Ishaq Kayode: Osho Says Red-Hot Striker ‘A Potential National Team Player’ (AUDIO)

Rivers United chief coach Fatai Osho has charged Nigeria Professional League (NPFL) leading scorer Ishaq Kayode to maintain his current form, adding that the former Remo Stars striker is a ‘potential national team’ player.

Kayode has netted four times in just three matches, including the winner as Rivers United shocked Enyimba 1-0 in Aba in a Match Day 3 NPFL encounter on Wednesday.

The 21-year-old forward also grabbed a brace as Stanley Eguma’s men thrashed Katsina United 3-0 on Sunday and netted in his side’s 1-1 draw at Lobi Stars on the opening weekend of the season.

Reacting to Kayode’s impressive form, the former Enyimba coach Osho disclosed that the ex-Golden Eaglets star has attracted offers from different ‘African countries and beyond’, while hoping that his goal-scoring prowess will help Rivers United get results.

“Those who were at the continent knew quite well what he (Ishaq Kayode) is fond of,” Osho said. “He is somebody that a lot of African teams and beyond are looking for right now.

“And we are talking to him, he has to keep it that way. He is a potential national team player. Anybody can take that to the bank. He mustn’t just get carried away.

“That’s what you do when you have a young player coming up like that, doing very well. (He has) tactical discipline, a lot of talent in him. And when you have such individual brilliance, you must put it in great use for your team to get results.”
