Tosin Omoyele

Tosin Omoyele may have been a bag of nerves on Sunday after he lost a penalty early in the first half of the game against Katsina United but he picked himself up well enough to score just before half time.

The former Osun and Plateau United boy made a celebrated move to Enyimba in the off-season but unfortunately did not get off the mark until after seven match days. Now, he says he is ready to help himself and Enyimba.

“As a striker, I want to score, but the chances must keep coming. I do not have a goals target. I just want to score,” Omoyele told

“When you find yourself in a place like this with so much competition, it is to keep working hard.

“I am here to help Enyimba and to help my career too. I learn from my colleagues too.”

The long wait

But it had not been easy being Omoyele as both fans, media and the club eagerly waited for his first league goal.

“I am really grateful to God. A lot of people have been waiting for my first goal and I thank God it came against Katsina United.

“I understand the wait, and as a player, I know it is part of the game. I have been in this game for sometime and as a striker I know you miss stuff.

“I have scored penalties before and missed them, so when I missed that one, I had to up my confidence level.”

Tosin Omoyele told that he is still trying to understand his new team mates and how Enyimba play their football.

“My colleagues will know how I play, where I want the ball too. Some of the guys have been here for a while but I am still getting to be used to them.

“They will still need to know my movement pattern and how I want the ball played to me. All of these will take some time and is part of the learning and blending process,” Omoyele said.
