Ghanaian midfield rock Mubarak Wakaso is left without a club after his outfit in China Jiangsu Sunning announced that they will no longer be able to operate due to financial reasons ahead of the 2021 season, the club announced on Sunday.
Mubarak Wakaso joined the Chinese outfit in January 2020 from Deportivo Alaves on a three-year deal for a free reported to around €4 million.
The Ghanaian midfielder helped the Nanjing-based outfit win the 2020 Chinese Super league, but just 108 days after winning the triumph, the Chinese outfit has announced that it will no longer be able to operate due to financial reasons.
“Due to the overlap of uncontrolled variables, Jiangsu cannot guarantee permanence in the Super League and AFC. Over the past six months, the club has gone to great lengths to ensure the club’s succession, without missing out on any opportunities.
“Having reached the deadline for registering for the 2021 season, despite being recruiters, we have to make an announcement: with immediate effect, we will stop managing the club’s operations, at the same time we expect companies that want to discuss the future with us”, the club announced in a press statement.
The unfortunate event makes Wakaso who’s currently with the Black Stars preparing for the African Cup of Nations qualifiers against South Africa and São Tomé in March a free agent.
