Nigerian International Aliyu Ibrahim, 18 years old Under 20 player, has signed for Lokomotiva Zagreb in Croatia. One of the most talented player I have seen recently before he moved to Croatia for this deal. I have watched him train with HACO football academy in Area 3 mini stadium in Abuja and Aliyu as he is fondly called is no ordinary player.
Aliyu Ibrahim is the type of player that would soon be playing for the Super Eagles and a big club in Europe. For a striker who knows this game very well, you would think Aliyu is already playing for some of the best teams in Europe when he is on the ball.
Aliyu reminds me of Sadio Mane, only he is more skillful. He has that power like Mane and this is Nigeria’s future.
Ken Idama, Aliyu’s agent, told NEWISSUES that the deal has been sealed with Lokomotiva Zagreb and he said it’s a great place to start up in Europe.
Aliyu Ibrahim from Kano was best player in Under 17 with 34 goals in 20 matches. Unfortunately he couldn’t make it to Under 17.
