Eagles Midfielder Agbo Relishes New Role As Defender


By Richard Jideaka, Abuja: 

Super Eagles new invitee Uche Agbo has expressed gratitude to his coach in Granada CF Lucas Alcarez for his transition from a midfield player to a defender for club and country. 

The former Flying Eagles midfielder who is now making waves in the Spanish La liga told that he was signed as a midfielder by Granada but the coach after some time told him that he has the qualities of being a very good defender and that he would turn him to one of the best in the league.  

"I never believed I would ever play as a defender in a top league in Europe but after playing sparingly as a midfielder for Granada, I think I am a better player than when I first went to Europe in 2013. I am enjoying football as a defender and I want to improve my game and be among the best in LaLiga," Agbo said. 

"It is gratifying that I never got a look in as a midfielder by the national team selectors but after just six games into the new season, my coach and other officials have been praising me for my performance so far and I got a late invitation to the Super Eagles. I cannot ask for more."
