Former Super Eagles Player, Taye Taiwo has signed with Salon Palloilijat. The contract will be effective from January, 1 2022.
Taiwo who had a lengthy interview with BBC Sports Africa, said he is still very much active in playing and also spoke about his signing to a third division club.
“The reason I can play football actively now is because I still have plenty left in the tank. A lot of people always say that Africans retire early but I am a living proof that we can still play into our late 30s and early 40s.
“I know it’s a club in the third division and they are keen to gain promotion. It could be my biggest challenge in Finland, another country I can call home”.
“I love Challenges and the ambition of the club to play in the second tier, was a big factor in my decision to come back to Finland. I know I could’ve gone elsewhere but imagine achieving success with Salon Palloilijat, people will talk about me forever in the city”.
Taiwo is excited to make a name for himself in his new club.
