Ogu Bids Be’er Sheva Fans, Teammates Goobye In Tears

Nigeria midfielder John Ogu was in tears as he said goodbye to Hapoel Be’er Sheva fans after appearing for the club for the last time in Saturday’s 4-0 home defeat to Maccabi Tel Aviv in the Israeli league, Completesports.com reports.

Ogu will become a free agent next month after opting not to extend his contract with the Isreali club.

The 31-year-old who was honoured after the game on Saturday also later took to the social media to thank the club and his teammates.

“Came as a boy and am leaving as a man. Thank you @HBS_ , thank you my teammates,” Ogu tweeted on Sunday.

The Nigeria international who joined Hapoel Be’er Sheva in 2014 from Portuguese side, Academica scored 13 goals in 140 appearances for the club.

Ogu won three Israeli Premier League titles with Be’er Sheva and two Super Cup titles.

He has been linked with a move to Turkish side Trabzonspor where he will reunited with former Hapoel Be’er Sheva Anthony Nwaekeme and another Nigerian Ogenyi Onazi.

    I remember watching Ogu play in Houston against 
    Mexico, 2013. Very promising. Unfortunately, he has 
    has not  been lucky with the starting 11 with Super 
    Eagles. As for a future club, age is not on his side.
    He should make the remainder of his time worthwhile.
    Time is ticking ……….

    No matter what the future holds, Ogu made his mark in the hearts of millions in Israel. ” l came as a boy and l left as a man” That is a winner legacy he gave to his fans in Israel. You gave it your all. A man can not ask for more.
