Gombe United goalkeeper Itodo Akor is proud to be named new club captain ahead of the 2022/2023 NPFL season.
The Nigerian has inherited the armband on a full-time basis following Yusuf Alhassan’s departure, and is delighted to be starting a new chapter in his career.
“It makes me really proud and happy to be Gombe United captain – it’s a great honour,” the shotstopper says when quizzed by Lodgexpress official website.
“I’m not going to change my personality, though. The boss makes you captain because of the way you are, so I’m not going to change how I am in the dressing room, on the pitch or off the pitch. I want to lead by example, and do as well as I can on the pitch.
“Maybe I am not much of a talker away from the pitch, but I want to lead the team through the way I play.”
