International football star, Obafemi Martins has officially
declared he has left Seattle Sounders FC and has now moved on to join Shanghai
Greenland Shenhua Football Club, a Chinese club. In an emotional note on one of
his social media pages, the footballer wrote;
Thank you Seattle. Thank you for everything. Thank you for
the memories that will last a lifetime. Thank you for the endless love and
support, during good times and bad. Thank you to my teammates and coaches for
always believing in me.
Something I feel strongly about is challenging myself. When
I came to Seattle, it was for the challenge. The challenge of playing in an
unknown environment. I can wholeheartedly say that I seized the opportunity in
Seattle and gave everything I had for the club. Continue…

For me it’s now time for a new challenge. After significant
reflection, I have decided to join Shanghai Greenland Shenhua FC of the CSL.
When I left Nigeria for Italy at age fifteen with the hopes of a pro career, I
put everything on the line. I was immersed in an unknown culture. It may be
difficult to understand or relate to, but I’ve grown to appreciate the feeling
I get when entering environments where I’m not a proven footballer.
Rave on,
Oba Martins
We wish him all the best and also hopes he retires
gracefully one day.
