thumbnail Hello,

The 19-year-old in his second full season in Europe is coming to terms with not playing every minute of every game

Standard Liege's Imoh Ezekiel has played almost all matches in the new season but mostly not all 90 minutes as new manager, Guy Luzon, has made an excellent start to life in Belgium.

Ezekiel was an unused substitute when Standard beat Minsk 3-1 on Thursday to qualify for the group stage of the Europa League but he could be in line to start against Kortrijk on Sunday.

"For me, it is a good thing because we have a lot of games and you have to move on,” Ezekiel told Dhnet.

“Accumulation meetings can cause fatigue and this system reduces this phenomenon."

Ezekiel has built his game on running the channels very hard and sitting on the shoulder of the last defender.

"It is true that I run a lot during a game. And it is not easy to follow up this kind of service in another game."

Ezekiel also believes that he has improved on his last season performances.

"I've improved since last season. Every day I learn something new.  Since I arrived, I have had four different coaches (Riga, Jans Rednic and Luzon).

“I have drawn on the knowledge of each of them to become a better footballer,” he added.
