He was in Qatar for six months after which he was sent packing following the non-payment of his medical bills and the expiration of his visa.
His bills were to have been footed by the sports ministry.
“My career is at stake. The doctors told me I must do a corrective surgery for me to be able to work again and play football,” Oduduwa told Sporting Life.
His Olympic team coach Samson Siasia will spearhead an appeal to save the career of the highly promising central defender, who helped Nigeria win the 2015 U23 AFCON in Senegal, which qualified the country for last year’s Olympics.
“Segun Oduduwa is a big prospect and he has the talent ro be Nigeria’s best central defender,” he said.
“I would be glad if the (sports) minister) and the NFF could assist him to go for this corrective surgery.”
