Nigerian star who plays for Barcelona cries out for help from Davido, others, to return home amid coronavirus crisis

Super Falcons striker Asisat Oshoala is reportedly finding it difficult to return home as reports have it that she is stranded at her base in Spain due to the coronavirus induced lockdown.

GOAL reports that the Barcelona striker as well as Namibia’s Zenatha Coleman who plays for Valencia, have indicated that they would like to return home to spend time with their families.

This is coming as a result of the cancellation of the Spanish Primera Iberdrola earlier this month due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Both stars are the latest players that have called for help in a bid to return home from after SL Benfica striker Thembi Kgatlana had written to the South African Football Association (Safa) following the cancellation of the Portuguese Liga BPI in April.

Oshoala contributed 26 goals in all competitions for Barcelona, including 20 in 19 league games to emerge as the league's second-highest scorer during the 2019-20 season.

The four-time African Women's Footballer of the Year winner, who observed the Ramadan fast in Spain, revealed she wants to return home to join her family.

She wrote in Pidgin English: "Abeg who get private jey wey him no dey use for now. Please comman carry me from barcelona to Lagos, I want to go home."

Oshoala recently won her maiden Spanish Primera Iberdrola title with Barcelona Femeni. The country's football body crowned the Catalan club champions following their inability to conclude the season due to deadly coronavirus.
