Nwankwo, Atshimene hail Eunisell for inspiring NPFL stars with boot award
Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) stars, Silas Nwankwo and Charles Atshimene, have hailed Eunisell for instituting the boot award to inspire and celebrate players in the local league.
Both players were recently named joint winners of the award by Eunisell following their neck-and-neck goal race last term that produced 19 goals each.
With each goal scored valued at N200, 000, the duo will receive N3.8 million each and the prestigious Eunisell Boot. The award highlights Eunisell’s commitment to the growth of football in Nigeria.
Nasarawa United’s Nwankwo said: “I couldn’t sleep when I was told of the award.
“Thanks Eunisell for making our league stars see a big reason to put in their best during the season. This honour is special and one of a kind.
“It’s a pleasure to win the Eunisell Boot as this is great motivation for me to achieve more in this career I have chosen.” Nwankwo also achieved a club record as the first Nasarawa United player to score 19 goals in the top flight. Joint winner, Akwa United’s Charles Atshimene, equally applauded Eunisell for the initiative.
“I really commend Eunisell for the Eunisell Boot Award, which will bring more publicity to the league. I hope more organisations can join to do what Eunisell is doing to the league”.
“I feel happy and overwhelmed because it’s a great feeling being honoured with the Eunisell Boot award. I thank God for making this happen,” he stated.
Atshimene scored 19 goals in his first season with the Uyo side.
