Nigerian midfielder Ramon Azeez, who plays for Spanish side Granada, has been hailed by fellow teammate Domingos Duarte as a result of his superb performance at the beginning of the season in Spain.

After the super Eagles midfielder’s outstanding performance  in the Spanish top flight, he has received encomiums from his teammates.

Super Eagles coach Gernort Rohr has recalled Ramon after a five-year exile, for last month’s international friendly against Brazil, and also made his list for Wednesday’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifying victory over Benin.

This is after the 26-year-old’s eye-catching performances for the Nasrids, who he helped gain promotion to the top flight last season. Speaking to Goal, Ramon’s teammates Duarte said:

“Ramon is playing very well for us, he is a fantastic guy with best qualities,”  “He has good qualities, and I would describe him as a box-to-box midfielder.

“He gives everything for the team, offensively and defensively,” he added. He’s the guy that you want to have in all the games.”

Azeez has featured 11 times for Granada this term, scoring twice. His form has helped the Andalusians up to eighth in the table, only five points off top spot.
