Kwara United goalkeeper, Dele Aiyenugba, said his former club, Enyimba international still hold a special place in his heart.
Aiyenugba was in goal for his new team Kwara United in their 1 – 0 win over the record Nigeria Professional Football League Champions last Wednesday at the Ilorin Township stadium.
Aiyenugba had good spell with Enyimba, winning the CAF Champions League twice, the Nigerian league and Federation cup before moving to Europe.
Speaking with Enyimba’s media after the rescheduled match day two fixture in Ilorin, Aiyenugba said it was emotional match for him to face the club in a competitive match.
The former national team goalkeeper also spoke about his love affair with the Aba Elephants.
“It was very emotional for me,” admitted Aiyenugba after the match.
“It was at Enyimba that I began to make my name so the club still has a place in my heart. I remember everything I won with them.
“I still want to appreciate Enyimba, Anyansi (the club chairman) and the fans. No matter that I played against Enyimba, I still give them respect and love them so much.
“It was the first time for me to play against them so it was special. I just needed to be professional to do my job because right now, I am a Kwara United player,” he told the club media.
The match against Enyimba saw Aiyenugba record his second clean sheets for Kwara United since making his debut against Jigawa Golden Stars last Sunday.
