Bolton Wanderers Part Ways with Chinedu Obasi After Short Stint

Bolton Wanderers, the English Championship club, has confirmed the departure of former Nigeria forward Chinedu Obasi after a brief two-month spell at the club. The announcement came following the expiration of his short-term contract with Bolton.

The club conveyed the decision through an official statement on their website, revealing that Obasi, alongside six other players, wouldn’t be retained by manager Phil Parkinson following the conclusion of their contracts on June 30.

Phil Parkinson clarified the situation, stating, “Derik Osede, Dorian Dervite, Chris Taylor, Jem Karacan, Mark Howard, Jan Kirchhoff, and Chinedu Obasi have all been informed by manager Phil Parkinson that they are free to look elsewhere once their contracts end at Macron Stadium.”

Despite the majority of the squad being on overseas holidays, the club plans to hold further discussions with the remaining out-of-contract players in the coming week.

In his acknowledgment of the departing players, Parkinson extended his gratitude, saying, “I would like to thank the players for their contributions to Bolton Wanderers Football Club and wish them well for the future.”

Obasi, 31, arrived at Bolton in March after a trial period but didn’t secure any appearances for the first team, only featuring for the U-23s during his time at the club. His international career notably includes stints with Nigeria’s Flying Eagles, achieving second place in the 2005 FIFA U-20 World Cup and earning a silver medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympics with the U-23 Eagles. He also represented the Super Eagles in the 2010 Africa Cup of Nations in Angola and the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.
