Emenike eyes Yobo’s Fenerbahce reunion


Spartak Moscow striker Emmanuel Emenike dreams of returning to Fenerbahce, according to Turkish newspaper, Sabah.

“My dream is to play for Fenerbahce at the Sukru Saracoglu stadium,” Emenike said. “When I was playing for Karabuk I always told myself I would play for Fenerbahce one day but when I finally achieved my goal I was forced to leave.

“Since then I have always hoped of returning to Fenerbahce.”

The Yellow Canaries released an official statement confirming that negotiations are underway.

Spartak manager, Valeriy Karpin, said: “If somebody wants to leave we don’t want to keep them locked up.”

Fenerbahce signed Emenike from Karabukspor for €9 million in 2011 but the Nigerian international was sold to Spartak for €10 million without playing a single game for the Yellow Canaries after allegations that he was involved in a match-fixing scandal.

He was however acquitted after prosecutors were unable to prove his involvement in the scandal.

Emenike, however, still has three-years left on his contract with Spartak and the Turkish club could spend as much as €15 million to sign the striker who finished as top scorer at the last Africa Cup of Nations.
