Super Eagles utility defender Semi Ajayi is undoubtedly starring down the barrel of relegation back to the English Championship with his Wes Brom side.
Ten losses and five draws with a solitary win out of 16 league games thus far aren’t the hallmarks of viability in the English Premer League.
Semi Ajayi has played 90 minutes in all bar one of his team’s games. The euphoria of seeing him play in the Premier League after promotion last season is slowly giving way to despair of watching him potentially drop right back to the Championship.
In efforts to avert what seems inevitable even at this stage of the season, Jay Jay Okocha’s former coach was brought in to replace sacked coach Billic to help them dribble out of relegation waters.
But, on the account of the 5:0 mauling from the jaws of fellow promoted side Leeds this week, even Big Sam might have bitten off more than he can chew by accepting this sinking rescue mission.
However, the former England manager has been in this relegation battle situation many times in the past, and he is certainly capable of masterminding a rescue for the West Midland side.
His success will largely depend on the signings he makes next month.
Super Eagles fans will be praying for a prolonged stay in the English Premer League for Semi Ajayi.
