‘I will take the NPFL by storm’ – Selim Olalekan vows
Mazino Dickson, Abuja
Nigerian teenage footballer Selim Olalekan has vowed to take the Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) by storm.
The 19-year old central midfielder stated this while speaking to VON in Abuja.
Olalekan is currently playing for Dynamic Football Academy in Lagos, but believes his versatility, close ball-control and pace will make him a menace to defenders in the NPFL if he makes the big break.
Olalekan said besides his love for the game, he believes his innate talent will help to change the lives of his family for the better.
“I came from a poor family and I love helping people around me of which I don’t have money to do that now. Well, I strongly believe that God is on my side and playing football will continue to be my primary assignment till I reach my set goals in life. The only thing I believe can end my current challenges and give me much money that will support my vision I have for humanity is football.”
He insists that his exposure to the NPFL will push his quest for future national team appearances in no small way.
