    Awaziem and Omeruo relegated?? Its not good for us, hope they can get another top flight team to play for Next season.
    , Awaziem has to go back to his parent club, Porto and fight for a shirt next season, As for Omeruo, my heart bleed for him, after several years of globe-trotting as on loan player, he finally signed a deal with Leganes and now, Relegation, so unfortunate, as for Chukwueze, congrats to him for Europa League berth with Villareal, Azeez also had a decent season with Granada, I hope Etebo will make his deal permanent with Getafe, no need going back to lowly Stoke City, Congrats to Azubuike Okechukwu ,for Clinching the Turkish title with Insatanbul Baseskihir, Wishing all the Nigerian players better luck next season.

  • The only time I really wish my belove club RM loose, but unfortunately VAR was not in favour of leganes , I find it difficult to comprehend while that penalty wasn’t given against Luca jovic when considering the soft one RM have gotten since the league resume, take heart boys, you can come back stronger next season , i write you guys off against your last 3 opponent, Valencia, athletic and Real Madrid, but you guys got 7 points  and almost got the maximum point needed to beat the drop if not for VAR.

    We need to be realistic with our submissions, Awaziem is an average player he can’t start for Porto he should go and look for an average club where he will get playing time to improve his craft then he can think of coming back to Porto and fight for a starting spot.

    Congratulations to Azubike and my old favorite Robinho of Real madrid.
