Rio 2016 Olympic Games bronze medallist, Stanley Amuzie has sealed a deal that will keep him in a full transfer at FC Lugano of Switzerland, following a spell on loan at the club last season from Sampdoria of Italy.
Lugano have opted to give a career revival to the former Portugal-based left-back, who has two caps with the Super Eagles and played as a regular for the under-23 team handled by Coach Samson Yebowei Siasia at the 2016 Olympics in Brazil.
He will now stick with Lugano on a full-fledged contract for the coming season, after a fairly successful time on loan at the club for the past campaign.
Amuzie will now seek an extension of the fresh start he sought in making the move to Switzerland, to help relaunch his career and boost his chances of getting back in the Eagles’ mainframe.
Amuzie made the best of his first stint at Lugano, on loan from Sampdoria, and, after playing a total of 13 league games, the Swiss club have decided to sign him in a two year contract.
The defender, who is managed by former Eagles striker, Stephen Ayodele Makinwa (Tiger of Lagos), joined Sampdoria in 2015, but only played for their second team in the Italian Primavera A league.
He also played in Portugal’s second division on loan at Olhanense, but his efforts were not enough to convince Sampdoria that he deserved a first team spot.
