Balogun Thrilled With Mainz’s Win Over Leverkusen

By Johnny Edward:


Nigerian defender Leon Balogun is delighted to be part of the FSV Mainz 05 side that moved up to fifth place on the Bundesliga log after a heartwarming 3-1 home win over Bayer Leverkusen.


A brace from Yunus Malli and another strike from Jhon Cordoba ensured Javier Hernandez's late strike did not spark a comeback in the encounter.


Balogun who was on from start to finish in what was his 15th appearance in the Bundesliga also congratulated his teammates for earning their 11th win of the campaign.


"I'm beyond happy and proud to be part of this amazing team!! Congratulations to ourselves guys," Balogun tweeted after the game.


Mainz have 36 points from 23 games and they are away to Bayern Munich on Wednesday.
