Francis Uzoho and Apoel Nicosia part ways by mutual consent

Francis Uzoho returned to action for APOEL Nicosia for the first time in over a year and kept a clean sheet.

Francis Uzoho and Apoel Nicosia have parted ways by mutual consent, the Cypriot club has announced.

The Nigeria international linked up with Apoel Nicosia from Spanish club Deportivo La Coruna last summer.

The 22-year-old made 19 league appearances for The Legend.

While no reason was given for the mutual termination of the contract, the club wished Uzoho all the best for the future.

“The company APOEL FOOTBALL (PUBLIC) LTD announces the completion of its cooperation with the goalkeeper Francis Uzoho after our team received financial compensation for the termination,” reads a statement on the club’s website.

“APOEL still retains rights in its possible participation in the World Cup.

“We wish Francis good luck.”

Uzoho is currently in Nigeria’s camp ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying fixtures against Lone Stars of Liberia and Blue Sharks of Cape Verde.
