Former international, Garba Lawal, has stated that he can’t wait to watch the Nigerian players back in actions again in the new season across Europe, which kick-started with the French Ligue 1 last week and the commencement of the English Premier League with the Community Shield between English FA Cup winner, Arsenal and League Champions, Liverpool.
Lawal, who cited Super Eagles striker and Napoli’s new recruit, Victor Osimhen, as one of the players he would look out for among the legions of Nigerian Internationals in Europe, stated that the English Premier League’s Leicester City, Wilfred Ndidi and La Liga’s Villarreal’s Samuel Chukwueze, among others, would attract his audience.
He added that for them to be in their best in order to win their coaches’ confidence that must be determined to soar high this new season.
“Despite the players not having enough rest after the end of the leagues last season across Europe, I am excited and looking forward to watching many of our players back in actions in the new season. Though it won’t be easy for them, it also necessary to see the leagues back after the coronavirus pandemic effect.” (Guardian)
