Super Eagles goalkeeper Ezenwa joins Heartland

Super Eagles goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa has joined Nigeria Professional Football League club Heartland FC on a two-year contract.

Ezenwa, a free agent was the latest buy unveiled by Heartland after Fidelis Ilechukwu was announced as coach of the side.

His one-year contract with another NPFL side, Katsina United expired at the end of last season and it was not renewed.

“I am here to give a good account of myself in the field of play. I am hoping for the best while in Owerri, and I am full of positive anticipation that we would grab a ticket and head to the continent again,” Ezenwa told Heartland’s official website after penning the contract.

Heartland’s General Manager, Chief Ifeanyi Chukwudi also stated that the club has made a statement of intent with the acquisition of the experienced goalkeeper.

“This is a statement of intent, that Heartland is in for serious business and not business as usual,” Chukwudi declared.

It will be the Super Eagles goalkeeper’s second stint with the five-time NPFL champions after previously featuring for them eight years ago.
