Top Dutch club PSV Eindhoven has terminated the contract of Nigeria Olympic midfield star Rabiu Ibrahim. The sack was with immediate effect.
Ibrahim failed to break into the PSV first-team and was subsequently fired as the contract his England-based agent negotiated for him was strictly a performance-based one. The Dutch club activated a clause in Ibrahim’s contract which stipulated they can cancel his contract at any time. There are also three other central midfielders at PSV now which makes the competition even stiffer for the young Nigerian. According to MTNFootball.com, a top agent based in Europe said: “It’s a very sad development but it was mainly because of the contract, which did not protect the player at all. The contract was skewed in favour of the club
I have watched the player for the second team of PSV. He has potentials but he is not a player for a top club like PSV.”
The former Gateway of Abeokuta star has played only a handful of games for PSV mostly as a substitute. In March, the former Nigeria U-17 star signed a three-year contract just before his 20th birthday. This was after he impressed during trials. Last year, he was released by top Portuguese club Sporting Lisbon after he also failed to make a first-team appearance in three years.
