    It’s a step up from Hungary to Turkey. At least, you can be considered now for NATIONAL Duties now.

    Good player,bundle of skills!

    Turkish league will present a platform for you to showcase your skills,talents which you have aplenty to the world.

    Since moving to Europe where you have excelled playing in Hungry,sadly,places like that are not known for it’s football and gets little or no recognition and media coverage,now you have made the right move and we hope you make the most of it to make up for lost times.

  • Now, the boy is moving up and getting close to the radar of Rohr. Just do your thing to the best of your ability and be consistent at it and you might soon be a regular SE player. The current coach is a lover of merit and offers equal opportunity to all eligible footballers of Nigerian nationality. So, no shaking.

  • That’s a great move Obinna Nwobodo, you’ve done yourself a great favour with the transfer to Gotepze. One only hope that you’re able to build on your achievements from Hungary. Cheers!!!

    A bundle of talent, best of luck…..you have the sky to dwell on… we know what you have in stock, your ability is never in doubt….. it was injury that frustrated you…. you would have been in one of the top clubs in Europe by now… the only Nigeria player at the moment that can score goals from any part of the field… this guy is phenomenal while playing for  Enugu Rangers..hope he still have those skills ….

      I want to believe he’s still got it otherwise Goztepe wouldn’t make the effort to sign him.

  • Like the guy was born twice, 1994 and 1996, pre-read your content before publish CS pls. Good move son, Turkish league far better than the Hungary.
