Super Eagles defender Chidozie Awaziem has returned to his parent club Boavista to prepare for the upcoming season, following his impressive performances and heroics in Croatia. The 26-year-old spent last season on loan at Hajduk Split in the Croatian top flight, where he played a significant role in their campaign.
Awaziem showcased his defensive prowess and offensive contributions during his time at Hajduk Split. In 28 league games, he netted an impressive five goals and even provided an assist. His goal-scoring exploits helped him set a new record for the highest-scoring defender in Hajduk Split’s history within the Croatian top flight.
Furthermore, Awaziem played a pivotal role in helping Hajduk Split clinch the Croatian Cup, securing their eighth title in the competition’s history. His performances undoubtedly left an indelible mark on the team’s success.
However, despite his commendable efforts, Hajduk Split decided against offering Awaziem a permanent deal. As a result, the Nigerian defender has returned to Boavista, where he is expected to participate in the club’s preseason program.
Boavista is eagerly awaiting the arrival of another Super Eagles newcomer, Bruno Onyemaechi, as they prepare for the upcoming season. Awaziem initially joined Boavista on loan from Porto in 2020 before making his move permanent in 2021 for a fee of €5 million.
As Awaziem begins his preseason preparations with Boavista, he will aim to continue his impressive performances and contribute to his club’s success in the upcoming campaign. The defender has proven his capabilities both defensively and offensively, and Boavista will rely on his skills and experience to strengthen their squad.
With his return to Boavista, Awaziem will have the opportunity to further develop his game and continue to make a name for himself in the football world. Fans and supporters will be eagerly anticipating his performances in the upcoming season, hoping that he can replicate his success in Croatia and help lead Boavista to glory.
