The new signing of Mavlon FC of Otukpo, Ibrahim Muhammed Beji was the cynosure of all eyes in the Nationwide League One (NLO), game against Flight FC at Gboko township stadium on Saturday evening.
Although, the game ended 2-1 in favour of Flight FC, Muhammed was able to prove how vital he is through his contribution on the pitch of play for his club to the delight of football fans that graced the occasion.
His deft touches, dribbling runs as he tormented the defenders of Flight FC, simply showed that he is a national asset, who was very instrumental to the success of the Flying Eagles at the WAFU B U 20 tournament in May where Nigeria emerged as champions.
Speaking after the game, Kayode Jabala, the chief coach of Mavlon FC said that it was sad that his team lost after his boys worked very hard to earn at least a point.
However, he was impressed with his team and particularly with the performance of Muhammed, who recently joined the team.
“We are not happy that the team lost. The players gave their all in the game, but football can be cruel sometimes when the result does not go as you planned,” Kayode Jabala said.
“With the performance i saw from my team, I think we should have left the field with at least a draw. Ibrahim Mohammed, who just joined the team played so well.
“Mavlon FC will continue to give room for young players to come and develop themselves here. That is the main focus of the club and we strongly believe that Mohammed is here to develop his game more.
“He has settled down very quickly with his team mates and played well within the tactical formation deployed for the game,” he said.
Muhammed Beji, the Nigerian U20 player showed his ability and talent and there is no doubt that he would continue to deliver value for Mavlon FC and his beloved country, Nigeria.
Mavlon FC new acquired Muhammed from Maikunkele Football Academy of Minna. He was initially with Tempo Academy in the same Minna, Niger State.
The exploits of Muhammed for the Flying Eagles of Nigeria at the WAFU B U 20 tournament in Niger two months ago, where he scored three goals caught the attention of some clubs in Europe and North Africa, but nothing concrete was offered to secure the player.
