Nigerian born forward Samson Akinyoola is training hard for the 2022/23 season.
The Benin Republic international recently joined Zamalek from Cacaras in a well publicized move.
Akinyoola joined the rest of the White Knights to intensify preparations for future assignments.
36 Lion graduate, Samson Akinyoola signed a three-year deal that will keep him at Zamalek till June 30th 2025.
The 22-year-old Beninese striker is a rising star. During the 2021 Venezuelan Premier Division season, he scored 18 goals in 34 combined appearances across the regular season and playoffs as Caracas – the country’s most successful club – went all the way to the final before eventually losing to Deportivo Tachira.
Akinyoola – who had a previous spell with Slovakian top-flight side FK Senica – also chipped in with six assists, while he found the net twice in four Copa Libertadores matches.
He scored eight goals in 2022 for Caracas.
Nicknamed the ‘Bison’ for his broad physique, Akinyoola is strong and surprisingly explosive given his large frame and lack of height. He’s also skillful and clinical in front of goal.
