- Leon Balogun's club in England Wigan Athletic are on the verge of relegating to League one
- This is because of their latest action of going into administration which is against football rules
- Balogun recently joined Wigan on a permanent move from Brighton
English Championship side Wigan Athletic are now on the verge of relegating into the League One following their announcement of going into administration which is a big crime in football.
This latest development will be a great setback for Super Eagles defender Leon Balogun who recently joined the side with the hopes of resuscitating his career.
Leon Balogun joined Wigan on a permanent loan deal from Brighton where he failed to get regular playing time before he left.
Wigan explained that they have been facing financial difficulties due to the effect of the deadly Covid-19 which is disturbing the whole world.
They are now in talks with some people to save them in their bid not to face severe punishment from football authority in England.
English FA have for many years kicked against any club going into administration in which they have laid down punishment of 12-point deduction.
And with Wigan currently on 14th position on the Championship table, deducting 12 points from what they have gathered means they will have to go down to the second division.
This will definitely affect Leon Balogun's chances of making a return to the Super Eagles unless he moves to another big club in England or elsewhere.
Previously, Legit.ng had reported how Super Eagles defender Leon Balogun tendered an apology for the mistake he made while playing for Nigeria against Madagascar at the 2019 African Nations Cup.
Balogun's mistake against Madagascar in Super Eagles' final Group B game at the AFCON made many Nigerians livid.
He had the chance to clear the ball from danger after receiving a pass from John Ogu, but the Premier League star miscalculated his steps and gave Madagascar the goal.
Madagascar went on to win the match 2-0 as they scored another goal in the second half to finish Group B as toppers with seven points.
Football fans kicked against Leon Balogun's mistake against Madagascar with many telling Gernot Rohr not to give him a chance again in the team.
