“No alternative but to extend”, Okobi extends Eskilstuna United Stay

“For me, there was no alternative but to extend the contract with Eskilstuna United,” said Okobi.


“I enjoy the city very well, it is the right size for me, much quieter than in the big cities and the chaos that I am used to in Nigeria. I also enjoy the club, which gives me the condition to constantly develop.


“We had a fantastic summer and fall when we went from the bottom to a medal. It was my first medal in Sweden, which I am very proud of.  We worked hard together and it produced results.


“2019 season is one of my best seasons in Sweden when we also moved on from the group play in the World Cup. 2020 will be even better with United.”


“United has the best audience in the series, they follow us in the contingency. I also feel appreciated by the fans which mean a lot to me. Promises to come with some ‘samba’ even in the coming season,” she concluded.
