Maduka Okoye is one of many on-loan Watford players to bid farewell to their temporary clubs, as the domestic campaigns come to a close in England and overseas, Megasportsarena.com reports.
Okoye’s Sparta Rotterdam have won all three of their final Eredivisie games to remarkably beat the drop in the Dutch top-tier.
Sparta had won five games all season and sat bottom of the table going into a final flurry of fixtures, but collected 10 points from 12 to rise to 14th in the league, one point ahead of Heracles, who were beaten 3-1 by Okoye’s side on the final day and now face a relegation play-off.
Megasportsarena.com reports that Okoye’s clean sheet in a 2-0 win over PEC Zwolle last week played a major role in the club’s survival, with confirmation of their spot in the first division taking place on Sunday afternoon in dramatic fashion.
The Nigeria international, Watford-bound after agreeing a deal to join the club from next season, said an emotional goodbye to the club that signed him in 2020, and the fans appreciated his time.
