NAME: Osahon “Macky” Eboigbe
DATE OF BIRTH: September 11, 1989
PLACE OF BIRTH: Benin City, Nigeria
CAREER AND PROFESSIONAL ACTIVITIES: For the 2007–2008 season, Eboigbe was loaned from the Blackburn Rovers Youth Academy to Belgian first division side Cercle Brugge. The main reason for this move was because Eboigbe was due to turn 18 soon after, and as a consequence would be needing documents necessary to be eligible to play in English football as a non-EU player, documents which he would not receive. In Belgium, these regulations in football are far less strict.
Dwight Wille, who was also in the Rovers’ Youth Academy in 2006–07, stated that in his view, Osahon Eboigbe was one of the most promising players in the Blackburn Rovers U-19 team. Macky made his début for Cercle on December 8, 2007, against Exc. Mouscron. Cercle won the match 3–0.
