Super Eagles Goalkeeper Maduka Okoye Now A Spartan

Super Eagles goalkeeper Maduka Okoye has signed for Dutch side Dutch Sparta Rotterdam from Fortuna Düsseldorf.

The German-born Okoye arrived at the club as a free agent after the expiration of his contract with German Bundesliga side Fortuna Düsseldorf.

Okoye signed two years contract, with an option for another two years extension.

The 21-year-old goalkeeper, who holds both a German and Nigerian passport, made his Super Eagles debut back in November 2019, in a friendly match against Brazil which ended 1 – 1.

He came on for injured Francis Uzoho in the game and was able to keep a clean sheet against the star-studded Selecao of Brazil.

‘‘With Maduka we bring in great talent. He was in the interest of several clubs from different countries, but he believes he can take the next step in Sparta. We believe he can be of value to this club and are happy that he signed here, ” the coach said.
