Little known Nigerian forward Anointed Chukwu enhanced his chances of bagging a deal with Manchester City with a goal in a trial game against Blackpool.
Anointed, 16, has finished as top scorer for every club he’s played for in the last five season, including an incredible 42-goal-haul for his District side in one year.
Spotted during a trial tournament in the United Kingdom, he is reportedly on the watchlist of several Championship teams in England, although he has had his chance with some Premier League teams in the past.
He has had trials with Crystal Palace and Southampton in the past, and according to his mum, Grace Anointed he was quite at their level when he went there two years ago.
Born to a Nigerian Father, he is eligible for both Nigeria and England, but he is yet to be called up by any of the country at any level.
