On loan FC Porto defender Chidozie Awaziem made the French Ligue 1 team of the week after impressing for Nantes over the weekend in their 1-0 win over Caen on his return from suspension.
The defender who has two senior caps for Nigeria has a faultless performance for the entire duration of Nantes clash against Caen, and was duly rewarded a spot in the Ligue 1 Team of The Week.
Awaziem was red carded in Nantes 1-0 win over Troyes on the 19th of April and was subsequently suspended for their next three league games , and he returned to good effect in their 1-0 win in Matchday 6 of the French Ligue 1.
His return saw him reinstated into the starting line up by coach Claudio Ranieri and the 20 year old didn’t disappoint as he put up a sterling display which he capped with an assist for his team’s lone goal of the game.
Porto wants the defender to extend his stay at the club ahead of his return to the club next summer , as they expel him to have made sufficient progress good for their first team at Nantes.
