Nigerian League top scorer, Emem Udouk, aims for new goal record

A Nigerian Premier League and Dolphins FC striker, Emem Udouk, has said he would like to set a new goal record in the elite league by breaking the existing 20 goals record.

The player, who has scored 19 goals so far, with six goals against Nembe City FC during a home league match on Wednesday, told PREMIUM TIMES, Thursday, that he was on a mission to smash the existing records and to also create a new record in the 2013/14 league season.

“With help of my team-mates and coach I will make it possible, but I have to be focused and more committed,” he said.

Speaking on his targets this season, the player who scored eight goals for Dolphins FC last season said he would like to win the FA Cup and grab a continental ticket.

“Winning the league is not bad, but those two are my targets,” he said.

The former U20 national team player, who was recently invited to the Super Eagles, added that he would not mind a regular call up to the national team based on his current form.

“Every player has their own chance; it is left for the coach to decide and I won’t mind being there regularly. I have tried my best and I’m on my best form right now. I will always do my best always”

“I’m thinking of moving to Europe in January and with my present form, it will be possible. You will get to know about very soon,” he said.

Uduok is currently the highest goal scorer in the Nigerian league with 19 goals, a goal short of the 20 goals record set three seasons ago by Jude Aneke.

Uduok has already set a new record of the player to score the highest number of goals in a single game in Nigeria league history with his six goals, Wednesday.

Gbolahan Salami of Warri Wolves has scored 17 goals so far; Enyimba’s Mfon Udoh, 18 goals while Ighodalo Osaguona of Enugu Rangers has 16 goals.
