Super Eagles midfielder Ramon Azeez has disclosed that scoring against Barcelona in the Last Liga back in September left him with few friends.
The former Almeria midfielder put his side ahead in the game they went on to win 2-0 win against the Champions at the at the Estadio Nuevo Los Cármenes.
Azeez who made a stunning return to the Super Eagles for the first time since 2014 world cup said while some congratulated him for the performance, other threatened him not to return to Lagos.
“Before the Barcelona game, our coach told us that we just have to go out on the pitch strongly because we started the season very well,”
“I feel very happy that some people that never believed in us before the game called to congratulate and rejoice with us.”
“I got a lot of messages that night. Some people insulted me that they lost their bet due to Barca’s defeat, while some called to congratulate me.
“Some of my friends that are Barcelona fans called me that I scored against their team that I should not worry that it won’t be that easy next time.
“Some people even sent me messages on social media that I shouldn’t come to Lagos that if they catch me, they will deal with me. So, I told them that it was nothing that I just have to do my job and protect it as well.”
Azeez was a 78th minute substitute against Lesotho, however, providing the assist for Victor Osimhen’s last goal as Gernot Rohr’s men romped to a convincing 4-2 victory over the Crocodiles in Maseru last Sunday.
