Newly acquired Nigeria’s Super Eagles forward Gift Orban is already causing unrest at the French Ligue One club Olympique Lyon.
Orban joined the former Champions of Ligue One this winter from the Belgian Jupiler League side KAA Gent.
French Journalist Romain Molina claims that the striker has already exhibited anger management issues.
The claim is seemingly being backed up by others in the comment sections of the tweets in question, one of which claims that the Super Eagles frontman was seen shouting emphatically at a journalist in a mixed zone despite only being asked a simple, non-controversial question.
” Orban achieved the feat of alienating part of the Lyon locker room because he was so nasty to his new teammates in training.
Much courage to the club staff to manage his case if he does not calm down”, Molina stated.
Lyon find themselves in the relegation play-off spot, having played a game more following a 3-2 home defeat to Stade Rennes.
Orban played 45 minutes off the bench for the home side.
