Lagos - Nigeria midfielder John Ugochukwu Ogu says he is
relishing the prospect of playing in the next Israeli Liga Ha’Al season with
his club, Hapoel Be’er Sheva.
The 27-year old joined the Israelis in the summer of 2014
from Portugal’s Academica de Coimbra, and had an impressive debut season,
playing 38 matches in all competition.
And he has told News24 exclusively that he won’t be leaving
the Israeli Cup runners-up this summer.

“I’m happy at the club,” he says, “They treated me well last
season and they have shown they need me.
“I will be staying with them because I’m happy there and it
was a good season for me last term but disappointing that we lost the Israeli
“So as of now, I am not thinking of leaving. The club showed
great faith in me last season and I hope to keep showing them what I can do,”
The Lagos-born left-footer has had a less than stable career
in Europe, having played in Slovenia, Portugal and Spain.
And he says he wants to get some stability for his career.
“I just want to stay at a place you know. I love Israel,
it’s a great country and I love the club too,” he added.
