US Monastir striker Anthony Okpotu has ended his first season in Tunisia as the highest goalscorer in Ligue 1.

The former Lobi Stars talisman scored 13 goals in 23 league appearances to help the Monastir-based outfit finish third in the 2019-20 Tunisian top-flight table.

The 26-year-old who left Nigeria for his second stint abroad in 2018, won the top scorer award in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) in 2017 after scoring 19 goals for Lobi Stars.

Following his landmark feat, he will shift his attention to Wednesday’s Tunisian Cup game when US Monastir visit Ligue 2 outfit EGS Gafsa for a place in the semi-final.

Okpotu moved to Tunisia last August after spending a year with Moroccan side Difaa El Jadida. He struggled for playing minutes in El Jadida and he was sent out on loan to Albania to join Laci for the remainder of the 2018-19 season.

During his debut campaign in Tunisia, the Nigeria international scored two braces this year – against Stade Tunisien and Hammam-Lif.

Okpotu was part of the Super Eagles’ team that made it to the final of the 2018 African Nations Championship in Morocco where they lost to the hosts 4-0.
