Super Eagles goalkeeper joins Serie A side Udinese in transfer
Posted : 24 August 2023
Super Eagles' talented goalkeeper, Maduka Okoye, has taken a significant step in his career by finalizing a permanent move to the esteemed Italian Serie A club, Udinese.
This transfer marks a new chapter for Okoye, who left Eredivisie outfit Sparta Rotterdam last summer, having garnered considerable acclaim over two remarkable seasons, during which he even secured the distinction of being named the best player at the club.
After his time in the Netherlands, Okoye's journey took him to the English club Watford, where promising opportunities awaited.
His move to Watford was accompanied by the expectation of him becoming the primary choice goalkeeper, a role that was up for grabs following the departure of Ben Foster.
However, football is full of twists and turns, and now, he has ventured to Udinese, a club with a rich history in Serie A, to further his career in one of Europe's top leagues.
The Nigerian shot-stopper's dedication and performance have evidently been recognized by this move, and fans of both Udinese and Okoye will be eager to see him showcase his skills on the Italian stage.
