Association football player
Erhun Obanor is a Nigerian professional footballer who plays as a defender for SpVgg Greuther Fürth.
A native of Benin City, Obanor is a product of the BJ Foundation Academy. He was loaned out at the start of the 2012-2013 season to the second-tier side COD United F.C.. Mid-2013, he was loaned on to top-tier side Bendel Insurance., playing a season there before being sub-loaned to Abia Warriors F.C. until November 2015. In January 2016, Obanor signed a 3.5-year long contract with the Tunisian greats Club Africain, but had to cancel it and return to Nigeria because of dubious transfer fee reasons. In April 2016, he was loaned on by BJ Academy to MFM F.C..
Obanor moved abroad, however, already in July 2017, signing for SpVgg Greuther Fürth in Germany, joining the team in September of the same year, following the 2016 Summer Olympics. However, he didn’t break into the team, and found himself unable to get any playing time, his nationality preventing him from playing for the reserves. His contract was finally rescinded in the summer of 2018, and he moved to NK Rudeš in Croatia.
Obanor is a member of the Nigeria national football team. He was selected by Nigeria for their 35-man provisional squad for the 2016 Summer Olympics.
