Tijani: Rooney Influenced My Transfer To Plymouth Argyle

Muhammad Tijani has revealed the reason behind his decision to join Sky Bet Championship club Plymouth Argyle.

The 23-year-old will spend the 2024/25 season on loan with Plymouth Argyle.

The former Flying Eagles striker moved to England after spending one season with Czech Republic outfit, Slavia Prague.

Tijani stated that he took the decision to link up with Argyle after talks with head coach, Wayne Rooney.

“Actually, he [Wayne Rooney] did. He is a football legend not only in England but in the whole world. He plays like a striker also [like me]. [So] I think it is a good move for me, that’s why I took the deal,” Tijani told ojbsports.

“He really influenced the move, because when he called I was like ‘wow! Look who is calling, it’s Wayne Rooney.’ I was shocked. I had to ask my agent, ‘are you sure it’s him?’ He said, ‘yes, it’s him, of course, just take the call,’ and then we spoke, and it was very good.”

He scored four goals in 19 appearances across all competitions for Slavia Prague last season.

    This Tijani is far better than many Super Eagles strikers. He should be invited soon.
