Nigeria Professional Football League, NPFL, leading marksman Tunde Adeniji has vowed to break the NPFL goal record this season.
Adeniji who spoke shortly after being invited to the Super Eagles camp on Friday disclosed that his aim was to become the league’s highest goal scorer this season.
He added that his ultimate goal however, is to break the NPFL all time goal record of 23 goal set last season by Enyimba’s Mfon Udoh.
“My target is to break the record created by Mfon Udoh last season. He scored 23 goals and with the help of my team mates, I know I can go pass that record this season,” Adeniji noted.
The erstwhile Rising Stars of Akure forward, has scored 12 goals so far, one ahead of Heartland’s Bright Ejike who is on 11 goals.
Adeniji, 19, who was discovered by scouts of the Ondo State Football Agency, ODSFA, while playing for Methodist High School in Okitipupa, Ondo state has helped Sunshine Stars reclaim NPFL top position from Enyimba of Aba.
Meanwhile, he has expressed appreciation to new Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh for giving him the opportunity to prove himself in the senior national team.
Oliseh on Friday named the striker among a strong 23 home -based professionals for next month’s 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier away to Tanzania.
