Slovenia outfit NK Maribior have completed the signing of Ishaq Rafiu from the Nigerian Champions Rivers United on a 3 year contract.
NK Maribor made the announcement via their club on Tuesday morning after the forward completed his routine medicals with the club medicals staff.
“We can introduce another new player: Ishaq Kayode Rafiu 21 years old from the Nigerian Champions Rivers United”
“If he hadn’t been part of the national team’s trip to the USA, where he wore the team’s jersey for the first time in the match against Mexico, he would have ended the season as the most efficient individual in the league.”
“We had to react, to expand the staff we also need a new solution in the wing positions”
“I’m glad we got the deal done, Ishaq is here as a player for the present and the future. He comes with good recommendations, as a Nigerian champion”
which the players from Nigeria often prove as a breeding ground for talent. In the meantime, he has already found himself under the scrutiny of many clubs, so we managed to catch the right moment to lure him to Ljudski vrt.
“He scored 13 goals in the just concluded Nigeria Professional Football League 2021/2022 season”
Maribor will play their next PrvaLiga fixture against Olimpija at Ljudski vrt on August 6 and are currently seventh on the log with three points from two matches.
