Felix Oduokhai enjoying a good start at VFL Wolfsburg


German-born Nigerian footballer, Felix Uduokhai who joined VFL Wolfsburg during the last summer transfer window has gotten off to a flying start at his new club. He has featured for the club in every league game of the season so far, putting a very good display week in week out. He now enjoys the privilege of being compared with Bayern Munich Jerome Boateng. Some even tout him as the replacement for Jerome Boateng.

He has incredible talent and already has great confidence on the ball and he is just 20.

According to the Wolfsburger Algemeiner Zeitung, Uduokhai is Wolfsburg’s best signing for the season. He shows almost week after week why experts like to compare him with Bayern’s top defender, Jerome Boateng.

All these could be attributed to his commitment and dedication to the game as omasports found out that he Uduokhai does not have an Instagram account. This could be term strange in a time when not having an Instagram account as a footballer is perceived as awkward. He is also said to be a staunch believer in God. God is everything one needs in life, nothing is more important than God Felix once said.

Uduokhai does not seem to allow the comparison with the German national player gets into his head. “I’ve seen him before, but I do not really know him well. I do not wear the number 17 because he is wearing it, “Uduokhai explains, and praises the Munich man:” Boateng is one of the best domestic defenders. I am honored to be compared with a great player. “But,” I am Uduokhai and want to stay, too – I want to take my own path. ”












Uduokhai started out as a striker like Arsenal legend Thierry Henry. “Now I’m looking up to some of the top defenders.” This includes Boateng, but also for him, Barcelona’s former top defender Carles Puyol, who spent his entire career at FC Barcelona. A mentality monster.

“Because of his mentality, I always found him incredibly well,” says the VfL player, who is more of the quiet on the pitch. Puyol, on the other hand, could also freak out. What Uduokhai loved about the Spaniard is his attitude, the never say die spirit. He also wants to embody all of the qualities of Puyol in his games.
