Sparta Rotterdam coach, Henk Fraser has hailed Super Eagles goalkeeper, Maduka Okoye’s rising ‘mental strength and development’ playing for the Dutch Eredivisie side.

Okoye put on an impressive performance at the weekend against Go Ahead Eagles, keeping another clean sheet as De Kasteelheren (The Castle Lords) won the game 1-0 at the Sparta Stadium to keep their hopes of surviving the relegation threat alive.

Speaking during his post-match news conference, Fraser lauded Okoye for his overall performance so far this season.

“He has it in him to be the very best because his foundation is very grounded,” Fraser told reporters.

“Over time you see his mental strength and development increase and it is helping him.

“He has done well this season enough to say he is in the debate of the best young keepers in Europe at the moment.”

Okoye has featured in 20 of Sparta’s 24 Eredivisie games so far this term. He has conceded 29 goals and recorded 4 clean sheets.

Sparta are currently 17th in the 18-team Dutch Eredivisie, with two games in hand. Their next match is against the home side, NEC, on Saturday, March 19, 2022.
