Zaidu Sanusi popularly refereed to as “Nigerian Gareth Bale” is currently out injured which has put a halt to his trials with Portuguese second divison side Gil Vicente.

Sanusi is nursing an ankle injury that has stopped him from training the last three days further reducing his chances of impressing the technical crew of the team in his bid to earn a contract.

The 18 year old plays like Walsh winger Gareth Bale and is very much at home playing as a left full back or winger although he has also played in central midfield a couple of times.

He arrived Portugal a fortnight ago alongside Nonso Collins a central midfielder who has been pushing his case for a contract with fine performances in training according to reports gathered by. Owngoalnigeria.com.

We further gathered, the deal was facilitated with Faisal Abdullahi a Kaduna based scout acting as the intermediary for the boys after they were picked by Portuguese scouts who came into the country few months ago on a scouting mission.
