Akeem Latifu Delighted To Make Aalesund DebutFormer Nigeria youth international Akeem Latifu was clearly delighted with his league debut for Aalesund in their 3 - 1 victory over Sarpsborg 08 last weekend in the 19th round of matches in the Norwegian top division.

Manager Jan Jönsson threw the 23 - year - old fullback into the fray after Demar Phillips got injured in the 17th minute.

'' I am very happy to debut for AaFK and want to thank the manager for his trust. I only signed for the club last Friday and 48 hours was on the pitch.

'' I think I enjoyed myself on the pitch and want to continue doing my best for this club in their push to qualify for Europe.

'' Since I came here, everybody - the coaching staff and supporters - have been warm,'' Akeem Latifu said to allnigeriasoccer.com.

This portal understands that Akeem Latifu will start Sunday's game against Tromso.

His contract with current cup winners Hodd will run out at the end of next season.
