Super Eagles’ defender, Brian Idowu, has joined Russian side, Lokomotiv Moscow. Lokomotiv Moscow won the Russian Premier League last season, and will play in the UEFA Champions League next season. The 26-year-old defender played for Amkar Perm last season, before the club went into administration and declared bankruptcy. “I am very glad to switch to Lokomotiv. I’m really looking forward to joining the team at the training camp,” Idowu told the club’s website. “As a child I watched the matches of “Loco” in the Champions League – against Real and Inter. The whole country was proud of the team! “I’m happy to be acquainted with Alexander Kolomeitsev, with whom I played together in Perm. The rest of the guys know about the matches of Amkar against Lokomotiv.” Idowu played for Nigeria at the 2018 FIFA World Cup In Russia, where the team failed to make it beyond the group stages.
