Nigerian player, Gbolahan Salami said he has been subjected to repeated negative press in the country because of his checkered past in the Nigerian league.
The 26-year-old Striker played for Sunshine Stars, Shooting Stars and Warri Wolves in the Nigerian top flight before joining Finnish club, KuPS in 2016.
In his second season at the club, the striker has scored 14 goals in 31 appearances and insists he’s having a refreshing experience at his new club.
However, Salami who has been severally described as the Bad boy of Nigerian football and enfant terrible says he has managed to avoid controversies in Finland.
“I played for about eight seasons in Nigeria, but all the media ever wrote about me was negative.
“I once read a report about how I beat up my agent, who incidentally was with me when I got the report,” he said
Gbolahan Salami was a huge prospect in the NPFL and had his best season yet in the colors of Warri Wolves before he left the Country.
He explained that Finland would not tolerate a recalcitrant, if he were one and has survived two amazing seasons without any skirmishes.
“I have been in Finland for two seasons now, if I was such a bad person perhaps my contract would have been terminated.
“People should not judge me by my past actions.”
