Egwuekwe returns to Warri Wolves

•Trains with Seasiders 

Super Eagles’ defender,  Azubuike Egwuekwe has   returned to Warri Wolves

after his overseas deals failed to materialise and has started training with the Seasiders ahead of the CAF Confederation Cup preliminary round first leg tie against Burkina Faso’s Racing Club de Bobo Dioulasso.

Egwuekwe was said to have travelled to England to have talks with West Ham United before he later surfaced in Israel with Hapoel Tel Aviv but because a deal could not be agreed on between the towering defender’s representatives and that of Warri Wolves, Egwuekwe elected to come back to the country to continue with the Seasiders.

The defender is among other players that have started real camping at a village known as Otujeremi in Ughelli South LGA of Delta State and not too far from Warri.

The Media Manager of Warri Wolves, Moses Etu disclosed that the Seasiders decided to train for a few days at the outskirts of Warri in order to focus and that their hosts have chosen to have the game played on a natural turf hence their resolve to have the team train on the same surface before travelling to Burkina Faso.

Etu said that the game would be played on February 13 and that Warri Wolves are working round the clock to ensure that all errors noticed during the Super Four tournament are corrected before they can play one or two friendly matches before hitting Ouagadougou early next week.

He said they won’t be participating in any tournament or friendly matches until they perfect their weak points before the first leg away from home.
