Real Betis midfielder Nosa Igiebor in in hot water today after he failed to return from African Cup of Nations duty.
The 22-year-old was part of the Nigeria squad that triumphed in South Africa on Sunday, but the attacker has, according to reports, stayed in his home country rather than return to his club.
Pepe Mel was expecting Nosa to be available for the game against Espanyol this weekend, and is likely to be fined heavily by the Verdiblancos
