Victory Ezeji Retires From Football

After 19 exciting years in the domestic league, former Nigerian International, Victor Ezeji, has brought the curtain down on his glittering career.

Ezeji emerged not only as a distinguished professional, but also the most decorated domestic player with laurels in his trophy cabinet from the League and Cup competitions.

Interestingly, Ezeji, who graduated from the prestigious University of Port Harcourt with a degree in Accountancy, is one of the few footballers, who successfully combined education with professional football.

After winning the 2007 Coca-Cola FA Cup, when he became the first player to win the Top Scorer and Most Valuable Player (MVP) awards, Ezeji headed for Tunisian side, Club Africain, in 2008 and returned to the country to continue his career, in 2009.

“Ezeji will address the media on his retirement and plans for a testimonial in September.

“We’re proud of his career as he has since become a role model to up-and-coming players in the Glo Premier League. Ezeji’s achievements are rare in the modern era, Ojeikere Aikhoje, who heads Sports PR firm, MatchRoom Sports, stated.

Ezeji played for top sides like Eagle Cement (now Dolphins), Sharks, Enyimba and Sunshine Stars, respectively.
