Super Eagles defender Godfrey Oboabona has stated that he has no regrets leaving European football to play in Saudi Arabia, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

“Nobody is too big for one club or the other. I think the best decision I took in the summer was moving to one of Saudi Arabia’s best clubs”  Oboabona, who won the Africa Cup of Nations with Nigeria in 2013, told Completesportsnigeria.com
