Nigerian midfielder Mikel Agu is proud of himself as he claimed to be naturally gifted.
Agu returned to action after a long injury layoff and gave an impressive display in Vitoria Guimaraes’ 5-1 win over CD Aves last weekend, making the Premiere Liga team of the week.
The 26-year-old is excited to be back.
“The feeling of being back is always wonderful for every footballer. For less than one year now injuries have kept me away from playing consistently. But I thank God I’m back again playing and I pray He keeps me stable this season.
“I believe one thing in football- there are people who work very hard to get to the top while some are naturally gifted. I believe I’m among those who are naturally gifted, that’s why even when I stayed out from playing for some time, my return was still phenomenal,” Agu stated.
The former Bursaspor of Turkey midfielder joined Vitoria Guimaraes on a four-year contract from Portuguese giants FC Porto and has already established himself at the club, helping them reach the group stages of the Europa League.
