Okpotu inspired by Solskjaer
Lobi Stars youngster, Tony Okpotu, has revealed that a rare
opportunity to train under Manchester United legend, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, at Norwegian champions, Molde, has boosted his football development.
The Nigerian forward, who earned rave reviews at Lobi Stars last
term, recently returned from Norway, after tests at Norwegian sides,
SK Brann and Molde.
After his inability to secure a contract at Brann, Okpotu had
another chance at the Norwegian champions, but returned home after
“I’m honoured to have spent some days receiving instructions from
a legend like Solskjaer who won several titles at Manchester United.
The experience will make me a better player because I returned with useful lessons.
“I had a great time at Brann and Molde,” Okpotu told supersport.com.
An inspiring season in the colours of Lobi Stars earned Okpotu
invitations to Nigeria’s Super Eagles and the Under-20 team in 2012.
Okpotu has already been registered by Lobi for the 2013 Caf
“I belong to Lobi so I’m back in Makurdi,” he said to supersport.com.
