Umar Sadiq, Almeria’s striker, has stated that he hopes to win the Segunda Division Golden Boot as well as help the club return to La Liga.
On October 5, 2020, the Nigerian signed a five-year deal with the Rojiblancos from Serbian club Partizan.
Sadiq has 18 goals, behind only Espanyol’s Raul de Tomas (22 goals) and Sporting Gijon’s Djurdjevic (24 goals) in the race for the Golden Boot.
Unbeaten in their last three games, impressive results in their last five games could earn them an automatic ticket to the Spanish top flight or a place in the promotion play-off at least.
“I’m satisfied, on a personal level, with the goals that I’ve scored so far, but the important thing is not that,” Usman told the club website.
“All that matters is that we can win promotion to Primera Division, which is the prime objective.
“I don’t look at what the other players who also have scored many goals are doing, although it’s clear that I’d like my team to get promoted and also be the top scorer.
“We, strikers, are here to score goals and help our teams, so in addition to scoring, I like giving assists and contributing as much as I can to the team.”
