I also enjoyed exploring the beautiful city of Malaga and since I returned, my wish is to become a legend of Malaga CF”.

Speaking about the initiative, LaLiga Delegate in Nigeria, Guillermo Perez Castello said, “We want to thank Malaga C.F for giving Peter the opportunity to nurture and develop his talent.
