Premier League legend Victor Ezeji has been given jersey number 19 to mark his 19th season in the league. Ezeji teamed up with Sunshine Stars of Akure at the beginning of the second half of the 2013/2014 season after a protracted transfer saga to Crown FC of Ogbomosho was thwarted. He made his debut for the club in a 1-0 victory over Nembe City on Sunday, entering the fray in the second half of the game.
The former Enyimba of Aba striker is one of the oldest players in the league. He has featured for several clubs in the country and won trophies and individual accolades at every one he has played.
One striking feature about the University of Port-Harcourt graduate is that he scored in every season he played in the league since his debut for Sharks in 1996. With league, Cup, national and international honours to his name, Ezeji has made his mark on the Nigerian scene.
According to an official of Sunshine Stars; “Ezeji will be bringing his wealth of experience to the club and we are looking forward to see him leading the club to success.
