Mikel Agu in action for Portuguese club Vitoria Setubal

Mikel Agu has said he hopes to play for a bigger club next season after ensuring safety for Portuguese club Vitoria Setubal.

Agu is on loan to Vitoria Setubal from FC Porto.

“I now have so many offers, but it is not me to decide, it is the work of my agent. I believe next season I will play for a bigger club than Victoria Setubal or I will return to my parent club FC Porto, where I still have a contract,” he said

This weekend his club are away at Maritimo.

“It’s a difficult ground to pick points, but with commitment and hard work as a team we can beat them in front of their own fans,”Agu predicted.

He has won four Man of the Match Awards this season, but was overlooked by the Super Eagles for two friendlies against Senegal and Burkina Faso later this month in London.

He said he will wait for his time to shine in the Eagles.

“I believe it is not my time to play for the Super Eagles. If the time came, nobody can stop me except God,” reasoned the defensive midfielder, who has trained with both the Nigeria U20s and the Olympic team.

“The most important thing is that I am playing regularly for my club and I have done well against top teams like Benfica and Sporting Lisbon. This can only be huge for my career.”
