Bricklayer Taiwo Awoniyi Becomes A Defense-Breaker
Taiwo Awoniyi has established a strong reputation as a goal scorer in recent seasons and his background as a bricklayer in Nigeria has aided him.
The wish has come true. Taiwo Awoniyi has been a member of the Premier League since the summer of 2022. A dedication to the Nottingham Forest player.
He told BBC Sport Africa that it was the one thing he kept telling others like his high school mates and teammates, even though they did not always believe him. His bricklaying profession has enabled him to pay for his transportation to a training centre as well as the soccer equipment he requires.
Taiwo Awoniyi has relied on former Nigerian international Seyi Olofinjana to provide himself with the tools to dream. He was thereafter accepted into his academy by the latter.
Liverpool is a wasteland, Taiwo Awoniyi believed he would succeed by joining Liverpool when he moved to Berlin for the rebirth in 2015. But it was difficult to play in England without a work visa. He decided to go back home as a result of this.
The striker left the Reds without making a single appearance and proceeded on loan to Nijmegen, Royal Excel Mouscron, KAA Gent, Frankfurt, Mainz and Union Berlin in Germany.
Taiwo Awoniyi had 10 goals in his first season in the English Premier League with six of those coming in the last four games against Southampton, Chelsea, Arsenal and Crystal Palace.
Additionally, he was the scorer of the goal that kept Forest in the Premier League. There is no doubt that the striker will be highly anticipated with the new season beginning this weekend.
