Super Eagles and CD Leganes of Spain defender, Chidozie Awaziem has revealed that he considered going into something else during the 3 months suspension of football across the globe, saying the period was very tough for footballers to cope mentally, AOIFootball.com reports.
The on–loan Porto defender however stated that he is happy to see football gradually making a global return and now hopes the world would finally see the end of the dreaded virus soon.
“I feel very happy to be able to play football again after a very long stop. I was very afraid that football was not going to return again; it was a very scary moment for me.
“I even began to find a second option if football doesn’t return but thank God it came back and we have the opportunity to play again and now I just pray and hope that the outbreak ends soon and does not come back to take the sport and claim lives again,” Awaziem said.
The 23-year-old has been regular for Leganes this campaign and will need to do more with his teammates in the final six league games or risk losing their LaLiga status next season.
