Nigeria is lucky to have never a superstar female footballer like Asisat Oshoala and there is something the entire football Africa needs to learn from her as she joins FC Barcelona on loan from Chinese Women’s Super League outfit Dalian Quanjian.
Asisat Oshoala’s move to FC Barcelona was sealed after she passed her medical on Thursday, January 31, 2019, before signing her contract at the Camp Nou.
The 24-year-old talent was named African Women’s Footballer of the Year thrice and will now provide an extra attacking option for the Spanish side who are currently placed second in the Primera Division.
Speaking on her move, Oshoala said; “This is obviously one of the best clubs in the world. The team has a great history and wonderful football mentality. “I am excited about playing with Vicky Losada again. She’s a great midfielder, with a lot of energy and skill. I also met Fabiana in China and she helped me to make this decision”.
She added that; “My goal is to strengthen the team and help them to win and make history. This is a fantastic opportunity because I’m sure something big will happen here.” Oshoala has been handed jersey no. 20 and is in line for her debut when Barcelona host Albacete this weekend
