Olaniyi glad to be back among the goals and enjoying life at Leopards
After a frustrating start to life at AFC Leopards, Fasanmi Ojo Olaniyi is finally showing the potential that earned him a move to the FKF Premier League giants last December.
The Nigerian has scored three goals in his last two matches after blanking during the previous seven, with that form providing a welcome boost for Leopards.
The forward told Citizen Digital he believes there is more to come from him after helping Leopards to back-to-back victories over Mathare United.
“I pray to God to help me keep moving forward with his form and to keep scoring goals to help the team because I have been working so hard.
“The hard work continues because as a striker, your job is to score goals. No matter what you do on the field but people are looking upon you to score goals,” Olaniyi said.
Since moving to Leopards from Kakamega Homeboyz in a deadline day deal, the former Soy United player admits he is finally enjoying life at his new home.
“I feel great and I really appreciate my coaches, the technical bench and my team mates who really encourage me. They never discourage me and I think this is my 12th game I play for the club and I just have two goals,” he said.
Olaniyi thanked the Ingwe faithful and pledged to capture their imaginations on the pitch.
“Very good fans who never want to see the team lose matches and they want to see us winning every game and that is a great motivation to me as a striker. When they come to watch us we should always work hard to give something to them in return.”
Leopards have a testing outing against KCB FC in their next league fixture.
