AS Roma 18 year old Nigeria forward Sadiq Umar is hoping he will be given a starting role when they play serine A Giants AC Milan on Saturday at the Guissepe Meazza Stadium in the Serie A.
The three match suspension on Edin Dzeko which an appeal failed to overturn gives the Nigerian who has two goals in his last two games for Roma an edge but with Mohammed Salah returning from injury he still faces competition to start.
“Am hoping the coaches will play me from start but the teams comes first and whatever role am asked to play,I hope to give my best” He told Owngoalnigeria.com.
Many would have thought the Nigerian will be hoping to make the use of Dzeko absence but he says he is in no hurry to step into the big goals boots of the Bosnia international.
Sadiq have two goals in the Serie A while the Bosnian who has more games than the Nigerian have just three goals to his name but “Jololo” like Sadiq is called says he is focused on himself.
“I hope Edin will come back 100% better than he was before he got suspended,am focused on myself and working hard to be the best and not on replacing Edin”.
