Troost-Ekong Delighted To Play In Premier League

William Troost-Ekong is looking forward to playing in the Premier League with Watford next season, reports Completesports.com.

The Hornets will make an instant return to the English top flight following their relegation last season.

The Nigeria international, who linked up with the London club from Udinese last summer played a crucial role in their promotion.

“It was a long way coming. Eight years ago, I came close to doing that with Spurs, but the dream is now a reality,” Ekong told NaijaMade on SuperSport.

“The Premier League is the best league in the world. There is a lot of prestige as everyone follows the league and you test yourself against some of the best players in the world.”

The central defender had to give up top-flight football in Italy to play in the English second-tier Championship to get to the Premier League.

“I thought about that (decision) for a long time and discussed with the family,” he revealed.

“I was ready to put in the work and take on the challenge.

“I took a step back to make progress.”

    Ndi Troost-Ekong made a mistake by going to the English Championship. Ndi Semi Ajayi is far better than Troost-Ekong, una see una sef so? All aficionados where una dey? Ekong will go to Afcon 2021 as an English Premier League player while your Ajayi will play pepeye football in the championship and Omeruo will play tolotolo football in division 2 in Spain.
    Hatred be like hair for some people, shave it off and it comes back. I don talk my mind.

      You never know,Omeruo may go as a Laliga player as well,it still hurt me that we will have to pick between Sadik and Omeruo in Laliga for next season,we will see,they are both our own though.
