Former Nigeria Professional Football League striker, Anthony Okpotu, on Monday gave the biggest hint of ending career at former club Lobi Stars FC of Makurdi.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Okpotu, 25, who currently plies his trade at Tunisian club side, US Monastir, started his career at Lobi Stars.
The Nigerian international revealed his ambition to finish career at Lobi Stars on Monday via his Twitter handle.
Okpotu tweeted: “71 goals for @LobiStars in the @npflsoccer @LMCNPFL 1st goal was against @NigerTornadoes (Header) and the last (FOR NOW) was against @RangersIntFC (Free kick).
“I need to make it round figure 80 GOALS; Final season of active football I’ll make it happen.”
The forward bagged the Nigerian Professional Football League highest goalscorer award after scoring 19 goals for Lobi in the 2016-17 season.
While in Makurdi, Okpotu netted 71 goals for Lobi Stars and has expressed his desire to return to the team in the final season of his career to increase his goal tally to 80.
Okpotu moved from Lobi Stars to Al-Ittihad Tripoli, Libya in the 2013/2014 season.
In April 2018, he had a trial at Danish club Brøndby before he joined Morocco side Difaâ Hassani El Jadidi in July same year.
After failing to command regular shirt at the Morocco side, he was loaned out to Albanian club KF Laçion in January 2019.
The former NPFL goal-king joined Union Sportive Monastirienne of Tunisia from Morocco side Difaâ Hassani El Jadidi on a two-year deal in August last year.
The Benue State-born striker played a crucial role when Nigeria emerged runner-up at the African Nations Championship in Morocco in 2018.
He scored twice during the tournament.
