Nigeria-born Obi On United Trial

Nigeria-born Obi On United Trial

Manchester United have taken Watford’s highly-rated 16 year old Ogo Obi on trial.
Obi, an avid Arsenal fan has been monitored by Liverpool and Arsenal since he rattled in an impressive 10 goals in five games at last year’s Milk Cup where he won the Golden Boot.

He led the Hertfordshire-based team to third-place ­finish after a ­resounding 6-2 win over Liverpool in which he bagged a brilliant brace.

This feat did not go unnoticed by United who have invited the striker to train at their Carrington complex this week after securing permission from the Hertfordshire club.

Watford are desperate to keep the teen sensation and have offered him a place on their scholarship scheme and a one-year professional contract.

However, it now appears no decision will be made on Obi’s future until his stay in Manchester finishes.

    wonderful! wonderful!! wonderful!!!, Nigeria has a lot young telent footballers over the world. We just need to maintain that system. The boy called Ogo Obi can be invited for under 17 or 20 of Nigeria to play for his fatherland .

      IN as much I would won’t him to play for Nigeria, I would rather ask him to play for England or else they would destroy his career and frustrate him from getting a good club in the future and also distort his program. For his own good I would strongly advice him to play for England in the Under aged tournaments. We don’t really need him now. We need him later when he must have matured properly.
