Super Eagles’ and Lokomotiv Plovdiv of Bulgaria defender, Stephen Eze is confident his team can overturn their poor run of form after suffering another disappointing 2-0 away at Star Veliko Tarnovo over the weekend, AOIFootball.com reports.
Eze who was an unused substitute for the clash, told AOIFootball.com exclusively that despite the poor run of form, the season has been largely good for him and he hopes the club can begin to change their fortunes despite winning just one of their last 10 league clashes.
“The season has been good for me, although we have not really had the kind of result we want of late.
“We will definitely bounce back. Sure football is like that sometimes, it doesn’t go the way you want but we’ll give everything; sometimes we don’t get it right but hopefully it will be better soon and the result we also be good,” Eze said.
When asked if the Bulgarian League has improved his game far better than his time in Nigeria, the former Kano Pillars star was quick to point out that he was a good player then and has definitely improved on that since his arrival in Europe.
“The level was good even before coming to Bulgaria, right now I’m only facing another system of football because the African style and the European style are quite different,” Eze concluded.
The 24-year-old has featured in 19 games this season for Lokomotiv Plovdiv and remains keen on a national team return despite having been overlooked by the Eagles’ handlers after failing to make the squad to the last world cup in Russia.
