Heartbreaking – injury curtails Bassey’s permanent transfer to Barcelona


Ezekiel Bassey

The quest Of Enyimba international FC star Ezekiel Bassey to join Barcelona on permanent basis has hit a snag after the player sustained a shoulder injury on Monday.

Bassey joined Barcelona on a six months loan deal with the potential of turning it into a permanent transfer.

But the latest injury setback and some unconvincing performances from the 20-year old while playing for Barcelona B Team might just have quashed any dreams of wearing the jersey of the famous Catalan club.

Bassey’s representative was quoted by owngoalnigeria on Wednesday saying the player’s injury layoff has scuppered any talk of Barcelona signing the Enyimba man permanently.

“Bassey’s loan deal is over, he is so unlucky to be ruled out of the season after picking up a shoulder injury. The injury was thought to be a minor one but scans showed it’s worst than initially feared.

“He will be out for four to five weeks, which means as at when he is fit again league would have been over. I feel pity for the lad because this happened when he was beginning to settle down in Spain”.
