Almeria striker Sadiq makes vow to Super Eagles fans ahead of AFCON 2021

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.

“First of all I give thanks to God to be part of this team, you know it’s a dream come true, out of millions of people I am among those to represent the country so I feel good and blessed,” Sadiq told MTN Nigeria’s We Move With Super Eagles.

“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.”

On his final word to Super Eagles fans, he said : “Keep supporting us and be patient with us and we’ll try to give you all what you deserve.”

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.
