Chikatara off to Wydad in July

11 March 2016, 11:02

Lagos - Abia Warriors striker Chisom Chikatara says he has completed a move to Moroccan club Wydad Casablanca but will continue playing for the Nigerian side until July.

Chikatara will be in action for Abia Warriors when they play Enugu Rangers in an Oriental derby on Sunday in MatchDay six fixture of the Nigeria Premier League.

“Of course, I will be heading home to Umuahia right from the Super Eagles camp to play in the oriental derby against Enugu Rangers on Sunday.

“Yes, I have completed my move to the Moroccan side, Wydad Casablanca but will wait to July to commence league action with the North African side.

“Part of the contract deals is that I will continue to play for Abia Warriors until I finally join Wydad so you will see me in Abia Warriors colours against Enugu Rangers on Sunday.

“Well, Enugu Rangers have done creditably well for themselves in the five-week old league but come on Sunday I think they will be there at Umuahia merely to honour the league clash as we will turn them back empty-handed.

“It’s a local derby largely to be difficult as expected but we will come out top from the derby.

“We must win the three points at stake to chance claiming the top spot so the three points are not negotiable,” said Chikatara to supersport.com.
