Simy Nwankwo Proud To Break Martins’ Serie A Record, Not Willing To Discuss Future Move

Simy Nwankwo is thrilled to overtake Obafemi Martins as the highest scoring Nigerian in Serie A, reports Completesports.com.

Nwankwo grabbed a brace as Crotone defeated Parma 4-3 at the Stadio Ennio Tardini on Saturday.

The 28-year-old now has 29 Serie A goals across three seasons in 77 appearances for Crotone, beating Martins’ record of 28 for most scored in the Italian top-flight by a Nigerian player.

” Reaching such goals in a very difficult championship like the Italian one is nice , but I can’t be 100% happy,”he told sport.sky.it.

Despite his impressive scoring form for Crotone this season, the Calabrians are destined for relegation to Serie B and he is disappointed with their position on the table.

“The team counts. We are struggling and I can’t be happy,”he stated.

The striker has been linked with a move elsewhere after scoring 19 times in the Serie A for Serse Cosmi’s side but he is not willing to discuss his future at the moment.

“I don’t think about it . I have too much respect for my people to talk about the future , now I can’t think of anything else,” added the striker .

    Great Loyalty. No wonder he is scoring every day, he is simply thinking of his club but unfortunately, football is a team game and not a one man show. You are only as strong as your weakest link. A ,team with the poorest defence in Seria A, and yet one of the deadliest striker in Seria A. What a contradiction. Just a little investment in the defence during the Jan window would have saved Crotone.

    Now they can only make money from his sale, buy more players, then go back and fight in Seria B.

    Congratulations Simmy, you are destined to make history and rule the world. You can even overtake Lukaku as you did Ibrahimovic and others. Ride on our silent Achiver. Age is but a number. Attitude is everything.

    Is this a way of confirming that we are more blessed with so great a number of top talents now more than ever, cos players who are breaking goal records aren’t even sure of making it into the team; simy and onuachu_ meanwhile moffi went home with the match ball today after crushing kalu’s boudeux.
    Something great may just be on the way
