Although Kingsley Madu’s once blossoming career has plummeted, his father, Chief Goddy Madu, is fervently hopeful that his son’s career shall witness a turn-around in his new club KSV Roeselare in Belgium.

Through their official website, the Belgian first division B side KSV Roeselare had announced that they have reached a loan deal agreement with Zulte- Waregem and the Nigerian international until the end of the season.

Before he joined SV Zulte-Warem in the summer of 2016, Madu had enjoyed playing time at his former Slovakia club, AC Trencin where he played a total of 74 matches for the Slovaks, including six matches on the European stage.

In SV Zulte-Warem he made 22 appearances, scoring one goal and contributing four assists as he helped them to win the 2017 Belgian Cup title.

The 2016 Rio Olympics Silver medalist’s career then suffered a major setback when he sustained a nagging injury that cost him his place in the Super Eagles.

However, his father in a chat with Daily Trust expressed hope that the latest move by his son is the beginning of the much needed resurgence.

He said with regular football in KSV Roeselare, the former El-Kanemi Warriors player will surely claw his way back to the top again.

“As a father, I was really happy with the way my son’s career started. Unfortunately, it took a different dimension but we thank God for everything.

“He has just joined a new club and my prayer is for him to play more regularly. His is a young boy so I believe he will still come back to the Super Eagles,” he said.
