Okemmiri fears NPFL blackout
Former Kwara United winger, Anthony Okemmiri is worried he may not be in action when the 2012/2013 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) kicks off on March 9.
Okemmiri left the Afonja Warriors during the off-season with hope of joining Caf Champions League campaigners, Enugu Rangers but the move fell flat leaving the player somehow stranded.
Efforts by the attacking winger to reunite with his former club, Kwara United for the new league season appears not to be yielding the desired result.
Okemmiri said he is unhappy after failing to get attached to a club less than 18 days to the commencement of the season.
"I'm not happy starting the league with my colleagues. I'm confused the way things are happening.
"I couldn't cement a place with Rangers for some reasons and my former team, Kwara United don't want me back perhaps they're not happy with the manner I left them.
"I strongly believe that when one door closes another one will surely open. I'm not giving up hope on securing a club to lace the boot for maybe now or in the nearest future," he said to supersport.com.
Supersport.com learnt that hope exists for the estranged player to hit the ground once more for the IIorin-based perhaps not immediately.
Kwara United will face city rivals, ABS on Matchday 1 of the NPFL at the Kwara State Stadium, IIorin on March 9.
