Akwa United never had confidence in me - Kayode blasts club management

It's first against third this weekend as the Peace Boys host the Promise Keepers, and the midfielder is raring to go all out against the table toppers

Following Akwa United's decision to part ways with him, Olufemi Kayode claims the club management had no confidence in him.

The Promise Keepers ended their relationship with the lanky goalkeeper earlier in this week.

And Kayode in his parting message says he was not given enough support during his trying times.

"This year I had the feeling that I didn't give the team my best. I knew during the first round that I wasn't consistent. It happens in football," Kayode told Goal.

"It was so sad that the management of the team never gave me the confidence to get back to my best. But it's all good because I'm going somewhere better with God by my side."

Kayode, however, offered his appreciation, saying: "To the good people of Akwa Ibom I'm very sorry things turned out this way. It was something beyond my control. I will miss all your support and love. Akwa United still remain the family I know, but I have got to move on.

"God bless the commissioner for sports, permanent secretary and Honourable Isong Isang. All have done a whole lot for me. I have fought a good fight with the team and wish Akwa United the best in their future endeavours," he added. 

Kayode is reportedly on the radars of FC IfeanyiUbah, Enyimba, Kano Pillars, Abia Warriors and Rivers United.
