It has been a difficult year for Ogu both on and off the pitch. He has been without a club since he left Al-Adalah FC last January.
Although he has always expressed his desire to continue playing, Ogu is yet to find a club one year later. The 32-year-old’s Super Eagles career is also as good as over with his last appearance coming at the 2019 Africa cup of nations.
