“With competitors such as Remko Pasveer from Vitesse and Sergio Padt from FC Groningen, the choice was not easy, but Okoye had a wonderful season at Sparta,”reads a statement on their website.

The only 21-year-old Nigerian was only passed 35 times in 28 games and kept 10 clean sheets impressive figures for a goalkeeper from Sparta.


“Earlier this week, he kept his team going at FC Utrecht (0-0) with a few nice saves, which turned out to be crucial for reaching the play-offs. Robert Maaskant called the 1 meter 97 long last week at RTV Rijnmond a ‘crazy athlete’, while Kees Kwakman put him at the top of his top three revelations in the Eredivisie on Sunday. “He is very interesting. He came over from Fortuna Düsseldorf for zero euros! Really a great keeper.”

    When Rohr declared this young man to be his no 1 goalkeeper for SE back then, many haters were busy lambasting GR for making such declaration when there is Uzoho, Osigwe, Yakubu etc. Now it’s clear what GR see in him to make that bold declaration.
    Carry on my dear Okoye, wok harder and aim higher my brother. God will continue to be on your side
