Nigeria U17 Captain Igho Pictures In Training With Rosenborg Not Lillestroem

Published on: 10 August 2017

As first reported by captain of the 2016 Nigeria U-17 team Igho Ogbu is presently in Norway training with Rosenborg in a view of bagging a deal when he turns 18 next year.

He is with Rosenborg and not Lillestroem as earlier reported by this portal, and in our usual style we have obtained official pictures of the central defender who can also play in defensive midfield in the colours of Rosenborg.

17 year old Igho trained with Polish side Legia Warsaw in March, but they failed to keep contact with his nursery team Geelec Football Academy, which gave Rosenborg the chance to snatch him up.

If he impresses the handlers of the team, he will be handed a pre contract which will metarphose into a professional deal once he turns 18 in February next year.

Already he has had a taste of professional football in Nigeria as he featured for Gombe United in 12 games this season, with his last appearance coming in their last league game against Shooting Stars in Ibadan.
