Super Eagles defender, Godfrey Oboabona has said that he is happy at Ritzespur FC in Turkey, saying he is being looked after by the management of the club in the best possible way.
He spoke against the backdrop of the news making the rounds that he was not being featured at his new club because he is deficient in the knowledge of Turkish language.
According to him, “So far I have played two games for the club and even scored in one of the test matches but you will recall that I did not do pre-season with the club and the manager is trying to see my potentials before he throws me in but so far they have been very professional in the way they treat me.”
Oboabona disclosed that at times he will not be dressed for a game and yet he will be paid his match bonus, saying “That shows the amount of respect they have for me and I must say to all concerned Nigerians that I am very happy in Turkey”.
Speaking further, the former Sunshine Stars of Akure captain stated that at the moment, the Turkish side has 13 foreign based players and only six can be dressed for games and most times he’s one of them. That he insisted should indicate that he has a bright future at the club. “I can confidently say that sooner than later I will become a regular at the club, I just pray against injuries”, he said.
