On 27 September, Olisadebe scored the opening goal for Henan in a 2–0 win over Shanghai Shenhua to regain lead in the league less than ten minutes before injuring his knee. Initial diagnosis showed that he had torn his cruciate ligament of the left knee, and the injury could end his entire football career. Further results confirmed that he injured his patellar ligament and would only miss the rest of the season. He was nominated for the MVP awards two years consecutively only to be 2nd in both occasions. Due to his performance he has been granted by the government of Henan province citizenship.


In 2008, he was offered a deal with Chinese Super League club Henan Construction. In his second match with Henan, the third round of 2008 Chinese Super League against Liaoning, he scored 2 goals. In first season at Henan he scored 12 goals in 26 games in the Chinese super league.

On 4 January 2006, he joined Portsmouth until the end of the 2005–06 season. He made his debut ten days later, replacing Richard Hughes after 61 minutes of an eventual 0–1 Premier League defeat to Everton at Fratton Park. A week later he made his only other appearance for the club, playing the final 37 minutes of a 0–5 defeat at Birmingham City, this time in place of Vincent Péricard.


Olisadebe moved to Panathinaikos where he scored 24 goals in 74 matches.

Jerzy Engel, the national coach who brought Olisadebe into the fold, resigned following Poland’s exit from the World Cup, and barring a handful of sporadic appearances that resignation ended Olisadebe’s association with the national team as well.
