NPFL Top Scorer Joins New Club In Morocco
The top scorer in the Nigeria Professional Football League, NPFL last season Anthony Okpotu has left his Benue State team, Lobi Stars for a new Moroccan outfit.
Okpotu has signed the dotted lines with Moroccan side Diffa El jadidi who has handed him a three-year deal.
The Super Eagles B striker who has once played for Al Ittihad of Libya has since been unveiled by his new Moroccan team.
“I feel good joining the team, perfect time to move and for me to embrace another challenge in my career. I’m excited and I’m looking forward to the competition in Morocco,” Okpotu told Naijafootballplus.com from his new team base in Morocco.
The Lobi Stars striker who notched 19 goals to emerged highest goalscorer in the NPFL last season had unsuccessful trial with Danish League giant Brondby.
“I wouldn’t say it was long overdue for me to move abroad from the NPFL, when it’s time it will happen but if it’s not time it won’t happen. This is the approved time for me by God and it’s a perfect moment,” he said.
It was gathered that Okpotu’s performance during the last CHAN tournament hosted and won by Morocco aided his new move.
