Kennedy Chinwo turns down move to Albania

The Ex-International says the club's low financial standing means a move to the European nation is committing football suicide
Former junior international, Kennedy Chinwo has turned down a move to the Albania second division side, KS Tomori Berat after the club informed the Nigerian he would have to take massive pay cut to become their player.

Chinwo who played for Dolphins in the Nigeria Premier League last season was hoping to join his manager and chief coach of the club, Hasan Egilmez in the tiny European nation but the 2001 U17 World silver medallist told he would not lower his standards and monetary worth after agreeing to step down to the lower division.

"I am not joining KS Tomori Berat again because the club does not have money to pay me. I can't play for absolutely free at this stage of my career.

"I am no longer going to Albania. I'm remaining with Dolphins until a good offer comes from Europe or anywhere in the world. I won't decree where exactly I would like to go now at this stage of my career.

"I am willing to go to anywhere I will get a fresh challenge," Chinwo told

Chinwo who won the Nigeria Premier League(NPL) title with Dolphins during the 2010/2011 season was also in Singapore on trials recently.
