Kazeem set to dump Crown



Prime FC forward, Babatunde Kazeem said he plans to severe tie with the Oshogbo-based side.

The possible exit of the experienced goal machine will most likely sound off the death nail for the side already hit by massive departure of valuable players.

The appalling financial state of the hitherto darling Federation Cup giant killers has cast doubt over its preparedness to re-enact the killing instinct at the sub-regional competition.

As at the last count over 60% of the team's work force has walked away including top scorer, Isah Akor, who has joined Cup holders, Heartland.

Kazeem said if he did not leave on time for good he may suffer psychological breakdown.

"I'm planning to leave Prime for good and look elsewhere to continue with my trade.

"I must leave very fast before I lose my sanity and dignity. The situation is increasingly growing from bad to worst and nobody cares to listen. Players are leaving in drove on daily basis to other clubs while some abandoned the domestic scene to other countries.

"Nothing is said about it, nothing is being said about the team's new season and Wafu Cup campaign.

"Three seasons no sign on fee, no bonuses, its too poor the state of the team that made everybody proud few months ago," said the former Julius Berger hitman to supersport.com.

Unconfirmed report linked the goal poacher to possible stint at fellow Wafu Cup campaigners, Enyimba and few others.

Prime won bronze at the 2012 Federation Cup competition at the expense of Nigerian champions, Kano Pillars. The NNL side equally saw off the challenges of NPL sides, Wikki Tourists, Enugu Rangers, Enyimba while they split points with Sharks in the run up to the bronze feat.
