Super Eagles defender was stellar against Rangers on his return to Ibrox in his first UEFA Champions League game
The Nigerian player has revealed he can’t give the jersey he wore against Rangers to anyone after rejecting advances from an Ajax fan on Wednesday.
It was the defender’s first UEFA Champions League game and against the club where greatness looked like a possibility for him, and he said the jersey for such occasions is meant for the frame.
“It was amazing. They were lively, they were singing obviously, so it’s always best when you are winning as well. They give you like a buzz of energy as well to carry on going, ” he told Ajax TV.
“The atmosphere is what makes football. As much as we play football the fans are the ones that make football.
“It was sinking that you’ve made your Champions League debut and it’s one I’ll never forget because obviously it was against my old club but at the same time it was a special night for me.
“Someone asked for my shirt but it’s my first Champions League shirt so I think that’s going in the frame not to anyone. So I’m keeping this one, I’m putting it in the frame. ”
