The top scorer of the men football team of Nigeria at the Rio 2016 Olympics Sadiq Umar has explained the qualities that has helped him to five goals in ten games in the Dutch Eredivisie for NAC Breda , where he is on loan from Serie A side Roma.
Sadiq is widely regarded as the mid season signing of the year in Holland due to his performances and his form is a surprise to many consider the fact that he didn’t get games during the first half of the season at Torino, where he was also on loan.
Speaking after his latest goal for NAC Breda which came in their 1-2 loss to Sparta Rotterdam, the 21 year old who has been linked with a possible call up to the senior national team of Nigeria said his ability to constantly make runs behind the defenders is one of his strengths.
“It’s the movement that’s important, if you run well, you get the ball, sometimes you make a hundred runs without the ball and you score with the next ball, you always have to keep pushing. I think that is one quality I have over most Nigerian strikers”, Jololo as Sadiq is fondly called told FoxSports.
