Onazi Relishes Return From Injury-Induced Setback, Canvasses Support For NFF

By Johnny Edward:
Super Eagles vice captain, Ogenyi Onazi,is delighted to be back in action for Trabzonspor two weeks after sustaining a tight hamstring’m injury, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
The 24 year old’s comeback for Trabzonspor saw the Turkish Super League side return to winning way, defeating Antalyaspor 2-1 on Saturday.
Trabzonspor had failed to win in their previous two games.
Goals from Burak Yilmaz and Yusuf Yacidi for Trabzonspor ensured Emre Gural strike for Antalyaspor counted for nothing in the encounter.

“Very important victory away from home, feels really good to be back doing what I know how to do best.. thank you Lord,” Onazi tweeted on Saturday.

Trabzonspor are now fifth in the Turkish Super League table with 49 points from 31 games.
The former Lazio midfielder also weighed into the recent court case which involves Chris Giwa and the current Nigerian Football Federation, canvassing support for Amaju Pinnick-led Board.
“No…not again. The worst periods of our football in recent past were those times when we had these ‘court’ distractions. Let’s not go back to those days. We need to support the NFF, the World Cup is just some days away. 🦅 🇳🇬.”
Onazi has made 18 league appearances for Trabzonspor this term.

  • Onazi, I remember 2014,when you were the defensive midfield rock for the Super Eagles; so much so that Blaise Matuidi had to break your leg to neutralise Nigeria’s midfield before 2 goals for France knocked Nigeria out of the World Cup.

    That has been arguments in certain quarters whether or not your game has developed, improved and diversified since then.

    Today, Ndidi is the name on everyone’s lips.

    For me, if nothing else, your experience, exposure and commitment are also vital to the team.

    Stay fit and go and do Nigeria proud in Russia.

  • I knw is d man 2 rely on

  • @deo dat was then dis man is getting old likewise u.bt i knw is going 2 WC

  • @Ayo, yes Onazi is getting old but with age comes mature play, wisdom in timing tackles and overall vision and ability to read the game a make key decisions.

    Even Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Mersut Ozil are not particularly young. Does that mean they are useless?
