Ibrahim, Udoh to get full Eunisell boot rewards, says Ikenga
Sponsors of the award for the highest goal scorer in the Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL), Eunisell have announced that this year the reward would go to both Sanusi Ibrahim and Mfon Udoh, who were joint top scorers in the 2018/2019 league season.
According to Eunisell, the duo will be presented with a cheque for N2 million for the ten goals they scored. The Eunisell Boot values a goal at N200, 000.
Eunisell Group Managing Director, Mr. Chika Ikenga said, “Our logic is simple; both players deserve to be rewarded for their performances. The eligibility to be awarded the Eunisell Boot is based on the most goals scored. This past season saw Ibrahim and Udoh each scoring 10 goals. We look no further than that; there are no technical considerations that we factor in. We are delighted for these two players at the top of their game.”
He added: “The rationale behind Eunisell introducing the award in 2018 was three-fold: First, we set out to help increase the standard of professional football in Nigeria through incentive and awareness.
“Second, demonstrate to the youth that playing football in the professional league in Nigeria, is a viable career and third, increase spectator interest and support for local teams and players.”
The inaugural Eunisell Boot winner was former Kano Pillars striker, Junior Lokosa, now playing for Tunisian and African champions, Esperance Sportif.
Lokosa commented, “I wish Ibrahim and Udoh well, winning the Eunisell Boot had a dramatic and positive impact on my career. Congratulations to them both.”
