Ex Danish champions are set to repeat the same template that has brought them financial success in recent times
Taking to their official website, FC Midtjylland has publicized the capture of 18-year-old dynamic midfielder Gabriel Kehinde Victor from FC Ebedei in Nigeria.
Making clear why the Wolves brought the teenager to Denmark, the club’s deputy sports manager Ove Pedersen noted that Gabriel has an “energetic midfield engine with excellent technique and a great physical package.
“He must be drilled for European football, but we fully believe that together we can maximize his great potential.”
Gabriel is expected to team up with Midtjylland’s u-19 side at first.
The youngster will look to follow in the footsteps of illustrious compatriots who became part of Midtjylland from their sister club in Nigeria before obtaining success in Europe.
Genk striker Paul Onuachu and Brentford’s midfielder Frank Onyeka came to Denmark as teenagers from FC Ebedei and are now among the most popular Super Eagles stars in Europe.
Midtjylland got them for next to nothing but permitted Onuachu to join the Smurfs for €6 million in 2019 and warranted Onyeka’s switch to the Bees this summer for €10 million.
