Akwa United defender Olisa Ndah has explained the reasons why he believes his teammate Effiong Ndifreke is the best striker in the NPFL.
Ndah has said that Ndifreke has a superior work rate compared to Kano Pillars’ Israel Abia at Rangers International of Enugu.
The trio are the league’s front three horses for the golden boot race that many see as a healthy scoring competition.
“Effiong Ndifreke is the one who has impressed most, not because he’s my teammate, but he doesn’t just score goals he works effortlessly for the team,” Ndah told Brila.
Ndifreke remains a goal behind the Abia’s goal chart lead of 12 goals. However, Ndah rates Abia as the one of the most challenging strikers he has ever faced. “Israel Abia is also good, Although I did not let him score against us both home and away he is a good striker, strong, quick and dangerous,” added the goalie.
