Etoile du Sahel striker Emeka Opara has turned down the chance to join top Egyptian club Ismaily after they insisted he undergo a trial, the playerâ€™s agent said.
Ismaily president, Emad Soliman, insisted Opara feature in a friendly against Arab Contractors on Tuesday, but the 24-year-old former Enyimba front man rejected the arrangement.
â€œThere was an agreement with Ismaily that Opara was coming to sign a contract,â€ agent Mounir Hassan said.
â€œBut then they wanted to watch him instead, and this wonâ€™t happen. He will not be tested.â€
Opara was lined up to sign for Ismaily on a free transfer at the end of his contract with Etoile in December.
The former Kaiserslautern forward will now return to Tunisia, according to his Egyptian agent.
