The boss of the English Championship club Watford FC Slaven Bilic has heaped praises on the little-known Nigeria youngster Tobi Adeyemo.
The 17-year-old attacker was the hero on Saturday at the Vicarage road as the Hornet defeated Blackpool 2-0.
” Many young players in that situation would only have the aim of hitting the ball.
“They wouldn’t want to mis-hit it. They wouldn’t want to be embarrassed, you know what I mean. They end up barely touching the ball
“But not Tobi. He wanted to score,” said Bilic, clapping his hands together loudly and adding, “He gave it a proper finish.
“That was good, I like that mentality.”
We always planned that he was going to come on,” he said.
“We were hoping we would be winning and then the last 20 minutes we’d put him on and he could close them down with his running.
“But as it turned out we needed him to be different, and to be creative and good on the ball. That’s exactly what he did”, he told Watford Observer.
