NPFL Hotshot Lokosa’s Move To Ludogorets In Doubt Over Trials

By David Meshioye:
The proposed transfer deal that for Kano Pillars striker and Nigeria Professional Football League top scorer Junior Lokosa to Bulgarian top flight club FC Ludogorets has reportedly fallen through. reported on Saturday that there was a heated disagreement between Ludogoret coach Dimitar Dimitrov and Lokosa’s agent Ismail Adedoyin which looked to have scuppered the deal, after both parties failed to reach an amicable agreement on the player’s status.

Coach Dimitar reportedly insisted on seeing the new invited Super Eagles striker in action during training or a two-sided game but Lokosa’s agent was against the arrangement and maintained his client be allowed to sign a contract directly.

The Ludogorets coach pointed out that having not seen the 18-goal hotshot in action, Lokosa had to undergo trials before a deal could be reached.

He stressed further that players from the club’s academy are better positioned to move up into the senior team rather than an unknown player.

    Have you seen the mess they are making out of this guy? It makes no sense how we let our country down

    Lokosa would have introduced himself to the world against athletico Madrid but he missed his opportunity

  • Lokoso’s agent must be a fraud. How do you expect them to sign a player they have not seen play. I watched some clips of the player, believe me, I’m not impressed.

    In these modern days of video, if Lokosa has scored 18 goals this season, is it not possible to send the Bulgarians clips of his performances in the NPFL, as proof of his quality for which he is in the Super Eagles Provisional list of 30 players?? There must be more to this story that we do not know. The disagreement has other reasons, and certainly not one of “not seeing who they are signing” Nigerians have been playing football in Bulgaria for the last 20 years, and Bulgarian coaches have worked in Nigeria. One of them, Tomasevic was even our national coach in the 1960s.
