Hoffenheim won’t give ex Super Eagles star Obasi new contract


Chinedu Obasi won’t be signing a deal with Bundesliga side Hoffenheim for the second time in his career.

The striker has been training with the club, in a bid to LA d a contract, but the club has revealed both parties won’t be heading towards the same direction.

Obasi, 34, was released by his former club AIK Solna of Sweden after his contract expired and has been struggling to find another team.

Hoffenheim manager Alexander Rosen told Bild that the club is only happy to assist the forward by allowing him to train with them.

“He will not play a role for us for the new season.

“He is now 34 and hasn’t played for a long time.”

“We can support him as we have done so far or through advanced training with the U23s, we will be very happy to do so for this wonderful player and person.”

Obasi previously featured for the club between 2007 and 2012, but an injury slowed his promising career.
