Rayon Sports FC is targeting Nigerian striker Okpara Ugochukwu who began his one week trial with the club this week.
Upon his arrival in Kigali, Ogochukwu said that he was happy to be in Rwanda and excited for the opportunity to be part of Rayon Sports.
“Rayon is a lovely team that I have heard a lot about, I hope I pass the trials and sign a contract soon. I am looking forward to my first training on Thursday.” He said.
The striker who is said be 26 years old began his trails on Thursday 23rd and fans cannot quite believe his age on seeing him at the pitch.
Social media has reacted to the player’s age: Douglas Kisembo wrote “Tell me it’s a joke,” Teshome Chuchu wrote “U must be kidding me bro, he looks 46”
Mercy Elizabeth Rita joked, “He looks early 70”: Charilitah Chicha Wambui wrote “If this guy is 26 then am not born”: Asher Jane Wuod Jane “Nigerians with age”: Mulemi Gregory Omera this is someone’s grandpa”: Winnie Mandelah Mc’okêlloh was asking whether it is “26 or 62??”
Samson Kidha “Why are Kenyans soo nosy about peoples ages ? Acheni MTU afanye kazi yake”: Dickson Mwanza “I’m still in the womb myself. Are you sure 26? Brother to Diego Costa”: Bonny K’ochieng “Huyu jamaa cant be past 35. He was at Raja Casablanca in 2010”
Others fans went as far suggesting that it was a typing error maybe the correct figure is 62years.
He previously played for Raja Casablanca in Morocco, African Sport in Ivory Coast and AS Togo Port in Togo.
