16-year-old Nigerian forward included in Bayer Leverkusen squad

Posted : 18 April 2024

German-born Nigerian striker Ken Izekor is set to feature in Bayer Leverkusen's Europa League clash against West Ham United.

Izekor was part of the twenty-two players who traveled to London for the match.

During the pre-match press conference, Bayer coach Xabi Alonso addressed Izekor's inclusion and Borja Iglesias' absence due to injury.

Alonso explained that Iglesias is sidelined with a minor injury, hence his exclusion from the squad.

Iglesias missed the title-winning game against Werder Bremen and will also sit out the match against Borussia Dortmund.

Adam Hložek is also unavailable due to an ankle injury, further opening up opportunities for Izekor.

The 16-year-old has impressed this season, contributing nine goals and four assists for Bayer Leverkusen. 

Izekor, who joined Bayer Leverkusen in 2018 from Alemannia Aachen's youth team, is the youngest Nigerian to play in the Europa League.
