Awaziem Relishes Leganes’ ‘Well Deserved Win’ Vs Valencia In Relegation Fight

Super Eagles central defender, Chidozie Awaziem has hailed his club, CD Leganes for beating Valencia CF in a Spanish Laliga encounter as Los Pepineros [The Cucumber Growers] maintained their survival hopes, Completesports.com reports.

Awaziem produced yet another wonderful display in the colours of Leganes as they earned a vital 1-0 win over Valencia on Sunday to boost their chances of escaping relegation.

With compatriot, Kenneth Omeruo now likely to miss the rest of the season, Awaziem lined up in a compact five-man defence as the hosts extended their unbeaten run to three games.

After a cagey opening game, Leganes were awarded a great chance to take the lead via the penalty spot and captain Ruben Perez stepped up to convert the only goal of the match.

The Nigerian international took to the social media on Monday to celebrate the victory, posting on his verified Instagram handle: “Difficult but well deserved 3 points. #Nevergiveup.”

While Awaziem has made 21 starts in 26 league games with seven clean-sheets to show for his efforts, Omeruo has started 22 of 23 games with a goal and five yellow cards to his name.

    What I realize is CS does not talk about our very good players aside a few of Osihmen and chukwueze, yet I keep seeing endless news of Awaziem and Onyekuru. I don’t understand if it’s a pay and I market you scheme you guys are into before you source for news of our true Gem. Please the sport media should be used as a positive tool to help unearth great sportsman and women for our national teams.

    Sports have resumed world wide, CS should tell us what’s happening to people like Raymond our 100m runner how far is he coming back? They should break more news about our falcons coaching decisions, tell us what’s happening to Alampasu, tell us what’s happening to Musa Muhammad, give us news of Segun, wisdom Ugbani of our u17 before we forget them, give us updates, sports in Nigeria is bigger than what you are feeding us at the moment!

    You guys are gradually becoming copy and paste only. Mumuni is now becoming unserious with his hussle, maybe it’s time for a foreign media company to come into the country and take the mantle of them, because all the local agencies are unserious as well.
