Young midfielder Raphael Onyedika has said he hopes to achieve much more with FC Midtjylland after he took Danish football by storm this season.
FC Ebedei graduate Onyedika has so far featured in 16 of the 17 matches by FC Midtjylland this season after he spent last season on loan at Danish first division club Fredericia.
“I enjoy every single match and I am very grateful for the first part of the season and as I say, I just want to help the team to success,” said the highly-rated defensive midfielder, who is carrying on a proud tradition that has seen Femi Ajilore, Sylvester Igboun, Paul Onuachu and Frank Onyeka come through the Midtjylland production line.
“Of course, I hope I can continue so that I can become an even better player.
“I do not want to say that I am surprised that it has gone so fast. I am of course super happy to have had the opportunity to play so much, but I also said this summer that I felt ready to seize the chance in the Super League after a good season in Fredericia.”
The strong, hard tackling midfielder said his loan spell helped shape his career.
“The year in Fredericia really gave me a lot, and it was an important lesson for me,” Onyedika said.
“It is something completely different to play senior football compared to U19, which I played the year before. I developed a lot in Fredericia, and for me it was a perfect springboard to join the main team (FC Midtjylland).”
