Nigerian youngster, Onoja Sunday Okpe hopes to make the most of his professional career as he edges closer to a move abroad in the summer, AOIFootball.com reports.
A product of N-28 Global Sports Management, the 18-year-old winger stated that his journey through the grassroots had been a difficult one but he believes he can now take the positives and go on to become a very good player in the future.
“My career hasn’t been easy but I thank the Almighty God, Mr. Smith Abiola Bayo my agent and Mr. Ikechukwu my guardian, and the management of N-28 global sports management, and also my family for their support all through my career and also to my grassroots coaches,” Okpe said.
The pacy winger, who models his style of play around Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo, further revealed that Super Eagles winger Samuel Chukwueze inspires him a lot and he will like to take his trade to greater heights in the future.
“I’d love to play like Cristiano Ronaldo but I’m a left-footer; the player that inspires my game currently is Chukwueze. I’m aiming to play in bigger clubs and hope to learn more in the club to prepare me for the task ahead,” he concluded.
