Super Eagles goalkeeper, Francis Uzoho is under investigation by the Cypriot Police over a disputed health certificate that was issued to the Nigeria international before he made his competitive debut for Anorthosis against Apollon on February 2.

According to Goal Cyprus, the Deportivo de La Coruña loanee visited the Police Station on Thursday evening as part of the investigation of the TAE regarding the procedure of issuing the 20-year-old’s health certificate.

Anorthosis say Uzoho is frightened and in a bad psychological condition and wants to leave Cyprus immediately despite receiving assurances from the club all was well.

Apollon complained that the Nigerian’s health card was not properly issued, leading to an official investigation by the Cypriot authorities, and they remain confident that they will win the case, with judgement expected on Monday.

The Federation has taken statements from those involved in the issuance of the disputed health certificate and Anorthosis have sought clarification whether Uzoho is eligible for tomorrow’s away game at Nea Salamis.

The Nigeria international was forced to cut short his loan spell with Elche last month after new signing Edgar Badía was installed as first-choice goalkeeper.
