Odou, from “Tottenham Hotspur”, showed that he had no problem with his physical condition and was confident in his future performance.

Chungcheongbuk-do Cheongju recorded its first loss of the season with a crushing 1-4 defeat in the fourth round of the “Hana Bank K League 2 2024” against Chungnam Asan at 2 p.m. on the 30th at Yi Sun-shin Stadium.

Odu, a former Tottenham youth player, played his second match in Cheongju, North Chungcheong Province. K-League registration name Odu and full name Kellade Nathan Oduwa were born in 1996 and had English nationality before opting for Nigerian nationality. Odu, who was tall at 191 centimeters, was a promising player for Tottenham. He rented several teams for the club. Odu, who had been on loan from Luton Town and Rangers, left Tottenham after being completely transferred to NK Olympia Lublanya in 2017.

Since then, he has played for several teams. Before joining Cheongju in North Chungcheong Province, he was at Turan Tobuz in the Azerbaijani league. He has not had a team since leaving Turan in June 2023. Then, he joined Cheongju in North Chungcheong ahead of this season. Odu has reportedly not played in official matches for more than 10 months. While focusing on improving his physical condition, Odu made his debut at the match against the Dragons in South Jeolla Province.

Odu, who was on the list at the match against Asan in South Chungcheong Province, played as a substitute at the start of the second half. With no player present due to Choi’s departure, Odu struggled at the forefront of the team. He had good pressure and activity, but lacked destructive power and lacked teamwork with teammates. Asan won a landslide 4-1 victory with multiple goals scored by Kang Min-gyu and Hwang Ki-wook. On the contrary, Cheongju in North Chungcheong Province suffered a crushing defeat for the first time in this season.

“It was a difficult game. When I was sent off, it became even more difficult. I think the atmosphere changed a lot due to the sending off, but not all the players gave up and played as best as they could,” Odu said.

In a pre-press conference, coach Choi Yoon-gyeom said, “Odu has not played in practice matches, including official matches, for 10 months. Recently, he had a knee injury.” Regarding this, Odu said, “I didn’t have an injury, but I couldn’t find a new team in June after the European season ended. I had offers, but I was not satisfied, so I had to wait and came to Cheongju, North Chungcheong Province.”

Odu also said, “I’ve known Korea for a long time. I had a great time during the winter training. After the first game, I had a knee problem, so I was outside, but I came back. It will take time to improve my physical condition, but I don’t think there is a problem. My physical condition has improved a lot, and I’m adapting well without any problems.” 고수익알바
