg in Tanzania.

The return leg match is fixed for May 24 at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium in Kaduna.
