CAF CC: Nigerian-born Sakin Bolaji ready to lead Horoya over Enyimba

Guinea's Horoya AC Nigeria-born striker Sakin Bolaji is not afraid of breaking his compatriot's hearts when his club takes on Enyimba in CAF Confederation Cup quarterfinal in Aba on Sunday. 

The 25-year-old striker was born in Western Nigeria and has previously played for local sides Wikki Tourists, Rivers United as well as Aba Warriors before crossing over to the Guinean side. 

He is looking to forward to locking horns once again with Enyimba and fancies his chances of notching a goal once again. 

“Of course, I have scored against Enyimba before and I think that was in a league match played in Bauchi when I was with Wikki Tourists,” Bolaji, the moustachioed striker, told CAFOnline.com.

Bolaji has been in fine form since Horoya in 2017 from Rivers United. In the first season, he netted seven goals, followed it up with ten and has helped the club to clinch a treble in 2018. They won the Guinea Ligue 1; Guinea National Cup and Guinea Super Cup.

The Nigerian is yet to score this season after missing large part of the campaign with an injury. 

“I’m yet to score this season because I was injured at the beginning of the CAF Confederation Cup campaign. I am back to full fitness and have featured in two matches,” explained Bolaji who scored two goals in the 2017 Total CAF Confederation Cup for Rivers United against Uganda's KCCA and Morocco's FUS Rabat.
