“I just want to thank my coaches in the U20 team, who gave me the opportunity to wear the green-white-green jersey to be seen,” he saluted.
“Coaches Paul Aigbogun, Abdul Maikaba, Abubakar Bala, not forgetting coach Shuaibu and coach Hassan. They are all great people and have contributed in one way or another to where we are now. They advised me and taught me on what is needed to be a professional player.”
The left-footed winger was also full of encomiums for his foster father who he attributed his breakthrough to after God.
“My list of people who I am grateful to, will not be complete without my foster father Makanjuola Nuruni, who is also my agent and mentor,” he credited
