Mutiu Adepoju, ex super eagles Midfielder, has noted that Umar Sadiq ex Almeria player will soon measure up to late super eagle legend Rashidi Yekini.
Adepoju said this in an interview, where he praised Sadiq for his performance at his new club as he already scored a goal for them last weekend.
According to Adepoju, he has never seen him or spoken with him, but he’s a big fan of Sadiq and watches all his games, he’s an incredible player so to speak, and can achieve a lot more.
He further added that Sadiq reminds him of the late Rashidi Yekini, and he believes that Sadiq can measure up to Yekini’s achievements.
“No, I have never spoken to him; but I follow him, I watch all his games and he seems like a great player, he can give more,” Adepoju told Mundo Deportivo.
“He reminds me of another Nigerian we had, Rashidi Yekini, who we used to call ‘gangling’. I think Sadiq is young and can catch up with Yekini.
“He has a goal, quality, height and runs more or less like him.”
Sadiq is an incredible player, if we can recall, Rubi Almeria’s head coach expressed his displeasure over the bid for Sadiq by other clubs, he even said that he’s afraid that other clubs might take his player from him. Sadiq who recently transferred to Real Sociedad has already registered a goal for the club.
