Nigerian defender Egwuekwe reveals offers from Belgian, Serbian clubs

Egwuekwe dreams of playing in Europe.

The Super Eagles and Warri Wolves defender, Azubuike Egwuekwe, has said clubs from the Serbian SuperLiga and the Bulgarian league are interested in signing him.

The defender, currently with Warri Wolves FC, said he may likely leave African Nations Championship, CHAN, camp in Abuja to move to a new club in January.

Speaking to PREMIUM TIMES on Wednesday, the tall defender revealed that his plan and dream were to play in a European club.

The 24-year-old defender disclosed that two clubs in the Belgian league and a club in the Serbian league were interested in him but he was yet to decide or sign on to any. He said he would wait till January.

“I have clubs like Genk in Belgium, Club Brugge in Belgium too, and Belgrade in the Serbian SuperLiga and many others too but I will wait till January before I decide on the place that I would love to go.

“My prayer is to play in Europe. I am working hard, believing that in January, during the competition I will get an offer, and I will go,” he said.

He noted that some of the prospecting clubs had asked him to drop CHAN.

Egwuekwe also stated that he was not ready to join the English premiership as he wanted to start from somewhere, preferably Bundesliga.

“The fact is that you have to start from somewhere. I don’t want to go the English Premiership now. I will like to start in the Bundesliga.”

Egwuekwe commended the U17 boys (Golden Eaglets) presently in the Super Eagles. He said the young players were blending well into the team.

“I don’t see any difference between us and the new boys. We are like one family, and their style of play is beginning to blend with ours,” he said.
