Nigerian striker Ezekiel Henty is confident he can finish the season in Slovenia as the top scorer. The striker's confidence soared after scoring twice for his side, Olimpija Ljubljana's 2-1 away win over Koper in a Slovenian league match on Sunday.
Henty's 20th minute opener was cancelled out by Koper's Josip Ivancic in the 46th minute, but the Nigerian scored the winner in the 63rd minute as ten man Olimpija Ljubljana held on for their tenth win of the campaign.
Henty who took his goal tally to seven in the Slovenian league told Completesportsnigeria.com in a chat that he hoped to surpass his compatriot, Blessing Eleke who has nine goals so far.
"I'm happy with my brace, but I hope to end the season as top scorer in the league, but Blessing is leading now and I'm confident I can catch him," Henty said in a chat with Completesportsnigeria.com
Henty who has been linked away from the club also revealed that he had concrete offers from German teams that he hopes will meet his club's valuation in January.
"I have offers from Germany and I hope they return in January," Henty said.
Meanwhile, Henty's agent, former Super Eagles striker, Ayodele Makinwa had told Completesportsnigeria.com that the forward will only join a club where he will develop more than he has so far.
