Flying Eagles stars Adewale Oladoye and Chinonso Emeka signed their first professional contracts with Belgian side KAA Gent last week having been with Water FC Academy in Nigeria.
The two Nigerian teenagers defied the norm of wearing suits and track wears at unveiling and were unveiled in native attire popularly referred as “Ẹṣikí” by the Yoruba people of South Western Nigeria.
They were noticed by ex-Buffalo Egu Augustine and Marc Clarysse. “They will have the opportunity to mature with the reserves team, and now and then already train with the first team.” the club said in a statement.
Gent is a club in Belgium’s first division, the Jupiler Pro League and finished second on the table behind Club Brugge in the 2019/20 season.
