Ahead of his move to Spain, Nigeria Professional Football League top scorer, Mfon Udoh of Enyimba of Aba, has expressed his happiness at being the first player to score 23 goals in a season in Nigerian football.
The 22-year-old striker, who got a brace in Enyimba’s 3-1 home win against champions Kano Pillars at the Enyimba Stadium on Sunday, broke the 20-goal mark record of Jude Aneke.
“Writing my name in the history books of the Nigeria Premier League makes me so glad, but it is so painful that we lost the championship to Kano Pillars,” Udoh told supersport.com.
“It would have been better for me to win the golden boot award coupled with the NPFL trophy, but I believe Enyimba would try hard next season. I know there would be serious competition next season among the strikers as I expect them to do better than I did, and I wish them good luck.”
The striker is already looking to further his career abroad and he’s eyeing a move to La Liga so as to test his goal scoring prowess with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
“A lot of foreign clubs are interested in getting my signature, but I would like to go to Spain where a club is waiting for me over there,” he said.
