Yusuf Lawal has already begun to live up to the huge promise he has shown after he scored for the Lokeren U21s in a 3-2 win over their Sint-Truiden counterparts.
Former 36 Lion of Lagos star Lawal, who has already been nicknamed ‘Obagoal’ after Obafemi Martins, has signed a three-year contract with the Belgian top division club after successful trials.
He wept tears of joy when he signed his contract.
He is expected to soon be knocking on the door of the Lokeren first team.
His agent Bart De Bruyne has already tipped the striker or winger to go on to play in the glamorous Premier League in England.
