Nigerian teenage star shoots team to Malaysian league crown
Fast rising Nigerian star, Adeyemi Shanuolu is currently in a celebration mood after lifting the 2018/2019, M4 League title with his team, MAHSA FC in Malaysia.
The 19-year-old attacking midfielder, who previously played for AMPM FC at Johor Liga in the country, lifted the league title after MAHSA FC secured 54 points from 24 matches to emerge champions.
The talented footballer was instrumental to his team’s success in the league as he scored 11 league goals and provided 13 assists in 21 matches.
The young sensation in a recent chat attributed his great form and the team’s success to Nigeria’s resilient spirit, hard work and determination.
Adeyemi joined the title winning team at the beginning of the season after playing for AXIS 02 and AMPM FC in the Johor Liga in the previous season, where he established himself as one of the finest players in the country.
“I’m delighted to have lifted the league title in my first year with the team. I will keep working hard to make myself, my fans and my country proud,’’ said the midfielder.
The young star, who models his game around former Real Madrid and Bayern Munich star, Arjen Robben, said success has always been his goal and hopes to play for French Ligue 1 champions, PSG in the future.
Despite his eligibility to play for Malaysia, the Lagos State-born footballer said wearing the green-white-green jersey is his dream, adding he is willing to take up the challenge if given the opportunity in the future.
