After making his home debut in the win against Abia Warriors, Philip Ozor has observed how different it is playing for the People’s Elephant at the Enyimba Stadium.
Ozor returned from a loan spell at Kwara United at the beginning of the season and made his Enyimba debut in the Champions League fixture at Al Merrikh, featuring for the entire ninety minutes. The midfielder’s second appearance came just five days later as he featured for seventy minutes in the Abia derby; and he reckons that wearing the blue at the iconic home ground brought a greater feeling of accomplishment to him.
“When I was with Delta Force, we came to this stadium to play the (NNL) super eight. I was still in the second division then so I didn’t know that one day I would play for this club.
“The next time I played here was when I was on loan at Kwara; I actually played against my club (laughs). But honestly, the feeling is different when you are playing here for this club.
“It is a stadium where big matches have been played, and when I wore the jersey and came to the pitch, something different came over me. There’s that feeling of been at a home where any team that comes must be beaten. All the players feel unbeatable here.”
