2nd Div League : Odafa Pens Deal With Southern Samity
Kolkata outfit Southern Samity have pulled off a major coup ahead of the 2nd Division League final round by roping in the 31-year-old Nigerian forward Odafa Okolie.
The news was confirmed by a Southern Samity official on Saturday evening.
Odafa, popularly known as 'King Cobra' is a familiar face in the Kolkata footballing circuit. He has represented City giants Mohun Bagan AC from 2011-2014 before returning to Goa.
Odafa last played for Sporting Club de Goa in the 2015-16 edition of the I-League where scored 6 goals, helping his club avoid the drop. However, his contract was not renewed at the end of the season as he was still struggling with injuries.
