Arokoyo Keen To Emulate Adi At Portland Timbers

By Adeboye Amosu:

Former Nigerian youth international Gbenga Arokoyo is looking forward to making a huge impact at Major League Soccer side Portland Timbers, reports

The 23- year-old defender joined Timbers on Tuesday  from Turkish side Gaziantepspor.

He joined fellow Nigerian Fanendo Adi who played a key role in the Timbers' MLS Cup success last season.

The former Kwara United player told that he is keen on becoming an important player for his new side like his countryman, Adi.

"I'm delighted to have joined a big club in the MLS like the Portland Timbers," the former Flying Eagles player told

"It's a big and positive step in my career and I hope to make  the best use of it.

"Having another Nigerian (Adi) around here will help me settle down well. He has done remarkably well for the club and I hope to emulate him by becoming a big player for the club."
