Stephen Eze, the defensive pillar for Locomotiv Plovdiv, has revealed uncertainty regarding his future at the Bulgarian club, citing no definitive assurance of his stay for the upcoming season.
Joining Locomotiv Plovdiv on a two-year deal from Kano Pillars in January, Eze’s move followed an exceptional performance at the African Nations Championship (CHAN) in Morocco, where he showcased his defensive prowess.
While expressing his admiration for the club and the city of Plovdiv, Eze emphasized the unpredictability of his continuity. “I like everything in Lokomotiv and Plovdiv. I hope to stay, but I cannot guarantee that 100%,” stated Eze in an interview with mobile.sportal.bg. He commended the coaching staff for consistently motivating the team, acknowledging the collective elevation in performance under their guidance.
The 24-year-old defender, listed among the ten defenders in Nigeria’s 30-man provisional squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, remains resolute about earning a spot in the final squad. “All 30 players who are on Nigeria’s provisional squad list will try to make the most of the opportunity handed them to play at the World Cup,” Eze affirmed in an interview with mobile.sportal.bg.
Having amassed 13 appearances for Locomotiv Plovdiv across various competitions this season, Eze’s dedication and skills have been instrumental. He is poised to join the Super Eagles’ camp in Uyo on Tuesday, gearing up for a chance to solidify his position in Nigeria’s World Cup roster.
As Eze remains poised for his national team duties, his contemplation about his club future amplifies the anticipation surrounding potential shifts in the football landscape ahead of the new season.
