Former Borussia Dortmund and Ajax midfielder, Sunday Oliseh, has heaped praise on Nigerian forward Akor Adams for his impressive goal against Lorient, as Adams continues to make a name for himself at Montpellier, Soccernet.ng reports.
The 23-year-old Nigerian forward made the switch to the French Ligue 1 side from Lillestrom during the summer transfer window.
Since joining Montpellier, Adams has been in sensational form, scoring five goals in just seven appearances, establishing himself as a formidable striker and earning recognition from both the Nigerian football community and fans worldwide.
In their recent encounter with FC Lorient, where Montpellier secured a convincing 3-0 victory, Adams played a pivotal role. He scored a brace during his full 90 minutes on the pitch.
In the build-up to the third goal, Adams received a well-placed pass from the midfield. He skillfully dribbled past a Lorient defender and then fired the ball past Yvon Mvogo to seal the victory.
This goal caught the attention of former midfield maestro, Oliseh, who was impressed by Adams’ dribbling and finishing skills.
“As kids in Lagos, we used to call this dribble before scoring by Akor Adams ‘Kuro lọna’… Abeg Commot for road … Simply beautifully executed.” Oliseh expressed his admiration on his X (formerly Twitter) feed.
