Ismaily release Nigerian forward Odah Marshal by mutual consent

Nigerian forward, Odah Marshal, has left Egypt’s Ismaily after having his contract terminated by mutual consent.

The 27-year-old had only joined the Yellow Dragons last January from ENPPI after being released by the Petroleum club due to health conditions and signed a two-and-a-half year deal at the Ismailia-based club.

Marshall was ENPPI’s top scorer in the first half of the season, scoring six goals in 14 games across all competitions, however, he failed to recapture his old form at Ismaily, as he failed to register any goal or assist in 14 games in the Premier League and the CAF Champions League.

His last appearance for Ismaily came in their 2-0 loss against Zamalek on April 18, before missing out on the club’s last five games for technical reasons.

This led to the club part ways with the forward, and the former Nigeria U23 international is set to return to his country on Sunday.

Ismaily are having a disappointing season and currently sit seventh with 42 points and will officially not compete in any African competitions next season as they were knocked out of the Egypt Cup quarter-finals by Ittihad of Alexandria.
