Chima Okorie Interview
By: Rob Sedgwick
The Fishy brings you an interview with former Grimsby Town striker Chima Okorie, still a cult hero in some quarters amongst Town supporters.
Despite Chima's limited number of appearances in a black and white shirt, the Nigerian is fondly remembered by those who saw him play for Grimsby, and at least one Cod Head has included the now 32-year-old striker in his all-time Grimsby line-up! This despite the Nigerian-born frontman having made just five substitute appearances in a Town shirt back in 1993, and never scoring a league goal! Quite some impression!
Okorie, who is currently serving a two year ban imposed by the India Football Federation, has started an ambitious project via his web site to help youngsters in remote parts of India (eventually extending to others parts of the third world) launch football and cricket careers in the West.
Chima, who scored over three hundred goals in his fifteen-year career in India, reveals in his interview that he is looking to return to the UK as a player when his two year ban from football ends in September.
Some of Chima's former clubs: Mohun Bagan (India), East Bengal (India), Grimsby (5/0), Peterborough (0/0), Torquay Utd (36/6), Ikast (Denmark), Sogndal (Norway)
