Tony Edjomariegwe gives self kudos after debut season abroad

Former kano Pillars and Nasarawa United flying winger Tony Omayarue Edjomariegwe has given himself kudos after his debut season outside the shores of Nigeria. The ebony complexioned master dribbler joined Morocco Bolota League clubside Olympic Club du Safi in December 2016 and after an indifferent start, soon found his feet and commanded a regular shirt and thereafter endeared himself to the seaside City club’s numerous teaming fans.

“It’s been a wonderful experience in Safi in particular and Morocco in general. The Moroccan fans love good football and support their clubs massively and wherever we are playing, home or away, the atmosphere is always charged and electrifying”, said the Nigerian international.

“The Moroccan league is well organized and in my 13 games for my new team I scored 2 goals and created many chances and also many assists came out of these chances. As ever, I made good use of my lightening pace and good dribbling skills to create chances for my team mates. Unfortunately we were not able to qualify for a continental ticket but it’s been a worthwhile experience,” he revealed

“I am very happy in Safi. I have enjoyed every bit of the experience and it’s a good stepping stone to greater things for me.Even though in football you never know the next step, but for now I am very happy in Morocco with Olympic safi,’ he concluded.
