Leon Balogun has joined the small group of Super Eagles players who went on social media to celebrate John Ogu’s return after a seven-month absence from football after the Midfielder sealed a move to Saudi Pro League side Al-Adalah FC.
Ogu walked away from Hapoel Be’er Sheva after five years at the club and became a free agent; sitting out the first half of the 2019-20 season.
After Ogu confirmed the deal on his social media Balogun and Shehu Abdullahi were among the early birds to congratulate the midfielder.
“Patience is a virtue – delighted for you bro. And you will see…all you had to go through to get there, will make it an even bigger success. Shine on my brother 🙏🏽 @ogujohnugo” Balogun tweeted.
