Wednesday, 6th January of the New Year witnessed the craziest of antics with respect to transfers, the human mind is capable of so much but who would have thought that a player will undermine history and bragging rights at the altar of personal selfish gains?
Antwerp fans and neutrals were thrown into shock when striker, Didier Lamkel Ze turned on at the training ground in rival’s shirt, all in an attempt to force a move, opening the very old joke of Peter Odewingie and his failed attempt to force a move to QPR from Stoke City.
The Nigerian’s 200-mile plus round-trip to London from the Midlands on the final day of the transfer window resembled something from a comedy.
However Lamkel Ze has apologized after he arrived to training wearing the shirt of the club's fiercest rivals Anderlecht, Lamkel Ze was denied entry into the training ground on Monday and angered the club's hierarchy with his actions.
The 24-year-old has been linked with a move to Greek club Panathinaikos to play under former Antwerp manager Laszlo Boloni.
However, he decided against this and posted an apology on the club’s official twitter page on Tuesday; "I sincerely apologize to the club and the Antwerp supporters because they are magnificent and wonderful fans who have always supported me," he said.
