About Adeboye Amosu



  • I have always known that most sport journalist in Nigeria contribute a lot to the problems of under development of our sports especially our football. Just imagine the match report above by Mr Amosun all you read in the report is Okereke, Okereke. Meanwhile 3 Nigerians played in that match between F2f Grunge and Lask, Bournavecture Dennis and Okereke were on for Fc Brugge while
    Otubanjo was on for Lack. Dennis was superb, the guy is hugely talented and he was a torn on the flesh of their opponents but it was a different ball game for Okereke, he did not play well in that match and I don’t know why any report will choose to ignore Dennis with no me tion of his name at all and make the story all about Okereke. It is not right, this is why a player as good as Dennis is not in our National team. Otubanjo on the other hand did not have much time on the pitch but he showed some flashes.

  • Adeboye Amosu what do you think? Give Peter Olayinka, David Okereke and Emmanuel Blessed a chance in the Eagles.
