Former Super Eagles Captain, Uche Okechukwu, has described the new Enyimba International FC Stadium in Aba as simply the best and world class.

The former super eagles defender who was fondly called “gentle giant” during his playing days, commended Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State for ensuring that such world class facility is in the state, saying that the facility will attract the best football competitions to Aba.

He made his feelings known after he was conducted round the stadium, which is still under reconstruction, by the Contractor, Moni Michelle.

“I have been told about the work going on at the Stadium, and I have also seen pictures on social media, so I decided to come and see for myself.

“What we have here is simply the best. The turf is world class. The facility we have here today will attract the best football competitions to Aba. Enyimba FC can now boast of having a world class pitch for their games. Every footballer will like to play here. It is one of the best I have seen. This is lovely and good. I can feel the pitch even as I walk round it. It is very soft. It’s marvelous. I can’t wait to see Enyimba play here again and I am happy this is happening in our time.

“I must commend our Governor, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu, for bringing this world class facility to Aba. It will encourage interest in football and other sports.”

Okechukwu is currently funding a football academy in Aba, known as Greater Abia Football Academy.

Speaking while conducting the ex-footballer around the stadium, said that the pitch is ready for Enyimba Players to resume training while waiting for approval from relevant authorities.
