24 year old Sikiru Olatunbosun has sealed a two-year deal with Turkish club side Menemen Spor Kubulu for an undisclosed sum.
The former MFM Football club striker Sikiru Olatunbosun, who became an internet sensation and shot to limelight after winning the CNN goal of the week award in 2017, from a goal he scored from flick against Enugu Rangers, is set to begin life in Turkey.
It would be recalled that only one Nigerian (Kelechi Iheanacho) had ever won the award before for a goal he scored in an international match against Tanzania. Before then, no Nigerian Premier League player had ever been nominated for the award until Olatunbosun’s goal which won him the CNN award with more than 80 percent of the vote. The young striker had attributed the goal to the grace of God.
