2013 AFCON hero Sunday Mba wants to return to active football 2 years after he last kicked the ball

AFCON 2013 hero Sunday Mba is looking for a club more than two years after he last kicked a ball.

Mba, 30, was the best player in Africa in 2013 after leading Nigeria to her third AFCON title in 2013.

Sunday Mba scored the only goal of the game in the final as Nigeria pipped Burkina Faso in the final.

Mba joined France second division club Bastia from Enugu Rangers in a controversial deal.

‪He left for Turkish side Yeni Malatyaspor in July 2015- where he netted eight goals in 55 appearances.

He was released by Turkish club Yeni Malatyaspor in September 2017.

‪”As a free agent things are not really that easy, but you can only be hopeful,” he told BBC Sport.

‪”My desire is to get back into club football and I am working hard to start playing again.

‪”Football is everything I have and I cannot just give up. I believe there’s something out there for me.

‪”First you’d need the luck to find someone that believes in you and ready to give you a chance,” he said.

‪”I’ve continued to stay in shape, train daily and be physically ready for any opportunity.

‪”I still have something to give and will continue to stay mentally and physically ready.”
