Udinese have confirmed that their Nigeria international midfielder Christian Obodo was rescued from kidnappers on Monday.
The 28-year-old was taken by a group of armed men in his home city of Warri, Nigeria, on Saturday morning while on his way to church and a ransom was demanded for his release.
A statement from Udinese read: "Thanks to his mobile phone signal, Obodo's position was identified and the police were able to act to free him without needing to pay a ransom."
The Nigeria international said after his release: "I thank God that I am free."
Obodo, who played on loan at Lecce last season, has spent his entire career in Italy, having also played for Perugia, Fiorentina and Torino. He has won 21 caps for Nigeria.
