Margao: Sporting Club de Goa have completed the signing of 29-year-old Odafa Okolie on Thursday for the 2015-16 season. At the same day Miguel Garcia also revived by the club.
The 29-year-old had initially joined Sporting Goa mid-way through the season from Churchill Brothers. After impressing with eight goals in nine appearances which helped the club stay afloat, the club didn’t waste much time in keeping him for the next season.
“I would like to thank God, my wife and family, the Sporting Clube de Goa President, coaching staff, players and Flaming Orange fans for supporting me,” stated Odafa.
Club President Vaz remarked, “We have begun a partnership with one of the all-time leading goal scorers in Indian football. The dynamics of this synergy will play out on the field next season.”
“As Odafa motivates his team-mates to challenge for honours, we are sure they will also assist him in reaching his past feats of finishing as the top goal scorer in the I-League. The stage is set for some exciting times ahead,” he added.
