SCORENigeria catches up in the Super Eagles training camp with Chelsea defender Ola Aina who could soon make a permanent switch to Serie A club Torino.
SCORENIGERIA: How are you doing Ola Aina?
OLA AINA: I am fine, thank you
SCORENIGERIA: It seems that leaving Chelsea on loan to Torino has paid off after your great season in Italy this past season.
Yes, it was good. It was a bold move for me, I was happy to make the move and it paid off for me.
SCORENIGERIA: Will you now be happy to stay back at Torino on a permanent basis?
I can’t talk much about it right now, but I enjoyed myself, the time I had there was good, let’s wait and see what will happen in the next few weeks.
SCORENIGERIA: You have played at both left and right back positions, but which of these positions are you most comfortable with?
Yes, I started as a right full back, but recently I really enjoyed playing at the left full back. I think I am comfortable playing in the left fullback, but either role is okay for me.
SCORENIGERIA: Would you say playing for the Super Eagles of Nigeria was a dream come true for you?
Yes, when I was younger obviously I played for England, but I always had the thought to play for Nigeria senior team or the England senior team, it’s been in my head and it’s really good to play for Nigeria’s senior team now. I have really enjoyed the people that are here, the coaches, the players and the people around. It’s a really nice place to play football.
SCORENIGERIA: Will Ola Aina make the cut to the AFCON?
Yes, we pray so, there is still a lot of hard work to do because the coaches still have to release some players, it is still a hard job to do but hopefully I get to make it.
SCORENIGERIA: Thank you for your time Ola.
Thank you too.
