'I made mistakes in my career', says AFCON 2013 winner Sunday Mba

Sunday Mba, who shot Nigeria to the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) glory in South Africa, has admitted he made some mistakes in his football career.

Mba, selected by late coach Stephen Keshi in the Super Eagles squad for the 2013 AFCON, shot himself into limelight when he helped Nigeria beat Ivory Coast 2-1 in the quarter-final.

His lone goal for the Super Eagles against Benin handed Nigeria their third AFCON trophy.

That 2013 hero is now clubless six years later. He has been out of club since 2017 after leaving Turkish side Yeni Malatyaspor.

Looking back the years, Mba admits some mistakes in his decision making, which really affect his career badly.

"It is a long story. Football can be funny, it can be cruel at times. I made some mistakes with my decisions thinking that I made the right decisions and it turned out bad, Sunday Mba told Opera News in Abuja.

"Some of the decisions we make as footballers can turn out to be good or bad, but life goes on. I feel good, still pushing, still working hard and glad that I am physically fit," he added.

Ahead of the January transfer window in Europe, Mba said he is very optimistic of making a move back to Europe.

"I look forward to the January transfer window with great expectations. I am looking at anywhere that is good for me that I can play football. It is very important for me," he said.
