By Sulayman Bah Yusupha Yaffa a Serrekunda-born Gambian is pondering pastures newYusupha Yaffa after the end of his contract with German Bundesliga’s Eintracht Frankfurt, Foroyaa Sport can report.The 18-year-old joined the German club in January after impressing on trial following his release by Italian giants AC Milan. He left Milan after failing to break into the A-team and his search for minutes took him to Frankfurt on a short six-month deal. The striker was acquired with promise of first-team football depending on his progress with the team youth set-up. But hardly Frankfurt‘s coach considered the Gambian a first-teamer and the player’s off-the-pitch issues didn’t help either. Growing disillusioned over lack of playing time, the attacker who also has dual citizenship with Italy and Gambia is pondering moving away with Romanian champions Steaua Bucharest said to be his preferred destination. Yaffa’s agent Mauro Cavalli confirmed possibility of a move away from Germany is being explored but insists no deal has been signed yet. Yaffa is no stranger to Gambian football fans. He was first invited to the Gambia U-20 team in 2008 under Coach Paul Put while he was with Serie C side AC Cuneo 1905.]]>
