National goalkeepers trainer combs local league in search of new discoveries

Published

on

Determined to get the best goalkeepers for the national team, Ike Shorunmu, has embarked on aggressive search for the new goaltenders.

The ex-Super Eagles goalkeeper pledged that his selection process would be devoid of sentiment, adding, “I am currently focused on the league to select good keepers that will fight for shirts ahead of the forthcoming African Nations Championship (CHAN).

“My mission is to ensure Nigeria’s CHAN Eagles have quality goalkeepers that will give good account of themselves in the team. While we wait for the CAF draws, I want to ensure that the goalkeeping department is taken care of,” he said.

On CAF’s decision to play the final game of this year’s Champions League final in Uyo, Shorunmu said the hosting right would be a good advertisement for Nigerian football and could also attract sponsors to the Nigeria league.

“Hosting the CAF Champions League final will put Nigeria in the World map. All eyes will be on Nigeria on the final day, which might wake up some corporate bodies or well-meaning individuals to invest in the league.

“The hosting will also make the world view Nigeria as still a top country in African football even if the country’s teams are not playing in the final of the Champions League.”

CAF recently confirmed that the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo, will host the 2022 Champions League on Friday, May 20, 2022.

Senior Special Assistant on Sports to Akwa Ibom State Governor, Paul Bassey, disclosed this.
