One cap Super Eagles striker Imoh Ezekiel has revealed that he is delighted rejoining Standard Liege on a six months loan after agreeing a four year deal with Qatari side Al-Arabi.
Ezekiel admitted that he returned to Standard Liege because he always felt welcomed at the Jupilier side.
“It’s home sweet home for me,” he began.
“I said that because Standard is my home and I’m happy to be back. The few years I played here I enjoyed it and people and fans have welcomed me so much,” he added.
Ezekiel who joined from 36 Lions in 2012 played 91 games and scored 32 goals for the Rouches in just over two and a half seasons before being transferred to Al-Arabi SC at the end of July 2014, also added that the difference between the Qatari League and the Jupilier League is the level of competition and their supporters.
“For me, here (Standard) is the best perfect place for me. I’m here to help the team so we could finish in a good place at the end of the season but I’m happy to be back.” he concluded.
The promising youngster, whose move to Qatar was widely criticized by football pundits, hit the net just seven times since his 8 million euros summer transfer to Al-Arabi. He earned his first Super Eagles cap in the 0-0 draw with Mexico in an international friendly match after coming on as a second-half substitute for Victor Moses.
