I Want To Forget Last Season, Says Ezeji

One of Sharks Football Club’s strikers, Victor Ezeji, expressing his distraught in missing out on winning a trophy with the Premier League side, has said he would want to put behind the 2008/2009 season.
In a telephone interview naijaligue.blogspot.com, the striker, who joined the Nigerian club from Club Africain last season, explained that he was hoping that Sharks FC would finish among the top three clubs in the Premier League, only for it to finish in ninth.
After renewed hope was restored in the side’s performance in the Federation Cup when it got to the final, Ezeji’s aspiration came to a halt when Enyimba crashed the party even before it started.
“It has been a really disappointing season for us because we had so much hope and we ended up getting nothing out of the season after pushing so hard. For me personally this is a really disappointing period, which I would want to forget in a hurry,” he said.
Asked if it was due to missing out on grabbing N1 million each and a brand new car each that is his reason for feeling pained by Sunday’s loss, Ezeji responded that having played for Sharks between 2000 and 2002 without winning a silverware, he had believed that the past season would change that.
The 28-year-old forward was keen to become part of the side that would end the 37-year-old jinx of the club without a domestic title.
Sharks FC also known as the Blue Angels was formed in 1972 and has never won any national title in Nigeria in spite of being ranked as one of the best sides in the country.
“My pain is that we missed the chance of winning a first title for Sharks. This club is regarded as one of the big clubs in the country. Before the match, we had self-belief of ending this “trophyless” history of the club. That is the only disappointment I am taking with me back to Port Harcourt and that is why I just want to forget last season and move on to the next,” said the former Dolphins Football Club and Enyimba man.
