Yakubu Aiyegbeni Is Back In English Football, Trains Coventry City

Yakubu has a fantastic scoring record in English football and is training with Coventry City
Yakubu is back in English football and training with Russell Slade's Coventry City. The former Premier League powerhouse struck fear into defenders during spells at the likes of Everton, Portsmouth and Middlesbrough. 

With Coventry propping up League One, Slade is hoping Yakubu can replicate his impressive goal-scoring record in England and fire the Sky Blues to safety. 
Yakubu used to terrorise Premier League opposition defences with his raw physical ability

The striker led the line for Middlesbrough between 2005-07 and scored 25 goals 
He told the Coventry Observer: 'As you know, he's played in the UK and his scoring records are very good. 'He is 34 now, his last club was in Turkey. He hasn't played for a while which is the only concern, but great pedigree. Goals wise, it is one in two.

'If that is the sort of thing he can do for us then we've got to be interested.'

The 'Yak' is well travelled so far in his career, having plied his trade for 13 different clubs. 

His most successful spell was with Portsmouth between 2003 and 2005 when he scored 29 times in 65 appearances. Yakubu's record in the English top flight is not to be sniffed at with 96 goals between 2003 and 2012. 

At 24th in the third tier, Coventry are a club in turmoil and the fans are at loggerheads with owners Sisu. With the Sky Blues eight points from safety, Yakubu could prove to be an unlikely hero for Slade and the beleaguered supporters.
