Eromoigbe joins Wolves

Posted: 24 November 2009 Time: 11:36

Richard Eromoigbe has joined Nigeria Premier League club Warri Wolves after being released by Russian club FC Khimki in September.

Wolves Media Officer Azuka Chiemeka confirmed the move, but said the player will only start playing from next weekend.

"Eromoigbe has agreed to join us for an undisclosed fee and he will start playing from next week," Chiemeka told

Eromoigbe, a former junior international, was a member of Nigeria's squad to the 2008 African Nations Cup.

In July 2008, he went on trial at Derby County, but manager Paul Jewell passed on offering him a contract.

Eromoigbe played some of his best football with Bulgarian side Levski Sofia, whom he helped win the Bulgarian title in 2005.

Thats a good move Eromoigbe but dont expect anythng better. you need to play to keep fit and work out your next move and coming back home is if not a better idea.Beware of Nigerian league defenders that will want dismantle your ankle with the referee over looking .i wish you the best of luck .

This shows you the state of our football,just because this guy played in Europe he was called up to play for the Super Eagles at 1 point,it just shows that tactically the NFF have no clue,if they knew what they where doing it would not matter where a player is playing just where he fits in on your ultimate plan.
I'm sure Nigeria has good players in the NPL but coaches & officials are so lazy they rely on agents to point out nobodies who play in obscure teams & leagues to occupy positions in our national team even though they are not going to improve our game!PEACE

THE Crowd will come back to the stand when teams start winning away matches. Each year look at our league tables team position only move up when a team is playing at home.Only few clubs in Nigeria win away matches because home team and officials want to win at all cost by bribing the referees.

I see many Nigerian players languishing in europe and asia. Some have had to hang their boots due to their inability to tie up good contracts, Some have had to play for nothing if only the clubs can do their visas for them.
Richard has taken a bold step and we should laud him rather than mock him.

If the array of Nigerian players who couldnt find good contracts in Europe returns home, our league will be better off. i hope this trend continues and the rush to europe by our players reduce for now so we can rebuild our local league for the better.

This is just one example of the side effects of age cheating. This guy did very well in the junior days but how did the Super Eagles benefit? He was called up when he had already passed his prime and that is the case with majority of our current players.

It has been established that MOST footballers are in their prime between the ages of 24 and 30, but some up to 32. After this, their performance tend to drop. Sadly for us here in Nigeria, our players spend their prime in the junior teams and by the time we ezpext them to begin to perform for the super eagles, they are past 32 years. You can not cheat nature and age will just catch with them just like this case here, Aghahowa, Ikedia, etc. It is no coincidence that Osaze Odemwengie is our most consistent performer today.

When some of us here speak against age-cheating, it is not that we are less patriotic but we are only concerned about the long-term effect on our senior national team. I hope those of you who were calling Adokiye names can just see his motivation for once.

@stan..i didnt disrespect nigerian league,i was just stating the obvious.the league is riddled with all sorts of problems ranging from bad bad facilities,dodgy match officiating,poor media coverage,governors who play with players careers,making silly promises and using football platform to promote their political images,to religious groups who destroy and mess up the pitches in the process of trampling mr devil during crusades and vigils.players will continue to rush overseas and i dont blame them for that.if the football structure and management is right,the league will be amongst the best in Africa.@polly,dont start what you dont know anything about,mr eromoigbes comeback or his inability to hit it big in europe has nothing to do with his age,by the way Aghahowa is still very active in his former club,you,d be pleased to know.Nigeria is one of the countries with enormous potentials and resources but the elite division players still go to training on okadas risking injuries and getting paid peanuts.

@ Billion.......I dare to say that you are certainly an agent of govt and by extension the NFF.Your govt propaganda posts is finally busted.Wish you and your bosses burn in HELL.How dare you ask Nigerians to reflect decorum in their language when they express their fraustration with the state of the nation and their football?I am sure Yardua,all those in govt and the NFF are very considerate when they feed on the blood of their fellow citizens by looting the nations Commonwealth.
Like Doyin,me too am out of this forum and i ask all other serious minded forumites to do the same.You and other Vultures like you in this forum can continue to reign supreme-you are just a blind Bat.
Hopefully,when KON is tired of your govt propaganda,they will kick you and your cohorts out of this forum.

It might interest you lads to know that the Nigerian league now pay some good money better than some of this so called European leagues except for the likes of the first division teams in italy,england.spain & germany...if the lad decides to come back home methinks it is better than the lower leagues in Europe..After-all the likes of Eneramo(highest paid african league player) earn more than some so-called premiership players & you might be shocked to hear it....If every footballer follows this foot step our league would have been better off but we have decided to propagate an ethnocentric culture that does not help anybody...The likes of Richard with his experience is what our league requires to improve its standard....
