Fit again former Nigeria U-20 ace Suleiman Abdullahi has outlined his priority for the year 2017, which include helping his team Eintracht Braunschweig gain promotion to the Bundesliga and playing for the Super Eagles.
Speaking with Owngoalnigeria.com in Kaduna shortly after the Moses Simon wedding anniversary game, the 20 year old who joined the team in the summer from Norwegian side Viking expressed his joy at being fit again.
Abdullahi had a whirlwind start with the high flying German side scoring in almost all of their pre season games before picking up a knee injury in their final warm up game, which restricted him to just one appearance before the league went on a Christmas break.
” I’m very happy to be fit again. It’s boring when you don’t play football but one has to be patient and take set backs when they come. I have learnt that during my injury forced absence”, Abdullahi told Owngoalnigeria.com.
” This 2017 means a lot to me, it is the year where I hope to play for Nigeria that is if by the grace of God am able to help my team secure promotion to the Bundesliga. We are top now with a two point lead”.
