2016 Olympics bronze medalist Umar Sadiq has made a vow to Super Eagles fans ahead of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, saying that the players will give their best to ensure a good performance in Cameroon.
The former AS Roma striker has been the undoubted star at Almeria since his move to the Andalusian province, with a goal involvement of 45 (31 goals, 14 assists) in 64 appearances across all competitions, leading to constant speculation over his future.
Sadiq was a player of interest to erstwhile Nigeria manager Gernot Rohr and was even named on few rosters but club commitments prevented him from making his senior debut under the Franco-German.
“About the 2020-2021 season it was not easy for me my first season in Spain because I have to learn the language and a lot of things, new home, but I have to adapt quickly.”
The 24-year-old Sadiq has to come to the party in Cameroon with Victor Osimhen, Paul Onuachu and Emmanuel Dennis ruled out of the tournament due to a combination of injuries and non-release by their European clubs.
