Nasarawa sign ex-World Cup star



Supersport.com can report that Nasarawa United have contracted former Super Eagles' midfielder, Justice Christopher.

The deal, it has been learned, is on a short-term that will last till February or March when Christopher will leave to join a Qatari club.

Christopher, 30, who was a playing member of Nigeria's team to the 2002 Fifa World Cup in Japan and South Korea, has been training with the promoted Nigeria Premier League (NPL) side for past two weeks.

"Justice Christopher has joined us here (at Nasarawa United) for the new season. He's been here for two weeks now. But his contract will be on a short-term that will see him leave us by February or March at the latest as he is going abroad to sign a deal with a club in Qatar.

"But for now, his experience with the team will count, as he has played in the league before and has even played in the highest football competition, the Fifa World Cup," said a member of Nasarawa United's backroom staff.

However, the former Katsina United man might end up not kicking a ball following uncertainty surrounding the commencement date of the 2012/2013 season, earlier billed to start on December 1.

The ex-Levski Sofia man made more than ten appearances for Nigeria's Super Eagles.
