Nura: “Roma is the right place for me to grow.”

Roma’s 19 year old Nigerian right back Abdullahi Nura spoke to today. These are his words:

“I honestly believe I can be the solution to the Super Eagles (Nigerian national team) right back issues but I need to get games at Roma, that is my aim for now and not the national team.”

”Roma is the right place for me to learn and grow in my position as a right back or winger. I have never been this fit in a while so this could be my breakthrough season at Roma, the season is just getting started so the hard work starts now.”
