Former Kano Pillars, Nasarawa United and 3SC wing wizard Tony Edjomariegwe is a fans favourite in the Moroccan City of Safi after a successful debut season with the local club Olympic Club du Safi. Tony joined Olympic Safi in December and immediately won over the club’s teeming supporters with his dazzling skills, assists and goals.
Speaking exclusively to papilonews.com, Tony said that he’s settled down quickly in Safi, and is enjoying life in the Moroccan Botola league. “Life in Safi and Morocco has been very enjoyable. I went straight into the first team after joining the team in late December and it didn’t take me long to make my mark in the team through my ability to create chances for my team mates and also grabbing a few goals myself.”
“The team did well when I came in December. Even though we finished ninth on the table, I managed two goals and about 5 assists.The fans love me and treat me like a super star on the streets of Safi.Safi is a beautiful city with beautiful people and I’m happy to be here.”
Safi is the main fishing port for the country’s sardine industry, and the local side Olympic Club du Safi plays in the 15, 000 capacity Stade El Massira. They are currently on summer break but resume for pre-season by July ending.
