Babatunde Bello, New Akwa United Engine Room In Midfield

April, 26 2022.

Babatunde Bello, diminutive and creative midfielder with special talent, is no doubt one of the best midfielders in the league at the moment.


The former Ekiti United player who signed for Sunshine Stars at the beginning of the season, before he was loaned out to Akwa United by the parent club Ottasolo FC.


He is a combative midfielder, full of strength, good marker of the ball, accurate long passes of the ball. His greatest strength is to shoot from a distance, which makes him a typical modern day midfielder.

He can play as defensive midfielder, offensive midfielder or perhaps play behind the striker.

Since joining Akwa United, Babatunde Bello has directly contributed 5 goals in his 5 appearances for the Promise Keepers. He scored 3goals and assists to his credit. He scored the only goal that nailed Lobi stars over the weekend. What a player!


He would have been a great addition to Coach Ladan Bosso’s team, but he was dropped based on controversies surrounding his passport. Hopefully, he will be useful to the U23 and CHAN Super Eagles.
