Victor Ezeji
Former
Super Eagles goal keeper, Sunday Rotimi says the planned Victor Ezeji Testimonial
would set a precedent for other Nigeria Professional Football League players to
emulate.
Legendary
NPFL striker, Victor Ezeji recently announced his intentions for one final
game, as he hangs up his boots for good after 20 seasons in Nigeria’s top
flight and followed it up with the inauguration of an organizing committee to
make it a match with a difference.
Rotimi
believes such a testimonial match which will be the first of its kind by any
league player in Nigeria should be commended and has called on everyone to give
it the necessary support to ensure it comes to reality.
“This
is the first time that such is going to take place. I think it is a great
achievement. To us the other players in the local league, this is a morale
booster and a foundation for. It’s a good one from Victor and the local players
would give him all the support because this is a great thing he is bringing to
the local scene,” Rotimi said.
The
current Rivers United shot stopper went on to describe Victor Ezeji as a
disciplined and dedicated player whom he was privileged to have played with
both as a team mate and an opponent, saying such traits made Ezeji the fine
player he was during his playing career.
“I
know Victor Ezeji as we have played together. He is a man of integrity. He is
someone that is very strict and he is someone who is very talented. If I may
say, he is one of the toughest opponent I have ever faced being an attacker and
I, a goal keeper. He is a very experienced attacker and he has given a lot for
local football in the country.”

Rotimi
also informed that he will make himself available if called upon to play for
either a ‘Team Ezeji’ or a ‘Team NPFL’ during the testimonial as it would be an
honor to be part of a history making event in honor of a Nigerian football
legend.
I
am supporting him for his bold step and I believe that it is just the
beginning. I will be grateful for the honor if I am called to play because it
is not easy. If I am called upon I think it will be a great achievement being
part of this testimonial match.

The
Victor Ezeji testimonial has been billed for the end of the year to hold at a
yet to be announced venue in the garden city of Port Harcourt
