Former Kano Pillars FC striker, Junior Lokosa is grateful to Eunisell for introducing Eunisell Boot Award which he became the inaugural winner after bagging 19 goals in the Nigeria Professional Football League 2017/2018 season.
The media hype around Lokosa’s award caught the attention of African Champions, Tunisia’s Esperance Sportive, who recently signed the Kano Pillars star.
Incidentally, Lokosa had previously travelled to China and Norway seeking a club, but walked away without securing a deal.
Lokosa believes his story can inspire other young playersplying their trade in the Nigeria Professional Football League.
“It was only after the Eunisell Boot award had been made along with all the publicity, that my career turned a corner. There can be no doubt that the award will spur young, aspiring players and Nigerian league footballers to perform at a much higher level the rewards are real”, Lokosa said.
