Promotion-winning Modena midfielder Rabiu Oyindamola has told SCORENigeria he wants to get a chance to feature of the Nigeria U23s as they make their way to the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.
Oyindamola, nicknamed “Mario” and who has just powered his team to Serie C, said he believes he’s got all it takes to make the difference in the midfield for the Olympics team.
Combining the innate qualities of N’golo Kante and Nemanja Matic is one top attribute of the midfield player this 19-year-old Ikorodu native hopes to bring to the team handled by Imama Amapakabo.
Such is the powerful gift from God that promotion-winning unknown midfielder possesses that the Olympic team handlers should not turn a blind eye to.
The 19-year-old star accounted for every single second on the pitch to ultimately catapult Modena to reckoning again.
Oyindamola was mercurial in the middle of the park to reportedly spark off interests from two Seria A sides – Bologna and Parma – as well as a number of Serie B sides.
His agent Akintunde Kayode and his partners are working out at the best destination to ship the exciting midfielder to when the right fees are met.
Built like Chelsea’s Kante, Oyindamola possesses a heart of a lion and the deft touches, vision, power and grit of Matic to hold down his place at Modena and ultimately propel his side back to Seria C.
Oyindamola assisted to a huge percentage of Modena’s goals as well as helping himself to some goals as Modena moved a division up.
