Nigeria Premier League champions Enyimba have named goalkeeper Ojo Olorunleke their new captain.

The two-time African champions made the announcement on their official website.

Noble, who spent three years at Enyimba has teamed up with Tanzania Premier League club, Tabora United.

Olorunleke joined Enyimba in September 2021 after severing ties with their local rivals Abia Warriors.

The shot stopper quickly established himself as the club’s number choice despite strong competition from Noble and Djeri Bassa.

Enyimba also confirmed the appointment of centre-back Somiari Alalibo as vice-captain.

The Peoples’ Elephant will begin their 2023/24 campaign with a CAF Champions League preliminary fixture against Al Ahli Benghazi on August 18.

    A good goalkeeper is as good as the trainer. if you remember Vincent Eyenma was good but was highly improved on his move to macabi Hafia, it is even more intresting to note that isreal is not a powerhouse in football. but eyema from there became one of the safest hands in Africa. The NPFL cannot improve if the basics are not done. one of it is train the coaches and administrators. then the raw talents in the country will just be rolling out just like the Dutch Eredivisie does
