Mubarak Wakaso eyes Panathinaikos exit
Mubarak Wakaso says he is seeking a contract termination with Greek giants Panathinaikos.The midfielder only joined the side in summer during 2016 from Russia’s Rubin Kazan for three years.
He claims the club neglected their contractual obligations a few months after he signed for them.
“Before I joined them [Panathinaikos], I spoke to Mike [Michael Essien] who told me the club was having some financial problems,” Wakaso is quoted by FMG.
“But the club officials assured me I will have all what is due me paid and that is why I signed for them.
“Initially things were okay until they started skipping payment of my salary and then I had to start paying my own rent when it was the club that was supposed to pay.
According to the 26-year-old, the unbearable situation made him push for a loan move which saw him return to Spain with Granada in La Liga during the January transfer window.
“It was becoming too much and that is why I had to leave on loan and I don’t think I will go back.
“The contract will be terminated and I will be joining a new club soon,” Wakaso mentioned.
