Finidi, Nwaneri ready for Victor Ezeji’s testimonial
Super Eagles’ former superstar, Finidi George, and two-time CAF Champions League winner, Obinna Nwaneri, are among the former internationals who are willing to feature in the Victor Ezeji testimonial scheduled for December 10 at the Yakubu Gowon Stadium, Port Harcourt.
The event is a special football and other activities set aside to honour one of Nigerian league’s great ambassadors, Victor Ezeji, who played for Sharks and Dolphins, both of Port Harcourt, Enyimba of Aba, Heartland of Owerri and Sunshine Stars of Akure.
Speaking in Port Harcourt yesterday, Chairman of the Main Organizing Committee (MOC), China Acheru, noted that Ezeji is one of Nigeria’s most decorated players who played his football in Nigeria and deserved to be honoured.
‘‘The event will take place over three days starting with a press parley with fans and the media on December 9. The game proper will take place the next day at the Yakubu Gowon Stadium, which will be followed by a dinner later that evening. A thanksgiving service will be held on Sunday morning, the December 11,” he added.
Ezeji, who is the only Nigerian to have played 20 seasons in the country’s top flight, appreciated God for helping him in achieving this great feat. He also paid tributes to his late parents for grooming him to become a better person.
