Argentine Club Registers Okiki Afolabi, Silent On Tiongoli Tonbara


Argentina top division side Atletico Talleres de Cordoba has registered Nigerian forward Okiki Afolabi ahead of their campaign in the league this season, however there’s no report on his Nigerian compatriot at the team Tiongoli Tonbara.


The former Sunshine stars forward left Nigeria few months ago alongside Tonbara, who was then a member of the Nigeria U23s as a player of Bayelsa United for Argentina courtesy of Argentine agent Marcelo Houseman.

They started by testing with Racing Club but later left for Talleres de Cordoba, where it appears only Okiki stand a chance of signing with the club.

Okiki has played in three test games for Talleres and has won some section of the fans over with his all action style of play, which made him a feared force in the Nigeria Professional League before his move abroad.

Prior to leaving for Argentina, he scored 13 goals in the Nigerian league for Sunshine Stars and despite leaving the club two months ago, he still remains their top scorer.
