Nigerian player adapts to life in Norway

23 June 2015, 16:02

Lagos - Samuel Adegbenro has insisted that he was not under pressure to increase his goal tally after firing blanks in his last three games prior to the Norwegian Tippeligaen clash against FK Bodø/Glimt on Sunday.

The 19 - year - old says he has quickly settled into the team due to the support of his teammates, coaches, fans and the facilities he met on ground were topnotch.

''I wasn't under pressure because my coach here always stood by me. You know the facilities here are better and I've been encouraged,'' Samuel Adegbenro said to news24.com.

''I can say I have adapted quickly. When I came here the coaches and players showed me love and they took us like we were with them before, so that really helped us settle.

''Our target is to win at least one trophy this season because it has been a long time they've won any Cup.''

Samuel Adegbenro has racked up 516 minutes of game time since he debuted for Viking against Mjøndalen IF in the first week of April.

Along with Flying Eagles striker Suleiman Abdullahi, he committed his future to Viking for four years in the winter transfer market.
