EPL: Nigerian forward rejects signing three-year contract with Premier League giant




Nigerian forward, Bobby Adekanye, has disclosed that he rejected signing a three-year deal with Premier League giant, Liverpool.

The 20-year-old said he rejected signing the deal after he was left out of Jurgen Klopp’s first team pre-season tour of the United States.

He also said that he will leave Liverpool at the end of the 2018-19 season when his current contract with the Anfield club expires.

”But that didn’t happen in the end. That is disappointing and it has contributed to the fact that I do not want to renew my contract,” Adekanye told Voetbalzone.

”If they promise such things and it doesn’t happen, I don’t know what will happen if I sign for three years.

”That confidence is no longer there, even though I still greatly respect the club.”

Adekanye added: ”They don’t just extend for three years, so maybe there was a schedule behind it. But I no longer have faith in that.

”In terms of money, things are fine, but you have nothing if there is no perspective behind it. Money will come later, I now need playing minutes.”
