Lobi Stars striker Okpotu wants to score more goals

31 March 2016, 17:32

Lagos - Lobi Stars striker Anthony Okpotu says all he wants right now is to keep scoring for his club.

The forward is keen to return Lobi Stars to continental competitions by finishing among the top three teams in the Nigeria Premier League this season.

"Right now I am only focused on every game as the season goes. And if I have the chance to score in every match I will take the chance, but it is not about me because Lobi is a team. I am happy I have scored six goals so far, which is good for me,” he said on SuperSport.

"I want to help Lobi do very well this season. This club gave me the chance to be a footballer and I can only repay them back, especially the fans for believing in me. So I hope I can help them win something or even qualify for one of the competitions on the continent."

The former Al-Ittihad Tripoli man has accounted for half of the goals that Lobi Stars have scored this season but feels the credit should not go to just him alone and remained adamant on not setting himself a goal target.

"I didn't know I have scored that (half of my team's goals). I must thank my teammates and coaches for that. But like I said, I won't set any target of the number of goals I want to score," he said.

Okpotu has scored six league goals this season and leads the scorers' chart in the NPFL. He also has three assists.
