Individual Is Good, But The Team Safety Is Paramount At The Moment – Maduka Okoye


In-form Nigeria’s Super Eagles and Udinese goalkeeper Maduka Okoye has admitted the praise people bestowed on him but insisted that the team must survive relegation.

Despite the heroic efforts of the Nigerian International, Udinese still suffered a 2-1 defeat to Inter Milan in a keenly contested match.

The 24-year-old shot-stopper said they were not scared and no tension in the team locker room.

“Praise is nice, but at the moment, Udinese is more important than individuals.

The fight for salvation is intense, and the Zebrette is aware of the situation we find ourselves in and how much this means for us, the club, and the fans.

I don’t see fear in the locker room, he specifies, but we feel the tension, as happens in this sport when you experience periods like that.

Now ranking is the most important thing in our lives, but we want to think step by step. Now, in our heads, there is only Rome”, he said.
