Onazi terminates contract with Lithuania club


Nigeria midfielder, Ogenyi Onazi, has thanked Lithuanian side Zalgiris for their hospitality after terminating his contract with the club by mutual consent.

Onazi joined the A Lyga side in February, scoring two league goals in 19 appearances, as well as hitting target in their UEFA Champions League qualifier against Linfield in a 2-1 win.

The Nigerian has, however, explained that his decision to quit the club was due to a better offer for his services by another club.


“It’s a very difficult time to say goodbye. In the contract we had, it said that I could leave anytime I had an offer and at this time it came very fast so we had to take the option and I will like to thank the club president for giving me the opportunity to show that I’m not injured, which I really appreciate,” Onazi explained in an Instagram video.

“To the fans, I want to thank them also for supporting us and me personally for everything they’ve done and I’ll keep supporting them.”

Onazi has now terminated his contract by mutual consent with the last three clubs (Denizlispor, SönderjyskE and Zalgiris) he has played with since ending his stay with Turkish side, Trabzonspor, in 2020.
