Ebuehi Eagler To Work Hard For   Regular Playing Spot At Benfica

By Adeboye Amosu:

Nigeria defender, Tyronne Ebuehi, says he is ready to work hard and earn a regular playing berth at Portuguese club, Benfica, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

Ebuehi, 22, linked up with Benfica in May following the expiration of his contract with Dutch club, ADO Den Haag.

The right-back only joined his new teammates in their pre-season training last week.

“The coach (Rui Vitoria) told me what he actually want from me which is to work hard and make myself important for the team,” Ebuehi told reporters on Monday at Benfica’s training base in St. George’s Park, England.

“I have to work hard, train well and we’ll see what happens next. Being in the first team is my main goal, but I have to work hard in training.”

Ebuehi who featured in one game for Nigeria at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia also reckos that he face a tough battle to earn a starting spot in the team due to the quality of players available to the gaffer.

“The quality of my teammates is way above my previous club where I played, but it’s what I expected, because Benfica is a great club and has a lot of good players,” he added.

It’s something that will help me be a better player.

Despite the enormity of the task before him, the young defender says that he has enjoyed his stay at the club since arriving for pre-season training.

“Being here is a dream come true, it’s great to be in such a great club,” he declared.

“Everything is going very well, it’s a good experience. We’re working hard and it’s a different reality.

He also talks about his quality which he hopes will help him cement a place in the team.

“Speed ​​is one of my weapons. I am strong in defence, good in one by one duels and very strong and fast too.
For a right-back, I am an offensive player, ” Ebuehi revealed.

  • Ebuehi, Ogu, and Iwobi are the most disappointed players in this team.
    And if anyone interviews any of them with a guarantee of anonymity, am sure they will not have kind words about Rohr and the failure at Russia. 
    They believed more, expected more and we’re willing to give their akl; but the journeyman called Rohr who came from the desserts of Niger republic without a Valid VISA to nigeria, an illegal immigrant smuggled in from Niger had a different plan.

    He wants to keep earning $30000 per month till 2022? This guy named serious yahoo boy.

    All the Change we Buhari brought.
    Rohr must go!!!
    Our mum don do.

    There is no job in nigeria, yet we are outsourcing jobs.
    Rohr plus go back to France and win a medal first , whether an under 13 world cu, under 17, under 20, or under 23.
    Rohr come back after you have won a medal, ANY MEDAL AT ALL.

    OLYMPICS SILVER!!, Double gbosaa
    Olympic Bronze !!! Triple go saga

    Yet we did not pay him $30,000 per month.
    A prophet is never without honor except in his own tiwn..

    If you pay Siasia what we pay Rohr sew,  organize friendlies like we did for Rohr, pay the player upfront like we did for this team, we would play in the Semi final.

    Fire Rohr. Bring on Siasia, Amuneke;  and Ugbade. 

    Ikpeba, Okocha, Kanu as scouts. 

    Where is a patriotic NFF chairman to do these things.
    May be a new Pinnic. 
    God help nigeria.

    • PeePee 3 years ago

      What is this one saying?

    • Wole Star 3 years ago

      Well said , African mentality, you don’t expect such support would be given to Siasia except you advise Siasia who is the best Coach in the land to go and bleach his skin first

  • We all know it would be best for our football for Rohr to go, but would anyone be brave enough to kick him out. Many Nigerian economic refugees in America, Europe and Australia are topnotch professionals. Can we say that of this pitiable old coach who has nothing to offer? The NFF should release him.
