Tamara, who featured for Bendel Insurance 17 times this season before signing for Al – Naft Sports Club of Iraq said that he had the desire to play in Europe, but when nothing concrete came from Europe, he had to accept the offer from Iraq.

“I consider my life after active football very very important because I still want to venture into football. I want to go back to the university to study Sport Management so I think coming out of the NPFL to play in other leagues would be a step for me,” Tamara told www.totorinews.com.  exclusively.

“I need time to be exposed more in football and als intellectually. So, it’s a plus for me leaving the Nigeria Professional League to the Iraqi League.

“I had strong desire to play in the Europe, but sometimes you know football can be very uncertain you know. You always want to beat a team and it doesn’t come like that and you just need to keep pushing. 

“So, I got the opportunity to play in Iraqi league. I have friends who have played in the league and I know what it is to play in Iraq,probably the name Iraqi league might look somehow but the league is matured and is highly developed. 

“My coming here is not because I just want to leave the NPFL; as a player you know there is  life after football. I consider my life after football  very very important .

“I want to venture into a lot of things and as a player you need to be financially sound to live that life after football. 

“I just want to say it is a step for me to my dreams outside football. So, I just took the opportunity to just  come see how it’s done in this place , from there I will take it on to the next level and I believe it’s going to be fine for me,” he said.
