His name Joseph Bassey but he is known in football circles as ” Small Motor “. A Small Motor with a big engine that produces amazing performances in the middle of the pack for Nigerian National League club Ibom Youths Fc.
The Ibom Youths Fc Jersey number 10 is celebrating his birthday today and took time out to speak with SportsRation.com this afternoon. The Midfielder bared his mind on his career plans, club and personal targets ahead of this weekend’s NNL match vs Bendel Insurance.
Birthday Plans ?
JB10: ” It’s my Birthday but there’s no party today. We just returned from Ekiti and I’m wholly focused on the weekend game vs Bendel Insurance . Maybe after the game I will celebrate. Maybe !
Next Career Plans ?
JB10: To play in the NPFL next season or if a good offer comes from a team abroad I could go there. I’ve got what it takes to play anywhere. I’m only thinking about helping Ibom Youths Fc finish top of the table at the moment. We will see what happens at the end of the season.
The Ekiti United Incident ?
JB10: ” We arrived Ekiti ready to play and win but on Wednesday they failed to provide liscences for their players while we waited on the turf . The league board decided the game cannot go on and since they failed to do the needful, the Referees called off the game.
I’m not speaking for the NNL board but I think we should be awarded the points. For me its three points in the bag. Lets just pray and hope for a fair judgement by the NNL board. ”
On the game against Bendel Insurance on Saturday ?
JB10 ” We face what might be our biggest game of the season yet. Bendel Insurance are top of the standings a place we want to be at the end of the season so we will go out to win and give ourselves a good chance of promotion.
” It’s a game at home, we played really well in the first leg and a performance like that will give us a convincing win tomorrow. ”

JB10 ” We will get bigger . Keep supporting “.
