Boot 2019 winners Sunusi Ibrahim and Mfon Udoh reached seventh heaven after they
received their N2million Naira cheques and Eunisell Boot replicas each for finishing
joint top scorers of the NPFL.
Both strikers netted 10 goals each this past NPFL season and Eunisell values a goal in the Nigeria Professional Football League at Two Hundred Thousand Naira (N200,000).
The goal kings were hosted at a glittering ceremony, in Lagos,
where they were crowned, on Friday night at Raddison Blu Hotel, Ikeja-Lagos.
“It was a special night for me and one that I won’t forget in a hurry. I have never been to or witness such a reception before, more so, one done to honour a local league player in Nigeria’s domestic league,” said Sunusi.
“o be honest, I see this kind of event on television when top European players are rewarded.
“I was more than excited when I was presented my N2million cheque and Eunisell Boot.
“I want to dedicate the Eunisell Boot Award to my mother, family, coaches, teammates at Nasarawa United and the media,” he added.
Reacting, Mfon Udoh said: “Tonight is not a night for long speeches, I want to use this medium to say a big thank you to Eunisell for deeming it fit to reward goal scoring excellence in the domestic league.”
Group Managing Director of Eunisell Chika Ikenga stated that the Eunisell Boot is an important corporate social responsibility initiative by Eunisell.
“Like all Nigerians, we are passionate about football and whilst we salute our talented players who play for some of the world’s top clubs abroad, we believe that there is an opportunity to raise the standard of the game at home and not only keep out talents here, but in addition, attract international players to play in Nigeria,” he said.
