Uzochukwu sets new target with Odense


OB Odense defensive midfielder Izunna Uzochukwu has expressed his readiness for the 2016/17 Danish season and has set new target with the club.

The 26-year-old was involved for 90 minutes when Odense played out a 1-1 draw against German side FC Magdeburg in a pre-season friendly. Christian Bech scored for the Bundesliga outfit while Thomas Mikelsen replied for the Danish team.

“I’ve settled very well at OB Odense,” he said. “Just looking forward to the new season now.”

On his target for his Danish side this season, he said: “I hope we can finish in the top six this time and hopefully get a Europa league qualification spot.”

Izunna will again be involved in action for OB Odense on Saturday when they take on Eintracht Braunschweig before departing Spain for Denmark where the league is billed to resume on July 15.
