Ikenna happy at Leopards, rubbishes exit talk

24 November 2014, 08:05

Nairobi - AFC Leopards striker Austin Ikenna insists there is no truth in claims he has fallen out with the club over to unpaid wages.

The Nigerian was reported to be in the middle of a financial struggle with Ingwe over unpaid salaries and match allowances, while it was also suggested the Kenyan Premier League outfit are refusing to allow him to return to his homeland for the funeral of a family member.

However, Ikenna has since moved to rubbish any such reports, saying: "Those allegations were all false and bad journalism I should say. I was not contacted by anyone to seek information on the matter or even how I am coping at the club.

"As a foreigner I have to say at the club I have been given all the necessary support both on and off the pitch.

"The only dues the club owes me are the October salary and match allowances. Apart from that there is nothing else.

"I believe, from what the management has told the team, that they are working hard to ensure we get the pay and if all goes well I will be leaving next week for Nigeria."
