Overview

Purchase includes free access to book updates online and a free trial membership in the publisher's book club where you can select from more than a million books without charge. Not illustrated. Excerpt: Senior club appearances and goalscounted for the domestic league only.* Appearances (Goals) Uche Alozie Okechukwu (born September 27, 1967), known as Uche for short, is a former Nigerian footballer, who played as a central defender. "Uche" is a nickname for the Igbo name "Uchechukwu" (meaning "Go&dacute;s will").

At Fenerbahçe, he formed a defensive duo with former Brøndby teammate Jes Høgh, helping the club to its first national championship in seven years, in 199596.
