Nigeria forward Obafemi Martins has denied a report linking him up with a Saudi Arabia football club on a deal worth $1.5 million
An online media platform had reported last month that Martins, former player of Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua, rejected the offer in Saudi Arabia on the ground that the oil-rich country does not have top night club.
“How on earth will I even reject an offer because of absence of night clubs in a place? Fortunately, there is no even a deal for me in Saudi Arabia that I will reject,” Martins explained .
“it is rather so unfortunate, the people behind this report supposed to get their findings right.”
The 34-year-old striker popular called ‘Obagoal’ last played for Chinese outfit, Shanghai Shenhua where he sustained a hamstring injury.
The injury sidelined him for a lengthy period and he was certified fit in May this year.
“I am an open person and friendly to any journalist who wants to know anything about me. I think putting facts right and balancing stories are some of the hallmarks of a good journalists,” Martins said.
