Sani Kaita still eyeing future return to Super Eagles

02 June 2015, 15:23

Lagos - Forgotten Nigeria midfielder Sani Kaita has sensationally made himself available again for a possible return to the Super Eagles.

The 29-year old, who recently signed for Nigeria Professional Football League side, Ifeanyi Ubah United, says he's always enjoyed playing for Nigeria and would love to play again, but with a proviso that he won't be ready for now.

"I will always be happy to play for Nigeria and I know it is a thing of pride to play for your country," he said.

"I just have to wait and see what happens (as per invitation) but I will always be happy to play for Nigeria.

"Whenever I'm called, I always give my best and I always put in my best efforts but the truth is I'm not thinking of that now.

"I'm not thinking of the national team now but maybe later," he said.

The former Flying Eagles midfielder was once a mainstay in the Super Eagles, but lost favour after his infamous red card against Greece at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, which meant with ten men, Nigeria lost their 1-0 lead to eventually lose 2-1 to the Greeks.

The former Kano Pillars man has been somewhat of a journey man, as he has played in Holland, France, Greece, Moldova and Russia.
