Posted : 22 September 2023
Akor Adams, an ex-Flying Eagles forward, expressed his long-standing admiration for Ligue 1, having been inspired by Nigerian legends like Okocha, Utaka, and Osimhen.
After joining Montpellier last summer, Adams quickly made a name for himself, scoring two goals in under two minutes during his debut against Le Havre, setting a record for the quickest double by a debutant in Ligue 1.
The 23-year-old acknowledges the league's challenges but remains committed to adapting swiftly.
He's played five matches this season, netting three times.
Notably, Utaka was pivotal for Montpellier in their 2011/2012 league victory, while both Okocha and Osimhen had standout spells with PSG and Lille respectively.
