Nura Abdullahi who starred for AS Roma youth team in their 4-0 win over Red Bull Salzburg in their UEFA Youth League round of 16 game yesterday has earned praises from his teammate Lorenzo Vasco.

Nura’s Primavera teammate Vasco believes the 19 year old right back who is well known for his frightening pace is the fastest player he has ever played with in his short career.

“He joined us this year and slotted into the group immediately. He’s the fastest player I’ve ever played with.” He said on the club official website while rating his Primavera teammate.

On Nura’s Nigeria colleague at the club Sadiq Umar, Vasco said he was quite a handful when he played against him while the Nigerian was at Spezia and he is glad they are teammates now.

We played against him and Nura in the Final Eight last season when they were at Spezia. They were a real handful but we won in the end and I’m glad they’re with us this year. He’s settled in well too and it’s great that he’s getting some first-team experience.”
