“I’m glad I have started the league with goals; I hope more of it will come as I have an eye on the big gong.Yes, I mean the highest goals scorer award. My desire is to score 30 times this season. I am sure it’s going to be a tough task, but I’m poised and determined to do it”, said the former Delta Force FC striker.
The Benue-born former Delta Force power player and bullish forward began his playing career in 2009 when he featured for Lobi Stars feeder team before going for trials in Norway at Lillestrom FC. He returned back to feature for Sunshine Stars and then got a deal in Finland and later travelled to Cyprus before, returning back to the country to feature for Delta Force, a 3rd tier league side.
