Maduka Okoye thrilled with Udinese debut


Nigeria goalkeeper Maduka Okoye hopes to build on his impressive debut for Serie A club Udinese.

Okoye joined the Zebras from Sky Bet Championship club Watford in the summer.

The 23-year-old made his maiden appearance for the club in the Coppa Italia 2-1 defeat to Cagliari on Wednesday.

The shot-stopper reflected on the game and hopes to get more opportunities at the club.

“It was unfortunate, but I think that in recent times we have been developing a good mentality, offensive and patient,” he told the club’s official website.

“I thank the club for giving me this opportunity to play, I will learn from this experience. It’s been a long time since I saw the pitch, I also thank the fans. I’m sure I will enjoy playing for this shirt.”
