Super Eagles midfielder has become the first foreign player to be signed at an Israeli club after completing a move
Former Hapoel Be’er Sheva midfielder, John Ogu has completed a switch to Israeli second division club, Maccabi Kabilio Jaffa.
Ogu’s move was confirmed on Wednesday as the player parted ways with Hapoel Nof Hagalil where he spent the last 6 months at.
The former Israeli league winner has overcome his fitness challenges and is battling back to play at the top level again, although age proves to be a barrier.
Ogu’s career has seen him play at UD Almeria in Spain and Academica de Coimbra in Portugal. He also had a stint at Saudi club, Al-Adalah before returning to Israel at Hapoel Hagalil.
He has won the Israeli league in the past when he emerged champions with Hapoel Beer Sheva for three consecutive seasons.
He has also represented the Super Eagles at the Confederations Cup, played at the 2018 World Cup and was a member of the Bronze medal-winning squad in 2019.
