Akpeyi’s Agent: It's A Dream For Every African Player To Play In Europe

The agent of Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi has thanked Vincent Enyeama for the comments he made about the Amakhosi shot-stopper, while also speaking about the future prospects for the player. 

In an interview with Soccer Laduma, the experienced Nigerian goalkeeper spoke about how his countryman Akpeyi has what it takes to succeed in Europe.

Speaking to the Siya crew, agent, Mohammed Lawal has thanked Enyeama while also discussing possibilities for the 33-year-old Amakhosi shot-stopper.

“Vincent Enyeama is a well-respected goalkeeper in Africa. He has done well for himself. He has been playing in Europe for a while. He did well in Israel and moved to Lille in France. Vincent is one of the few players who succeeded in the French Ligue 1. I think he was the first goalkeeper in the French League to have about 11 consecutive clean sheets. Daniel spent time with him in the national team, before his retirement and obviously he looks up to him,” said Lawal.

“It’s wonderful that he made the comments he made in the interview about him. For a well-respected goalkeeper like him to come out and say those words about Daniel is great. Daniel is very ambitious. He is working very hard and I think it is a dream for every African player to play in Europe. But that’s not Daniel’s priority right now. He is focused at Kaizer Chiefs and is looking forward to helping Kaizer Chiefs to achieve their objectives,” added the representative.
