ISL 2022/23: Nigerian forward Sylvester Igboun leaves NorthEast United

Only after being in the club for about 10 days, Sylvester Igboun has reportedly left NorthEast United FC. The Nigerian’s arrival was officially announced on the club’s twitter handle on 12th October. The 32-year-old played just one match for the Highlanders.

In a sudden turn of events, NorthEast United’s latest addition Sylvester Igboun has left the club due to the poor facilities provided by the team. The Nigerian was the Highlanders’ sixth and final foreigner for the ISL 2022-23 season. The striker joined the Guwahati-based side on a one-year deal ahead of the 2022-23 Indian Super League (ISL) season. The Nigerian joined the team very late and wasn’t available for selection for the first two games.

His arrival in Guwahati was delayed due to some visa issues as he was stuck in Russia. He joined the team in the third week of October and took some time to settle in. The Nigerian finally made his first appearance for the Highlanders in a home clash against East Bengal.

The Highlanders fans saw a glimpse of the player’s skills when he came on against East Bengal where NEUFC lost 3-1 to the Kolkata-based side. However, things weren’t to Igboun’s liking which prompted his decision to leave the outfit. According to sources close to the club, Sylvester wasn’t particularly happy with the city, the facilities and other factors in general. This will be a huge blow to the Highlanders as they will be left with just five foreign players.

He came on and transformed NEUFC as a whole. Sylvester injected a fresh air of energy and gave the home fans a glimpse of what he brings to the table. He was really quick with his on-the-ball movements, which provided great entertainment to the home fans despite the team side ending up on the losing side.
