Coventry Terminate Yakubu Aiyegbeni’s Contract after 3 matches

Former Super Eagles striker, Yakubu Aiyegbeni, has ended his contract with English third-tier club Coventry after featuring for the side only thrice.

According to a statement published on the club’s official website on Wednesday, the contract binding the Aiyegbeni to the club was terminated with immediate effect based on mutual agreement.

“The club can announce that former Everton striker Yakubu has had his contract mutually terminated, with immediate effect,” the statement read.

34-year-old Yakubu, who had also played for Middlesbrough and Portsmouth in England, signed for Coventry in February on a deal that’d see him at the club till the end of the season, but alas!

“Yakubu made three appearances for the Sky Blues, before suffering a hamstring injury against Swindon Town.

“The club would like to wish Yakubu all the best for the future,” the statement added.

Although Coventry won the EFL Trophy last Sunday, they are rock bottom of the League One table and are bound to relegate to League Two by next season.

But Yakubu was not involved in Sunday’s final victory at Wembley.
