Super Eagles star sees red against AC Milan, Okoye still missing
I Bianconeri put a stop to Milan’s title hopes, but they will have to do without their Nigerian import for the next game
Forgotten Super Eagles star Isaac Success was sent off in Udinese’s 1-1 draw against AC Milan in their Serie A clash on Saturday night.
Success had been on good form last week with two assists in Udinese’s last two games. However, it was a disappointing night for him at Stadio Friuli on Saturday.
With Udinese leading 1-0, thanks to Beto’s strike in the first half, success was introduced in the 70th minute for Gerard Deulofeu.
The Watford star on loan impressed, making two assists, although he also missed a big opportunity. But after Zlatan Ibrahimovic equalized Milan in added time, Success received his marching orders.
The former Granada man was sent off after initially blocking Mike Maignan from launching a quick counterattack before pushing a Milan defender, who reacted to the challenge.
Meanwhile, in the Dutch Eredivisie, Maduka Okoye missed a second straight league game for Sparta Rotterdam, who played a goalless draw against SC Heerenveen.
The 22-year-old goalkeeper has not played for Sparta since leaving the clash against Ajax with a shoulder injury.
