Former captain of the 2016 Under-17 team of Nigeria Igho Ogbu has started life at his loan side Levanger on a positive note on a personal level by posting an impressive showing despite his team losing 1-2 loss to Aalesund.
Ogbu joined the second division side on loan from league giants Rosenborg on the 3rd of April, where he is expected to get games that will aid his development as he won’t get much games at the star studded league giants.
” I am happy with my performance but sad that we lost and I also picked up a yellow card . In subsequent games, I hope to improve on my performance. This is just the beginning “, he told Owngoalnigeria.com
The central defender who is in line for a call up to the Nigeria U20 team who are presently in camp ahead of the start of qualifiers for the 2019 African Youth Championship signed a five year deal with Rosenborg last month.

Plucked from the famous Jos based Gee-Lec Football Academy, he made his debut in the Nigeria Professional Football League at the age of 17, and he was details away from joining Polish side Legia Warsaw one year ago.
