Liverpool Ladies have signed recently named African Women's Player of the Year,
The Women’s Super League Champions secured the signature of the highly rated 20
year-old Nigerian international from Nigerian Women’s
Championship title winners, Rivers Angels.
Asisat is an explosive forward who was voted as the most valuable player at the U20 World Cup in Canada in 2014 finishing as the top goalscorer as the
Falconets finished runners up to Germany.
Asisat also helped Rivers Angels to their first league title victory since 2010 as they beat Pelican
Stars to the title as well as helping Rivers Angels to retain
the Nigerian Women’s Cup.
Matt Beard’s side are currently preparing for the upcoming WSL
and Champions League campaigns having retained the
title on the final day in 2014.
Speaking of her move to Liverpool, Asisat said: “Since I began my football career I have always dreamt of being a professional footballer so to be
able to join the reigning Women’s Super League champions is absolutely fantastic.
“Liverpool Ladies are a massive Club who have some fantastic
players who I believe can help to develop my game to the next
level. It was also a big incentive to be able to play in the Uefa
Women’s Champions League which is a huge competition
and one I’m confident we can do well in.”
Liverpool Ladies manager, Matt Beard said: “I’m absolutely
thrilled to have signed Asisat as she is one of the World’s top
young footballers. Asisat proved in the U20 World Cup what a top class talent she is and this signing is a big coup for us.
“The Women’s Super League continues to improve year after
year so it is vital that we strengthen our squad following last season’s successful title defence. This signing is definitely one that the supporters can be extremely excited about.”
