Zaidu gave an extended interview to Dragões magazine, where he discussed his career. Speaking of his stay in Santa Clara, the left-back, currently at FC Porto, remembers in particular the goal he scored against Benfica at Stade de Luz (4-3 win, in round 28 of 2019/20).
“I was doing my job, but I scored in Luz… I was really happy. We played well in front of them at home [derrota por 1-2]We scored first, then they managed to equalize, and in the 60th minute, and in such minutes, the referee missed the referee, because there was a mistake that was not mentioned. Against a team like Benfica, it is very difficult to draw or win, but we always thought, ”he began by explaining.
The Nigerian international player also called up a conversation with his teammate Nene.
“In Luz, we entered easily, because before the match, Nene told me:“ Zido, tomorrow you will score a goal. ”I answered him: Do you really think that? And he just said, ‘Awesome, Zaid! I scored a goal and won at Luz. I just said,’ Nene, God is in control of everything. We concluded our faith, and that is why we succeeded ».
