Sylvester Emeka Igboun, a striker and attacking midfielder for the Russian Premier League club FC Ufa has become the club’s all-time leading goalscorer with 24 goals in official games.
The former FC Midtjylland attacker attained this following his brace over the weekend in their 4-1 win over Ural in a league game.
“I feel so good about this achievement. It is not easy.
My target as always been to score as many goals as I can, and do better than past seasons. I am delighted to have been able to achieve that and setting a record as Ufa’s all-time top goals scorer.”
