Super Eagles Striker Explains Goal Celebration
Scoring a goal in any football game is always a joyous moment and players have chosen different styles to celebrate their glory moments.
From dancing reggae to somersaulting, Nigerian players have served the world various celebration moves.
Though there was nothing dramatic coming from Olarenwaju Kayode when he scored the winning goal for Shaktar Donetsk on Friday, the Manchester City loanee has explained why he ran to celebrate with manager Paulo Fonseca.
''The match was not easy at all, the coach warned us about that. We tried our best to win it, and most importantly, we earned the three points,'' Olarenwaju Kayode told Shakhtar's official webpage.
''Why I ran to the coach after scoring the goal? Paulo Fonseca is one of the best coaches, he developed an effective playing system that really works.
''I think we deserved this victory because we fought together. So far, I can’t compare myself to the top scorer Facundo.
''I think that my major contribution is not so much the number of goals, but the quality I deliver. I'm a team player, and when I get a chance - I utilise it.''
Kayode could bid farewell to Manchester City if he impresses for the remainder of the campaign as Shakhtar Donetsk inserted a purchase option into their agreement with the English champions.
