Super Eagles goalkeeper trainer Ike Shorunmu has been identified as one of those responsible for the steady progress of Warri Wolves goalie, Chigozie Agbim.
Agbim has been working at close quarters with Shorunmu following his invitation to the Super Eagles ahead of next monthâ€™s Barrack Obama invitational tournament in the USA.
The young keeper was given some time off (along with other invitees) to play for his club in the Nigeria Premier League (NPL) at the weekend and he did not disappoint.
A goal keeping masterpiece over 90 minutes frustrated the champions, Enyimba at their fortress in Aba and the selectors of the weekly NPL awards were suitably impressed to subsequently hand the gloves to Agbim.
â€œI am happy to get the award but the most important is that the team (Wolves) gets good results. I thank my teammates for helping me achieve this,â€ Agbim told SuperSport.com.
It is not the first time Agbim has been selected into the hallowed list and the player is quick to praise national legend, Ike Shorunmu for his recent progress. Shorunmu has been tending the youngster at the Eagles camp in Abuja and the tips handed down to the agile goalie has left him chuffed.
