Längeres Interview mit Ike Shorunmu:Fans felt I used juju as Stores goalkeeper – Shorummu https://soccernet.ng/2023/01/i-had-to-collect-enyeamas-boots-ex-nigerian-goalie-reveals-two-memorable-encounters-with-argentina-great-batistuta.html
Geht vor allem um die nigerianische Nati, seine Stories dort und seine Anfänge in der Heimat. Nebenbei aber auch um den FCZ:
«It was definitely Gabriel Batistuta. I first came face to face with him when I was with FC Zurich in 1997 when we went for pre-season in Italy and we played against Fiorentina. It was like a tug-of-war between him and my defenders and even though he is an Argentine he played like an African.»
«The funniest goal I conceded was in a game in Zurich in 1997. We were leading 1-0 and playing away to Sion FC and with just two minutes to the end, there was a freakish shot from about 25 to 30 meters and I thought I was going to save it but surprisingly I fumbled it and it went in. What actually happened was that I saw my striker way ahead all alone and the plan was to quickly grab the ball and launch a counter-attack but I lost concentration and didn’t know how the ball went through my legs and into the net and the game ended 1-1 instead of 2-0. Switzerland is not a very big country and its about two and a half hours back to Zurich from Sion. In the bus back home, the other players complained from the beginning of the journey till we got to Zurich because my blunder cost us some bonuses. I got home around 2am but couldn’t sleep till in the morning. Back at training the next day, it was like a nightmare because there was a funny guy in the team who continued making jest of me.»
Ich kann das Spiel bei dbFCZ gerade nicht finden, eventuell verwechseltt er da auch etwas.
