Liverpool Ladies sign Nigerian female football star, Asisat Oshoala

20 year old current African Female Footballer of the year Asisat Oshoala this afternoon Jan. 23rd signed on to Liverpool Ladies football club. Asisat is the first African to be signed on the club.
Oshoala was one of the stars of last year’s U20 World Cup in Canada, finishing as the tournament’s top goalscorer as Nigeria finished runners-up to Germany.
Asisat joins Liverpool off the back of winning the double with former side Angels in her native Nigeria.

Speaking of her move to Liverpool, Asisat said: “Since I began my football career I have always dreamt of being a professional footballer so to be able to join the reigning Women’s Super League champions is absolutely fantastic.
“Liverpool Ladies are a massive club who have some fantastic players who I believe can help to develop my game to the next level. It was also a big incentive to be able to play in the UEFA Women’s Champions League which is a huge competition and one I’m confident we can do well in.”
Manager Beard said: “I’m absolutely thrilled to have signed Asisat as she is one of the world’s top young footballers. Asisat proved in the U20 World Cup what a top class talent she is and this signing is a big coup for us.
