Sunshine Stars defender Anthony Anioke is convinced by his partnership with Sholumade Bolu.
Anioke and Sholumade have become Sunshine Stars’ established first-choice pairing at the heart of the Owena Whales’ defence under Deji Ayeni and were both very busy all through the duration of their 1-0 win over Kwara United on Sunday.
“Bolu is a really fantastic player, very experienced and also good with the ball,” said Anioke.
“As a centre-back I find delight in playing with him because he always has your back and is very dangerous during aerial battles.
“To add to that, he is also a good communicator and communication is one, if not the most important tools to an excellent defending.
“It helps make you stay really close to the rest of your team-mates and quash the attacking threats and ideas of the opponent directly from its source.
“With the way we both play here, I must say it’s a different type of defending to how we did in our ex respective clubs but I’m convinced of our style of play and we’ll achieve quite alot together if we continue this way.”
