Obi Happy To Make Chievo Debut

By Johnny Edward:

Joel Obi is pleased to have made his debut for Chievo Verona in Saturday’s 3-2 loss to Juventus in a Serie A game, reports

The 28 year old Nigeria international was however not happy with the outcome of the encounter.

“So pleased to have played my first game but the result was not what we deserved,” Obi told CSN

“The manner at which we lost was painful.”

Sami Khedira gave Juventus the lead in the third minute, before Mariusz Stepinski headed in the equaliser for the hosts.

Emanuele Giaccherini put Chievo in front on 56 minutes from the spot but a Mattia Bani drew Juventus level before Federico Bernardeschi scored the 93rd-minute winner for the Bianconeri in the encounter.

Obi is expected to make his second appearance for Chievo when they face Fiorentina next Sunday while Juventus host Lazio on Saturday.


  • i am happy for Joel Obi. Hopefully he will not retire soon. We need him in the Super Eagles.
