“As we know there are many talents in the country, so if anyone has the opportunity to represent Nigeria, the individual should give a good account of himself or else the opportunity will be given to another person.”
Momoh, who started out with Amateur side Divine Praise Football Club of Lagos and presently on loan with Heartland, has attracted suitors from within and outside the country with his representative saying when the time is right Momoh will definitely make a move.
