–Ex-Eagles star wishes to continue playing
Super Eagles striker to 2002 African Cup of Nations in Mali, Victor Agali has told Complete Sports that his flourishing football career was ruined by injury that forced him out of the round leather game, saying if not for the injury, he would have still been playing.
Agali who played for the ex-internationals at the Football For Hope tournament held in Lagos at the weekend said he has lost a lot to the injury.
“Injury is one thing I will never wish my enemy because it is not a good thing to any footballer. I was doing well until I sustained this injury and since then, I have not been okay even if you see the way I played today, you will discover that I just managed to play,” begins Agali.
“I know that I cannot play football forever but it ruined my football career and I have lost so much but there is nothing I can do than to thank God for being alive today. If not for the injury, I would have still been playing football.
The former Hansa Rostock striker who also reacted to the Super Eagles failure to qualify for the 2015 African Cup of Nations billed to hold in Equatorial Guinea said Nigerians should learn how to forget the past and plan for the future.
“It is very unfortunate that Nigeria will not be at the African Cup of Nations but that has come and gone and we need to start planning for the future, I believe that with proper planning, we can get it right again,” Agali submitted.
