UEFA CL: Super Eagles star relishes Slovenia return

Super Eagles midfielder John Ogu is relishing his return to Slovenia after his Israeli outfit Hapoel Be'er Sheva was drawn against Maribor in the UEFA Champions League play-off round.

The Israeli Champions saw off competitions from Honved and Ludogorets in the second and third round qualifying stages to secure a play off spot, meaning they are now two successful games away from making it to the group stage of the 2017/18 Champions League campaign.

Ogu who began his professional career in Slovenia with Drava took to Twitter after the draws were released by UEFA, saying: "Slovenia is the next destination. I have Good memories about that great country . Country where I started as a professional !! I can't wait!"

Ogu and his troops will on August 16 play host to Maribor at the Yaakov Turner Toto Stadium before heading Slovenia a week later for the return leg.
