Funso Ojo player profile
Port Vale added Belgian midfielder Funso Ojo as their second signing of the summer of 2021.
The experienced 30 year-old had previously played for Aberdeen, Scunthorpe United and Wigan Athletic as well as several clubs in the Netherlands. A former Belgian U21 International, Ojo had made over 300 career appearances.
Director of Football David Flitcroft commented on the move saying: “As a club, we’ve been in League Two for a long time, and we’re about to make the step up to a league that has got some big hitters and teams with fantastic managers and squads that have League One experience and you look at that and you want to want to make sure that we add that experience to strengthen what we’ve already got and we also want to add to the intelligence levels of the players.
“I think from a coaching point of view, we know we’re going have to come up with different strategies and we think that Funso is the type of player that can conduct and orchestrate them on the pitch. We’ve got someone who has been at the level and that’s key and it’s important that we look for and can attract a player with that kind of profile.”
