Nwobodo To Secure His Dream With Ajax Amsterdam?
Ajax Amsterdam To Scout Obinna Nwobodo At AYC
Enugu Rangers mercurial midfielder Obinna Nwobodo, who is presently a member of the Nigeria Under-20 team listed by coach Manu Garba to feature at next month Africa Youth Championship, might secure a dream move to Dutch giant Ajax Amsterdam if he impresses at the tournament.
A close associate of the player revealed to SL10.ng that the 18 year old was recommended to the Dutch giants, who kept him under watch towards the end of last season, but his super showing at the recently concluded Super 4 invitational tournaments held in Abuja, convinced them he is worth a close view.
" We proposed him to Ajax towards the end of last season, as expected they kept him under watch but, they contacted us after the Super four after watching him and now they will be in Senegal to scout him and three other players", He told SL10.ng on the condition of anonymity.
Nwobodo who is gifted with good dribbling skills and visionary passes, is expected to play a pivotal role for Nigeria, alongside the duo of Ifeanyi Ifeanyi and Akinjide Idowu, in the midfield for Nigeria at the Africa Youth Championship, which also serves as a qualifying series for the Under-20 World cup, that will take place in New Zealand later in the year.
Ajax boasts of a rich connection with Nigerian players, with the duo of Finidi George and Kanu Nwankwo, the most successful among Nigeria players to have turned out for the Eredivisie side.
