John Ogu sees Champions League as possibility

After a 2-0 first leg win against Ludogorets Razgrad, John Ogu wants to play in the Champions League group stages this season.

Though the team still has three more games to play to get there, Ogu sees it as a big possibility considering how close they got last year.

“Europe in the Champions League is something I am looking forward to,” Ogu told Naijafootball247.com.

“Last year we almost got there and it was just one goal we needed to get to the Champions League against Celtic that ensured we played in the Europa.

“We need to work hard and everyone is looking for this opportunity. Last year gave us belief and this year it is possible,” Ogu said.

Great to win League in Israel

The barrel chested midfielder described the feeling of being Israeli League champion as a great one.

“Winning the League in Israel is great. We fought hard in so many games in League Cup and then Super Cup.

“We knew it would be tough with teams like Maccabi Haifa, Beitar Jerusalem and the rest but it was a great season last year.

“I must give credit to everyone as this is the second League title of my career.”

In the Champions League 2nd qualifying round, Be’er Sheva beat Budapest Honved 5-3 on aggregate before their game against Ludogarets Razgrad.

The return leg between Hapoel Be’er Sheva and Ludogorets comes up on August 2 in Bulgaria.
