Chidera “Nigerian Iniesta ” Ejike Scores Twice As Valerenga Rout Aalesund


Nigeria U19 star Chidera Ejike was among the goal scorers for his Norwegian side Valerenga in their 5-1 win over Aalesund in a top division game in Norway.


Ejike put his team two goals up in the 7th minute with his first goal of the game which gave them a 2-0 lead before adding another in the 29th minute to once again help his team maintain their two goal cushion after Aalesund pull a goal back.

The brace took his tally for the season to three goals with two of the goals coming in a space of one month after he failed to score in his first four months at the club following his move from Geelec Football Academy of Jos.

Widely regarded as one of the top prospect in Nigeria youth football, he had a trial with Liverpool last season but saw the move broke down after the club failed to reach an agreement on the terms of the deal.

He turned down a chance to join Spanish La-Liga side Espanyol in preference for the move to Valerenga after meeting with top Nigerian agent Atta Aneke who convinced him to move to the Norwegian outfit.
