Coventry city sack Yakubu Aiyegbeni after just 69 minutes of play

Former Super Eagles striker, Yakubu Aiyegbeni, has left Coventry City after playing just 69 minutes of football for the Sky Blues.

Coventry announced on its website that: “The club can announce that former Everton striker Yakubu has had his contract mutually terminated, with immediate effect. Yakubu made three appearances for the Sky Blues, before suffering a hamstring injury against Swindon Town.

“The club would like to wish Yakubu all the best for the future.”

A  video recently went viral showing the 34-year-old practically avoiding the ball for more than two minutes during a match.

Aiyegbeni, who signed for Coventry on February 13 after a short trial, made three appearances, all from the bench, for the Sky Blues during his short career with the club and failed to find the back of the net.
