Chievo Verona's Nigerian striker Victor Obinna has gone AWOL.

Obinna threatened to quit Italy and return to Nigeria last week after Chievo refused to sell him to Parma.

"We do not know where he is," said Chievo chief Giovanni Sartori. "We are disappointed, but we still wait for him with open arms.

"If he doesn't return, we will have to turn to the Lega for help."
