Finnish Side KuPS Hands Trial To Relatively Unknown Nigerian Striker Philip Njoku


Finnish top division side KuPS have handed 20 year old Nigerian forward Philip Njoku a trial chance, which will run for one week.


The club announced via official channel that the forward will take part in training and test games during his stay with the team.

He has already resumed training with the team according to the club, and could play in a test game for the team before the end of the week.

Last season he defended the colours of fellow Finnish side FC Inter Turku, where he played 12 times and scored once for the team.

Comfortable as an attacking midfielder, or as a right winger, he could join the Nigerian duo of Gbolahan Salami and Azubuike Egwuekwe at the club which once had four Nigerians on their books.

However Aliyu Abubakar and Paul Onobi left the team in the summer as their deal was not renewed by the modest Finnish side.
