See 36-Year-Old Ex Nigeria Striker Desperate To Work On His Catwalk And Pose For Goal Celebration

Ex Nigeria international and Kyoto Sanga of Japan striker, Peter Utaka, says he needs to work on his catwalk and pose after netting a brace for his team in their 2-1 J2 League home win over Ehime on Sunday.

Many people would find this amusing, coming in the twilight of his checkered career when he should be more concerned about life in retirement.

The 36-year-old may have pondered this for long before baring his mind in a post on his Instagram page on Monday 20 July, when he uploaded his team's group photograph stating: "I need to work on my catwalk and my pose".

It is however not clear if he intends to use them in enhancing his clothing line, PUclothing9 or to wow his fans after 23 years of playing for 16 clubs.

Utaka, who isn't in any way flamboyant, started his career at UNTH FC of Nigeria in 1997 before going on to play at Dinamo Zagreb, Maasmechelen, Westerlo, Royal Antwerp, OB Odense, Dalian Aerbin, Beijing Guoan, Shanghai Shenxin, Shimizu S-Pulse, Sanfrecce Hiroshima, FC Tokyo, Vejle Boldklub, Tokushima Vortis, Ventforet Kofu and Kyoto Sanga.

He was capped seven times by Nigeria, scoring three goals from 2010–2011, a rather brief international career, compared to his older sibling, John, also a striker, who played for the Super Eagles for many years.
