Ezeji truly a legend - Frimpong


Enyimba legend and former Ghanaian International, Joetex Frimpong, has described his former teammate, Victor Ezeji, as a Nigerian League Legend, who deserves to be celebrated.

Frimpong disclosed this to naijaleague.com.ng ahead of Saturday’s Testimonial match for Ezeji, who won honours in the League as well as Cup and played a record 20 seasons in the league.

Back in 2002, Frimpong and Ezeji scored 16 goals at El-Kanemi Warriors and Sharks, respectively, to emerge joint top scorers.

“Ezeji is a thoroughbred professional who gave his time to football. I’m pleased to know he’s the first player who retired from the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) to complete his exit with a testimonial.

“I’m not surprised he achieved a record 20 seasons in the Nigerian League.

“We spent one season together (2003), and it was a fantastic time in the colours of Enyimba. I can’t forget his predatory instincts in front of goal. His assists equally enabled me score goals”, he told naijaleague.com.ng.

After leaving Enyimba, Frimpong played in Saudi-Arabia, Tunisia and Switzerland before hanging his boots. 

Interestingly, both players share same management outfit, MATCHROM Sports & Media.
