Bayelsa’s foreign trio excites Bosso



Bayelsa United gaffer, Ladan Bosso, has expressed satisfaction with the contributions of the foreign trio of Guindo Abdoulaye (Mali), Salomon Junior (Republic of Benin) and Eric Frimpong (Ghana) to the club’s campaign this term.

The duo of Abdoulaye and Junior have since put their names in the club’s score chart.

Abdoulaye, a former player of Warri Wolves, Kwara United and Dolphins, has scored two goals, while Salomon Junior, who is in his first season in Nigeria, has scored once.

“The trio has done well so far. In fact, Junior has justified his new role as captain of the team and Abdoulaye is brilliant.

“Frimpong is not new to the Nigerian league after stints at Niger Tornadoes and Enyimba. I’ve known him before he joined his first Nigerian club,” Bosso told SuperSport.com.

The fourth foreigner at the club is Nigerian-born Benin Republic goalkeeper, Emmanuel Fabiyi.

It’s the first time the former Nigerian champions will have as much as four foreigners in its squad for a season.

Bayelsa is third on the log with 49 points.
