Nigeria’s Super Eagles midfielder, Joe Aribo has disclosed that he dropped out of University to pursue a career in football.

The Rangers midfielder, who made this revelation while in a chat with William Troost-Ekong on his YouTube channel, was born in England to Nigerian parents and started his football career with Kinetic Academy before joining a non-league side in Staines Town where he moved to Charlton Athletics.

“At 18, I was going to the university, studying Sports science and playing with Staines. Then I got a move to Charlton, then I can stop schooling for now.

“I spend just one season at Charlton, then my contract ran out, so I didn’t sign a new deal. Rangers gave me a call, and I can’t turn it down,” he said.

The midfielder signed a four-year contract with the Scottish club and made his debut on the 9th of July 2019 in a 4–0 win over St Joseph’s of Gibraltar in the Europa League.

His outstanding performance in the colors of the Gers earned an opportunity in the Super Eagles of Nigeria and made his debut against Ukraine.

He won his first senior trophy with Rangers last season and has gone to play in 10 competitive matches for Nigeria, scoring two goals.
