Rivers United fullback Ebube Duru has hailed the form of midfielder Morice Chukwu following his dominating presence during their 1-1 draw at Remo Stars on Sunday.
Duru says his Rivers United teammate deserves accolade for the way he’s fought for his starting berth at the club this season.
He told Lodgexpress.com: “He’s been really amazing and brilliant. I’ve always enjoyed playing with Morice and I’ve been enjoying my time on the pitch with him both in matches and in trainings since I came here. We play well together and cause other teams quite a lot of problems all thanks to his dominance in the midfield.
“Morice has been brilliant for us so far this season with his work-rate and the way he penetrates defenders with his runs and inch-perfect passes too. In many cases in the game of football, a lot of hard work can go without notice.
“He’s really good at set-pieces and scores from direct freekicks. It’s really great to see that now he’s getting all the credit and rewards he so deserves.”
