Azubuike Egwuekwe, former Super Eagles defender, says he will still play professional football for 10 more years.
Egwuekwe, who is 29 and approaching 30, played most of his national team football under the late Stephen Keshi.
The former captain of Warri Wolves recently quit SuperSport FC of South Africa.
“I can still play for like eight to 10 years more by God’s grace,” Egwuekwe told TheCable.
“Now that I have left South Africa, I have to move on with my career because I still have a lot to give in my career.
“I met like five centre-backs in the club when I joined the team. But the second coach did not like me because I didn’t join the team through him.”
The defender said foreign players are not well treated in the South African league.
“They were terrible to foreign players. But I have to say it is for our leaders to promote our own league,” he said.
“There are some good people in the team but we parted ways because of my injury.
“I played 13 games and scored two goals before my injury but thank God I am now fit and ready to play again.
Egwuekwe, who is now a free agent, said, “after football by God’s grace I will go into business”.
