SJK terminates Anatole Abang's loan

Not good news for Abang.

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

SJK has terminated Anatole Abang's loan  A statement on the club's website described the player's attitude as "not the right level" for SJK, and advised that the Finnish team "sees no reason to extend the contract for longer".

Abang had joined SJK in March on a loan deal that was to run until July, with the option of an extension to the end of the 2018 season. The player had appeared in all six of SJK's league games to date, making his second consecutive start on May 6 against FC Lahti - which was also his first full 90-minute appearance for the club.

SJK's recent league form has been poor, and Abang - a forward - had yet to register a goal for the team.

Abang has now been prematurely ejected from three clubs in less than a year. In August 2016, he was loaned out to Danish club Hobro by the New York Red Bulls, after his playing opportunities with the MLS club appeared to have dried up. The loan was supposed to last until the summer of 2017, but Hobro cut it short at the end of January. The Red Bulls let it be known Abang wasn't returning to them, and for a couple of months the player was listed as on loan despite having no club to play for: he was on loan to nowhere until agreement was reached with SJK in March.

Now, it would seem likely Anatole Abang is on loan to nowhere again.
