    WHY NIGERIA PLAYERS ARE MOVING FROM TOP CLUBS TO LOWER CLUBS THIS IS VERY SADDEN TO SEE ALL THIS

      You only mentioned two players was looking to see many more but you stopped at two.

      That’s by the way,a player that moved from a Greek first division to a championship side in England in my opinion made a very good move.

       
  • Hope this move doesn’t harm your chances in the super eagles team. Your a regular in the team but going down to a lower albeit competitive league might cause the coach to consider looking for defender’s playing in top leagues. Akpoguma is still a long wait away from playing in the Super eagles, ehizibue is a bit closer if you believe the report of his clearance not being ready yet. But they are other defenders playing in other leagues who if given the chance might surprise everyone. So Ekong tighten your belt very well and prepare to fight to keep your place on the team. This move isnt what I would have expected from you.

    Not the best of moves will likely loose his national team spot to akpoguma kelvin

    He may have had no choice against the pozzos who may have bullied him into accepting, because of their trust him to deliver. We just only have to wish him well. God bless @ Ekong, the ball is your court to sound your talent really loud to the world. The media in England are ever ready to help sound it loudest but also ever ready to rip into shred, very merciless. Nevermind, we your fans will stand by you through thick n thin.
