Odense Boldklub (OB) top scorer, Peter Utaka has welcomed the appointment of Lars Lagerback as Eagles coach to the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
Utaka said thatÂ the coming of the big Swede, will open the door for other young Nigerian players who were over looked by the former coach, Shauibu Amodu for the Nation Cup.
â€œLagerback has eyes for talented players. I am positive that he will give Nigeria a good team for the World Cup.
â€œNigeria did not present a good team at the Nations Cup, because the coaches overlooked younger and fitter players during their selection for the Nations Cup,â€ said Utaka.
He is the younger brother of John Utaka who was also rejected by coach Amodu for the Angola 2010 Nations Cup.Utaka is currently his club top scorer with 32 goals from 53 appearances. He is a fast forward with dribbling skills.
