Alampasu Speaks About Portugal Move

2013 FIFA U17 World Cup champion, Dele Alampasu has expressed disappointment about the news going round concerning his transfer to Portuguese top division side, Estoril FC.
 
SL10.ng along with well respected Lagos based journalist, Wale Joseph put a call through to Dele Alampasu who was part of the Super Eagles team at the 2014 African Nations Championship (CHAN) in South Africa where the home based Eagles pick a bronze medal.
 
"I am really disappointed with all the stories in the news about my transfer to Estoril in Portugal. It seems many people are not interested in my development and career but only what they can gain, I am a human being and nobody's property. I don't owe Mr Adebayo or Mr Olanrewaju anything, rather they are the one that owe Me". Alampasu remarked in a telephone chat.
 
He noted that Olusola Orelaja, his agent has done everything within in his power to secure the transfer to Estoril FC, after spending time on trial in Belgium with Genk FC, Spain with Oviedo FC and In Portugal with Braga FC, He has been spending his own money for flights, hotel, kits and pocket money every month since 2013, even before I went to Abuja for the Under 17 National team camp.
 
Alampasu stated that Mr Orelaja his agent has also been helping both Mr Ojo Olanrewaju and Mr Adebayo financially during this period, so I don't understand why they are talking and making all these allegations in the press against him.
 
"Yes, Mr Olanrewaju took me to Future Stars at a very young age, with me spending over four years there, Before, Mr Adebayo now took me to Abuja Football College, without the knowledge of Future Stars Academy management. Adding that it was for this reason I gave both of them and their families a lot of money from the gifts and cash I received after the World Cup. " he said.
 
Speaking further, He disclosed that Mr Adebayo still owes him money which he borrowed him, saying I have not spoken to him since March 2014.
 
"Even, Mr Ojo Olanrewaju did not own Future Stars, so I don't understand why they are talking to the press about the transfer because it's none of their business."
 
On the issue of Remo Stars FC, he informed that they only helped him to actualized his dream of signing a professional contract and also developing him better, they didn't make any money from the free transfer because I was physically present at the negotiating table in Portugal.
 
"On the issue of Abuja Football College, I spent only six months with them after playing and winning gold with Lagos State at the 2012 National Sports Festival, the next is they wanted to sell me to Mexico after the World Cup but I refused, my father too was not comfortable with the move to Mexico, my agent as well is not happy with it, because it was not in my interest. Since then they didn't come with another offer or opportunity. Now I have a contract with a club they are not happy with it.
 
"Its a free transfer, I am going straight into the first team and not the academy and this makes me happy. So I am begging all this people to leave me alone to further my career as I still have a lot to learn in the game". he concluded.
