Characterised by speed, strength and body-balance, Usman was arguably the most versatile and combative player in that team.

According to his manager, he will stay with Olympique Lille for the next two weeks. And during this time, he will be accessed by club’s officials as he continues to develop and probably gets contracted.

“Even though the Golden Eaglet of Nigeria crashed out in the quarter finals of the U-17 AFCON, Usman Ajibola did well to catch the attention of a few European clubs,” his manager wrote on Twitter.

“And he would now have the chance to get his first European experience with the French Giant Lille OSC.”

And while discussing live with the manager and owner of the Academy, Olatunji Okuku, he said;

“We’re nothing but pencil in the hands of our creator; we just do our best and leave the rest to God.”
