Under-fire Super Eagles goalkeeper Francis Uzoho has apologised to Nigerians for his lacklustre performances in the recent friendlies against Saudi Arabia and Mozambique.
The 24-year-old Omonia Nicosia goalie faced harsh criticism and responded to his critics by posting a message on his Snapchat story, saying “Do it if it’s easy.”
Nigerian football supporters were critical of Uzoho’s mistakes in recent matches, comparing him to Andre Onana. Some fans believe that Uzoho may hinder the Super Eagles’ chances in the AFCON.
It will be recalled that he came out to apologise to after his howler helped Ghana secure qualification to the World Cup, Qatar 2022, ahead of the Super Eagles.
The Eagles were held to a 1-1 stalemate by the Black Stars in the second leg of the play-off at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium in Abuja which saw the Ghanaians sailing through to the Mundial.
Uzoho has now taken to his official social media platforms to apologize to Nigerian football fans.
“It has come to my attention that my recent Snapchat has not been my best behaviour towards you as my loyal fans.
“I apologise for this as it was not my intention to conduct myself in such manner toward the fans who have supported and motivated me through my career.
“My actions were more as a result of frustration stemming from the actions of someone in my circle (will keep the identity private for now).
“Accepting criticsm is part of my job and one that I often welcome from the people who continue to support me. I accept your criticisms with the utmost respect and understanding that you all want me to do better.
“I want you all to know that I continue to grow daily as a person and in my career and you all are a vital part of my growth and success. My actions are aimed to reflect this and will continue to do so. In Christ alone,” he wrote.
