Almeria striker, Umar Sadiq, has said he is hoping to win the Segunda Division Golden Boot, as well as help the club return to La Liga.
The Nigerian joined the Rojiblancos from Serbian side Partizan on a five-year contract on October 5, 2020.
Having found the net on 18 occasions, Sadiq is behind only Espanyol’s Raul de Tomas (22 goals) and Sporting Gijon’s Djurdjevic (24 goals) in the race for the Golden Boot prize.
Unbeaten in their last three games, impressive results in their last five games could earn them an automatic ticket to the Spanish top flight or a place in the promotion play-off at least.
“I’m satisfied, on a personal level, with the goals that I’ve scored so far, but the important thing is not that,” Usman told the club website.
“All that matters is that we can win promotion to Primera Division, which is the prime objective.
“I don’t look at what the other players who also have scored many goals are doing, although it’s clear that I’d like my team to get promoted and also be the top scorer.
“We, strikers, are here to score goals and help our teams, so in addition to scoring, I like giving assists and contributing as much as I can to the team.”
