It is still early days for Nigeria international, Brown Ideye, in the Spanish La Liga but he is already eager to start scoring for his new club, Malaga.

Ideye made his debut for Malaga last Monday but he fired blanks, that nonetheless, the Nigerian striker says he’s happy to return to active football after a torrid time in China with Tianjin Teda.

 At Teda, Ideye was forced to play with the reserve team after a dispute between his representatives and the club.

The 29-year-old, who spoke to AOIFootball.com from his new base in Spain, said it felt so good being on the field of play again and wants to start banging in the goals soonest.

The former Bayelsa United striker also posited that he still holds high hope of playing for Nigeria at the World Cup in Russia despite not featuring in most of the qualifying matches.
