The father of FC Lorient striker Terem Moffi has opened up on the big dreams of his son which include playing for the Super Eagles at the World Cup and being crowned CAF African Footballer of the Year like some of his illustrious compatriots.
Leo Moffi revealed: “He dreams of playing for Nigeria at the World Cup.
“He also believes that if his career follows the right path, playing for the right clubs and with the right coaches, he can become the African Footballer of the Year and win the Golden Ball.”
Moffi, a former goalkeeper of Enugu Rangers and several other top Nigerian clubs, further said the rise of the young striker, who will be 22 later this month, did not come as a surprise.
“Terem’s decision to become professional has nothing to do with my career,” said Moffi senior, a lawyer.
“He was a child who very early on showed exceptional skills for football. I am not surprised by what he has shown so far, I saw it in him when he was only three or four years old.
“He grew up in an environment where virtually all little boys played soccer. His two older brothers were also good footballers. One of them might even have been a better striker than Terem if he hadn’t decided to go to school, and if he wasn’t a doctor today.”
