Super Eagles defender, Leon Balogun has come out to confirm that his contract extension at Rangers will soon be triggered. He recently revealed that he is currently close to making the number of appearances he needs to activate an extension clause for next season.
According to him, he is playing for an amazing club, and the present season has been really good for him, so he definitely wants to keep going.
He added that he hopes Rangers can keep going in the right direction this season for the league is wrapped up as soon as possible.
His words, “I am playing for an amazing club,”
“This season so far has been going really well for me. So, yeah, I just hope it keeps going, I hope I can keep the momentum going and we can then at one point announce that we pulled the trigger.”
“Obviously it is under some confidentiality. But it is getting closer and closer. Let’s just say I am quite confident that my time with Rangers is not over after this season.”
“My breakthrough in the Bundesliga with Dusseldorf was as a right full-back. I played a full season there. I also played right full-back for Darmstadt. Mainz brought me in as a right full-back, but I ended up playing centre-half there most of the time.”
“So I do have experience there and that helped me immensely to adapt quickly to that kind of quick, frenetic game.”
“When I played there before, it was quite an attacking position as well. You had the likes of Philipp Lahm and Dani Alves there already. The way they interpreted that role was quite offensive. Marcelo to this day.”
“The difference is more in how I used to play. I used to play for teams that would sit back a little bit more. I would also go and attack and run up and down the field but not as frequently as we do it here. Our full-backs are an essential part of our game. It’s definitely a lot more offensive than I was used to.”
