Visa issues had delayed the Nigerian international’s early arrival to six caps at the club, but when he finally arrived what he found was frustrating.
Sylvester Igboun, a former FC Ebedei and FC Midtjylland striker, took up his post in the East at the beginning of October.
He joined Indian Super League side North East United but barely spent a month before leaving the club due to poor housing conditions.
Igboun was the club’s sixth and final Nigerian ahead of the new season.
The former Nizhny Novgorod player had visa delays from his old base in Russia but lit up the fans in his first match of the season against East Benghal.
His movement and frankness were positive for the side which lost 3-1 at home in their only game for the club.
According to Khel Now, other players on the team have also complained about the team’s accommodation facilities.
“Sly left the club’s facilities due to poor accommodation. He was very disappointed to see the inventory the club provided for him,” Khel Now quoted a club source as saying.
“Apparently many players are unhappy with the living conditions. But it was Sylvester Igboun who chose to leave first,” the source said.
The club’s players and officials were accommodated at the Raddison Blu Hotel last season but have booked apartments near the stadium for the team this season – accommodation Igboun is not happy with.
