In 1974, he was transferred to the German team SG Wattenscheid 09,[2] though he had also considered an offer from Stoke City due to his English ancestry.

In 1983, he played for Atletico Junior of Barranquilla, Colombia where he ended his career due to personal matter. He retired from football later that year.[citation needed]
