It is not easy to score 20 goals in any competition, not even in a league as tough as Second Division. Umar Sadiq did it in his first season (In addition, he scored two in the Cup and six in the Serbian league) and even so there was numerous criticism around the Nigerian. Due to his good work on the green, the rojiblanco club worked its way out last season, moving it to further increase its price and obtain huge profits, as happened in previous months with Darwin Núñez (Benfica paid 24 million euros). With a rescission clause of 60 kilos, Almería began to negotiate in 30, without finally closing his march despite the numerous suitors and the fact that his continuity seemed a utopia when he offered his best version last season.
The Nigerian starred in one of his best exhibitions in Alcorcón with the red and white jacket, making it clear that his good work last year was no accident. His two targets catapult him in the current season to four, that is, to the top of the Second Division scorers table. However, the positive for the interests of Almería is that the Nigerian He is not limited to scoring goals, but his repertoire is much greater. His mastery of the various facets of the game is vast, As was demonstrated in Santo Domingo, where he played and made his teammates play; he went down to unload and give fluidity to the indálico game, creating spaces for Ramazani and company; and defined twice.
The Nigerian had the knife between his teeth at all times and smelled rival blood. Opened the can after five minutes when he did not forgive, finishing off with his right hand at the first touch a rejection in Bellvís after a shot by Robertone. Ten minutes later he took advantage of a great deep ball that Portillo sent him to enter the rival area, cut Carlos Hernández and define perfectly with his left foot to the left post of Dani Giménez. He had the treble in 36 ', but the penalty result defines the figure of Umar Sadiq: his shot crashed into the wood to go down and bounce off the home goal before going inside.
He was able to score more in different danger opportunities, like the one he had in the 43rd minute that Dani Giménez took him or the discount of the first half in which he sent the ball to the crossbar from 50 meters. In addition, Kaduna's was a constant headache for the pottery defense with its breakthroughs. That Almería placed the lowest block last night than usual was a blessing for Sadiq, who swelled to attack the spaces behind the local defense, taking advantage of the great balls that Portillo, Robertone and company sent him. The Nigerian forgets what happened in El Toralín, where he was an island and was unassisted, and begins to scare his rivals. Because having one of the best weapons in the category can be differential.
