Emenike: I cried like a baby

Emmanuel Emenike, revealed how prison made him cry like a baby after he was arrested in 2011 for alleged involvement in a match fixing scandal.

The Nigeria international 28, who has recently joined West Ham on a six-month loan from Fenerbahce, said that he couldn’t bear the trauma of being held in prison like a common criminal. He also revealed that he went to counselling shortly after his prison experience.

I was treated like a common criminalI cried like a baby because it was strange to me.

At a point, the trauma was so much for me to bear, so I had to go for counselling. After I was released, it was difficult for me to concentrate. There was no way I could remain with Fenerbahce and be focused.”

The Super Eagle striker was eventually cleared of all charges after the scandal and returned to the Istanbul giants two-seasons later for €13 million from CSKA Moscow.
