WERDER.DE: Have you ever thought about what it might have been like to score that goal against Augsburg in front of a full wohninvest WESERSTADION?
FELIX AGU: "Oof, that obviously would have made it a very different experience, running towards the stands after scoring, being in front of the fans and celebrating with them. At the moment, you look up and everything is empty. I scored that goal in front of the Ostkurve (east stand) as well. There’s an Ostkurve in Osnabrück as too – a standing section where most of the atmosphere comes from. So I know what it means. It would have been extraordinary to score that goal with supporters at the game. I hope I can experience that one day."
WERDER.DE: Your father was born in Nigeria. Why did he decide to move to Germany?
FELIX AGU: Simple: He wanted a better life, not just for himself, but for his future children that he would one day have. So that we - my sister and I - had better opportunities in life than he did in Nigeria."
WERDER.DE: How much did your father’s background influence your childhood?
FELIX AGU: "We were in Nigeria when I was four years old. My sister, who is two and a half years older than me, and I were baptised in the village where my father grew up. My father has six siblings, some of whom still live in Nigeria. As does my grandmother. So naturally we still have ties to the country. Nigeria is not doing so well unfortunately, but I like this part of my heritage, I think it’s nice to have roots somewhere other than Germany. I would really like to go to Nigeria again someday. I do remember the christening, but everything else I only know from photographs. Unfortunately I haven’t found the right opportunity yet, but it would be nice to go there with the whole family again."
