Lobi Stars land Barnabas Imenger



Caf Confederations Cup campaigners, Lobi Stars, have signed Nigerian International, Barnabas Imenger, after the expiration of his six-month contract at Sweden’s second tier side, Trelleborgs FF.

The signing of the Nigerian International who left rivals, Kwara United for Sweden in 2012, is a significant coup for Lobi supremo, Dominic Iorfa, who is plotting a raid on the continent and domestic assignments.

Imenger, who earned his international debut against Angola and got a second against Egypt, both in 2012, has since resumed training with the Makurdi based side.

Lobi Stars will benefit from his skillful movement and excellent finishing.

supersport.com learnt that Imenger has been handed number 21 at the club.

“It’s good to be back in the country and I’m looking forward to a good time at Lobi Stars.

“As a striker, my ambition is to score goals for the team and play well for my teammates to score too. I’m okay with 21 because the other numbers are unavailable,” Imenger said to supersport.com.

Imenger started his football lessons at Lobi Stars juniors before heading for the Kwara Football Academy, where he was tutored by former Nigerian gaffer, Clemens Westerhof.

The Kwara Football Academy eventually loaned him to Kwara United, where he became a cult hero.

Imenger was outstanding at Kwara United and former coach of the team, Tunde Sanni later attributed the team’s problem in front of goal to the exit of the youngster.

Interestingly, Imenger reunites with his father, Barnabas, who is a backroom staff at the Makurdi side managed by Iorfa, a former Nigerian International and Seoul ’88 Olympic star.
