Career[edit]

In 1997, Agali joined French club Olympique Marseille.[1] Finding it hard to establish a first team place, he quickly moved to Sporting Toulon Var and subsequently to Germany, where he played in Hansa Rostock and Schalke 04. From 2005 to 2007 he played in the Turkish Premier Super League, returning to German Bundesliga team Rostock in August 2007. At Rostock Agali did not do well, after just one goal in 23 league matches he was given a free transfer to the Greek club Skoda Xanthi FC. After a season with Greek club Skoda Xanthi the Nigerian striker has signed for Anorthosis Famagusta.

On 27 December 2009, he was arrested at Schiphol airport near Amsterdam for carrying fake passports.[2]

He moved in summer 2010 to the Chinese Super League club Jiangsu Sainty.[3]
