I Don’t Belong To Esperance – Flying Eagle


Flying Eagles forward
Bernard Bulbwa has dropped a bombshell after claiming he does not belong to Tunisian club Esperance despite agreeing personal and other terms with them in April as they have failed to meet their obligations.
Bulbwa told Tidesports source he and his representatives were yet to get a copy of what he was supposed to have agreed with Esperance and this was despite several promises by the top Tunisian club they will get across the contract to them.
Esperance also promised to pay him part of the signing-on fee upon his signing the contract, but he has yet to receive any cash from them.
“I am not yet an Esperance player,” declared the 18-year-old forward.
“I remember signing some documents at Esperance, but I don’t even have a copy of what I have signed with this club, same thing with my manager.
“They have been promising to send us copies of this agreement for more than a month now and they are yet to do so.
“Even the money they promised to give me for signing, they have not given me the money.
“As a result of this, I am still a free player and my manager is ready to listen to any club who wish to sign me.”
However, Bulbwa, whose stunning goal won Nigeria a record seventh African Youth Championship in Dakar, Senegal, maintained that the controversies surrounding his reported transfer to Esperance will not make him lose focus at the U20 World Cup, which started at the weekend in New Zealand.
“I am fully concentrated on the World Cup because I know what is at stake for both my country and myself,” he said.
“My manager will handle anything to do with my transfer.”
