Nigerian defender, Efe Ambrose, has finally joined his Scottish Premiership club Hibernian for pre-season after going AWOL.
According to Edinburgh Evening News, Ambrose returned on Thursday following an extended period of absence, with the player saying it was due to “personal reasons”.
Hibernian boss, Neil Lennon who expressed displeasure over Ambrose’s late arrival for pre-season, stated that he is pleased the defender has finally joined up with his teammates.
“Efe is back,” Lennon said. “He was supposed to be in on Monday but he had a bit of a personal issue to attend to so he is back in the building and there was a full explanation for it.
“He may not be ready for Saturday (against Montrose in the Scottish League Cup) but he should be ready for Ross County game on Friday.
“So that is another body in and the squad are looking excellent, they are in good condition and they have played very well in the three pre-season games.”
