NSOFOR DREAMS ENGLAND RETURN
Posted: Apr 11, 2012
Nigeria striker Obinna Nsofor has revealed he wishes to return to the English Premier League after his recent loan spell at West Ham.
The Nigeria international forward specially told MTNFootball.com that the EPL is the best league in the world and he enjoyed everything about the league and England while he was at West Ham.
MTNFootball.com: How has it been at Locomotiv Moscow?
Nsofor: It has been good, though the injury I had some time ago slowed down my progress, but I thank God I am good and in great condition now. I hope for better things.
How would you describe Moscow compared to the other cities you have been based in previously?
Russia is a great country and Moscow is a nice city. I am enjoying myself here, but Italy and England are better.
You have played in the EPL, Serie A in Italy and now in Russia, how would you rate these leagues?
They are all top leagues, but I prefer the EPL, it is the best league in the world. I am not saying the Italian Serie A is bad or Russia league is not good but EPL is rated above them all.
I still love to play there before I retire from the game, but now I want to help Locomotiv reach another level in their history.
Talking about your time in the EPL, which game was the most memorable one for you?
That was the 4-0 win over Manchester United which qualified us for Carling Cup final, I didn’t score but I assisted for all the four goals.
Are you truly planning to leave Locomotiv?
No. There is nothing like that. I am happy here, though I have suffered injury, I am looking forward to a better new season.
What has so far been the highlight of your career?
That was winning the Italian Serie A title with Inter Milan in the 2008/2009 season because that was my first major winner’s medal in Europe and it was a glamorous one.
I was also excited when we won the Africa Youth Championship in 2005 and then to reach the final of the 2008 Beijing Olympics. I was looking forward to winning the Olympic Gold but we missed it by a whisker.
Any regrets so far?
No regret as such. But I am not fulfilled that that I have not won the Africa Cup of Nations yet, but I believe I will win that next year.
You have scored some goals for club and country, which one would you choose as the most memorable?
I have scored so many important goals for Nigeria and my clubs that it would be difficult to choose just one goal. I scored the winning goal against USA that qualified Nigeria to next stage at 2008 Olympics and I won’t forget my first-ever goal for Inter against Roma.
My hat-trick for West Ham against Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup was great and can’t be forgotten easily. In the league, I scored two goals against Blackpool. I can go on and on counting.
Finally, which city would you love settle down at after your career?
All the cities I have played would be good for me to settle down but I think I will choose Milan. I love the city more than any other one I have been based in.
