Hat-trick Hero Igbonu Desires More Goals

Nigerian star performer in Europe last week, Sylvester Igbonu, says he wants more goals for his Danish club, FC Midtjylland.

Igbonu scored all three goals on Friday as Midtjylland defeated OB Odense 3-2 in an explosive encounter.

The striker is joint top-scorer in Denmark with five goals. His club Midtjylland occupy top spot in the Danish Superliga after seven games.

He scored once in the 3-1 away defeat of Sonderjyske , then grabbed the winner in the 2-1 win over Kobenhavn, before hitting a hat-trick on Friday.

The striker said he was delighted to have scored a hat-trick; noting that his job as a striker was to score goals.

“What is most important is that we are top of the Superliga and I am hoping to score more goals to help Midtjylland remain there,” Igbonu said.

The former Ebedei United striker hailed his teammates for their hard work on the pitch, insisting that unity was a key factor in Midtjylland’s early form in the season.

“What is important here is that we are one united family. We play as a team. My teammates have been awesome and they make the job easy. It’s not all about me but about the team. We are a united group,” Igbonu added.
