Bartholomew Ogbeche won the golden boot in the recently concluded Indian Super League and hopes to commit his future to Hyderabad FC. He maintained that he is in no rush to decide on his future. Ogbeche was the talisman for Hyderabad FC scoring 18 goals and helping them to their first title. The team finished fifth in the previous edition and Hyderabad FC fans will be hoping to retain the Nigerian for the next edition.
“I would love to continue with Hyderabad FC but it is not in my hands, it is in the hands of the management but I would love to continue, for now, I am enjoying the moment as it has been a glorious achievement for all of us and not the time to talk about the future,” Hyderabad FC striker Bartholomew Ogbeche said. “Hyderabad was one of the very first teams which approached me when I was available in the market, I never had any doubts regarding the club as I was also a very big fan of the team last season when I watched the way they played, it was really difficult to see that they missed out the top four, but I was happy in a way because we wanted to avoid them as well in the playoffs.”
“When I had the opportunity to come here, I grabbed it and I appreciate coming here. We have a lot of leaders in the team on the field, we have the front line, the middle line, and the back, so it makes everything very easy to raise the confidence of the youngsters around us. Hyderabad’s style of play was similar to my style of play so it was easy to adapt and we were able to show our strength on the field,” he added.
