Former NPFL star Aggreh eyes Malaysia league success

Former Sunshine Stars and Kano Pillars winger, Prince Aggreh, has described the Nigeria Premier Football League as the perfect springboard for his career abroad as he continues to seek glory with Polis DiRaja Malaysia Football Club in Malaysia, PUNCH Sports Extra reports.
Aggreh joined PDRM FC in April from Al-Khaldiya FC in Bahrain.
After playing in the Middle East for about five years, the 27-year-old said the move was borne out of the desire to explore another clime.
“My move to Malaysia came out of the urge to test this side of the world as well. I’ve been to Bahrain and Saudi Arabia and I’ve wanted to play in Asia too. So, when the offer came, I didn’t object. I wanted to go there,” Aggreh told PUNCH Sports Extra.
“Football in Asia and Arab is good and everything is nice. You just have to prove yourself by showing what you have.”
Aggreh featured prominently for Sunshine Stars, Kano Pillars and later FC Ifeanyi Ubah in the NPFL and his flashy display earned him a call-up to the Super Eagles B between 2015 and 2016, earning four caps in the process. Before he joined Sunshine Stars in 2013, he had also played for Bendel Insurance and Heartland.
“Since I left the NPFL, it’s been totally a different ball game. The Nigerian league is a perfect step if you to go outside. Before you might think you will meet a different world but it’s the same football and the same mentality. I had a good start from the Nigerian league and I used that opportunity to get other opportunities.”
Now in the Malaysian Super League, Aggreh believes he could win some silverware with the Kuala Lumpur side.
“Here in Malaysia, we started the season like a month ago, we have played three games and I’ve been trying to support my team and win one or two trophies as well. I also want to score as many goals as possible and assist my teammates so in the end everyone will be happy.”
