Nigerian midfielder, Ogenyi Onazi has opened up on how he convinced the club to sign two Nigerians to their lost of players.





John Mikel Obi and Anthony Nwakaeme linked up with their country mate at the Turkish club, Trabzonspor.

Onazi spent five years with the Medical Park Stadyumu outfit, which he joined in 2016 for £3.6m.

Meanwhile Trabzonspor signed Nwakaeme in 2018 after his impressive performances for Hapoel Be'er Sheva, where he scored 35 goals in 95 appearances in the Israeli Premier League.

Also, John Mikel Obi completed the Nigerian trio in 2019 as a free agent. Although, Mikel contract has been terminated his contract with the Black Sea Storm by mutual agreement in March after expressing his concerns about the league continuing amidst the coronavirus outbreak.


“It was fantastic and before Tony [Nwakaeme] came, the president told me that he was trying to sign this Nigerian player and he asked me if I know him,” Onazi told Brila.

“I told him Tony is a fantastic player and he should do whatever he can to bring in, so when he finally signed him and Tony scored two goals in his second game, the president came back to me and was so happy.

“After the Afcon in Egypt, the president came back again and told me when he wants to bring Mikel and I should help them speak to him.

“Then I discussed all night with Mikel to come over too and I was injured then, so hopefully when I recover we will play together, but unfortunately we did not spend much time together.”
